Jun 11, 2024

The agricultural sector in South Tapanuli is celebrating good news once again. Eight organic farming facilitators in the Batangtoru region have officially obtained certification after participating in training and competency exams facilitated by Agincourt Resources. This certification is a crucial asset for the facilitators as they guide farmers in implementing sustainable organic farming systems and producing high-quality food products. 

The certification activities were divided into two stages. In the first stage, held from June 6-11, 2024, the facilitators received training and hands-on practice in making organic fertilizers and botanical pesticides, as well as post-harvest management for organic farming. In the second stage, on June 12, 2024, the facilitators were tested through competency exams to ensure they are ready to assist farmers in the field.
