FAODA Success Stories

 

 

 

The main problem facing FAODA in achieving its mission, the lack of awareness among farmers, but it is possible to go beyond this limit and say: quite unaware of farmers in organic agriculture, this adversely affecting the environment from several directions as follow:

 

Farmers disposal of crop residues through burning it inside their farms, this pollutes the environment through the smoke, which causes black fume and resulting diseases of the chest,,, etc.

Leaving residues on the edges of the agricultural land, causing disease in existing crops through gathering insects and pests on those residues and then transfer to crops, which leading to using pesticide.

Farmers use pesticides and chemical fertilizers in overexploited, this because of their ignorance of the risks to their recovery packages on canals and channels, leading to severe pollution of the environment affecting all related organisms.

 

FAODA set strategy and have taken deliberate steps to reach the desired goal (sensitization and training farmers on organic agriculture in order to preserve the environment, public health) that's through:

 

 1- Signing a cooperation protocol with the Central Laboratory for Organic Agriculture to
     conduct awareness campaigns and promote organic concept and train cadres trained

     farmers and agricultural workers on organic agriculture through national campaign for OA
     training financed from the EU.

    training and awareness campaigns.

    awareness campaigns to preserve the environment and also by registering FAODA for a
    group of organic farms in regions bordering natural protected area of Wadi El Rayan.

6- Conduct cooperation protocol between the FAODA and the Egyptian Environmental
