Mr Bounmy, Board of Vientiane Organic Market Committees
“I have learned how to make organic fertilizer with the PROFIL project study tour. After returning home, I realized that I didn’t need to buy the expensive chemical fertilizer. I started produce and use the compost and the Bio Extract in my vegetable garden. I noticed that the quality of the soil is improved when I switched to organic fertilizer. My vegetable are sold to the Vientiane Organic market, my income from the vegetable production is more than 50 million kip a year.
Future perspectives: The group covers 8 villages of four districts of Vientiane Capital (Saysettha, Sikhottabong, Sisattanak and Xaythany district), which includes 38 households and 20.86 ha of organic land. Around 221 tons of organic vegetables are produced annually. Currently, the group plans to have new members in Nonetae villages (8 to 10 farmers).
