With support from HRDP-JICA, the Dzongkhag Agriculture Sector, Trashigang in collaboration with RNRRDC, Wengkhar is organizing a crop competition/display coinciding with 106th National Day Celebration at Trashigang Middle Secondary School ground on 17 December 2013.
Crop competition/display is an effective extension methodology to disseminate the information on research technologies and to assess the existing crops and their products in the Dzongkhag. It also provides avenue for the farmers to assess their own product and learn on available technologies for further improvement.
The main objectives of this program are:
1. To encourage rural farmers through recognition in national event
2. To create awareness among civil servants and urban residents on local produce
3. To popularize crop competition as a simple and effective research and extension methodology
Thus, to make this program very successful a total of 41 farmers from Bartsham, Bidung, Kanglung, Samkhar and Shongphoog Gewogs are participating with seven varieties of vegetables [Broccoli, Cabbage, Cauliflower, Carrot, Garlic, Mustard Green (Sag) and Radish] and one fruit variety [Orange (Mandarin)].
Therefore, all the Civil Servants, Business Community and the Public under Trashigang Dzongkhag are cordially invited to witness the program at Trashigang Middle Secondary School Ground on 17 December 2013.
