Farmer Field School

Under the FAO Regional Integrated Pest Management IPM Program in the Near East, Georges N. Frem Foundation implemented a Farmers’ Field School (FFS) for Apples in Mejdel Akoura (Jbeil Caza) throughout the growing season of 2009 focused on teaching Integrated Production and Protection Management (IPPM) techniques to 15 farmers through a participatory approach. The GNFF team implemented 19 FFS workshops covering all pre and post biological problems on apples in Mejdel Akoura which contributed towards the objective of assisting farmers to adopt IPPM thus reducing pesticide use to protect their environment and consumers.
