Legacy Project

Smallholder Coconut Farmer Empowerment Project 2

The cultivation of coconuts, especially for use in coconut oil, has been an important source of income for Indonesia’s small farmers. Yet a host of factors — including a failure to replace old trees with new seedlings and a lack of effective pest management — has led to reduced production in the country’s South Minahasa Regency. By distributing high-quality seedlings and training smallholders in effective agricultural techniques, this program seeks to lift the production and incomes of farmers in the region.
