Farmer Partner Survey

 

ChenYi Agventures (CYA) is a company whose vision is to be one of the biggest players in the Philippine rice industry through producing quality rice. With this vision in mind, it is putting up a Rice Processing Center (RPC) in the Municipality of Alang Alang in the Province of Leyte which is in the Eastern Visayas region of the country and embarking on a Farmer Partnership Program that shall be the source of the quality of rice that is processed by the plant adhering to sustainable agriculture standards.
Breta Consulting Corporation was contracted by CYA to conduct the baseline survey of farmer partners in the municipalities of Alang-Alang, Sta.Fe, Palo and Pastrana, Leyte Province to understand the context on-the-ground of farmers that will facilitate a deeper understanding of current practices that will pave the way for developing strategies and interventions in organizing farmers towards compliance with Sustainable Rice Platform standards and development of a Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) framework to be used when the SRP program is rolled out.
