Within the framework of this program, Agincourt Resources set several targets that were successfully achieved. Five farmers and one Penyuluh Pertanian Lapangan (PPL) were successfully trained and gained in-depth knowledge of bulb selection, land preparation, and red onion planting techniques. In addition, the red onion production from 0.7 hectares of land reached 8.56 tons, marking the initial success of this program.

In addition to providing capital and training, Agincourt Resources also assisted in marketing the harvest. Collaboration with local distributors and traders has become an important strategy to ensure that red onions from Sipenggeng Village can be well absorbed in the market.
