TOF for Agroprocessors, 9 - 14 June 2015, Lampung, South Sumatra, Indonesia
Training of facilitators (TOF) comprising of agro - processors in Lampung, South Sumatra, Indonesia

The training of facilitators (TOF) comprising of agro - processors was held in Lampung, South Sumatra from 9 - 14 June, 2015. The training was held at 3 locations: Padang Pariaman, Pasaman Barat and Lima Puluh Kota & Payakumbuh.

There were 20 participants in location 1 & 3 and 25 in location 2 (Pasaman Barat). The trainers were from ICCRI and Crop Life Indonesia with Jeremy from CABI overseeing the session.

Feedback from the participants were positive with many commenting that training courses were rare in these parts. Some of the materials presented were too technical but the participants were enthusiastic.

Challenges include trying to educate farmers and growers on active ingredients in pesticides and their associated chemical groupings. Most can only identify with commercials names and labels of pesticides. However the effort is worth it as it is important to educate farmers and growers on the proper and correct usage of pesticides and management of resistance to pesticides from incorrect usage.
