WASHINGTON DC – The Cambodian Center for Study and Development in Agriculture has been recognized for its contributions to Cambodians by the a group of experts at Food Tank.
The US-based think tank said the center, known in Cambodia as Cedac, was responsible for higher yields in Cambodian agriculture production through its research. It put Cedac on a list of countries that are improving the global food system.
Cedac works through a network of farmers to apply what is called the System of Rice Intensification, which seeks to boost yields while reducing the use of chemicals. It also supports ecological chicken farming, pig raising, home gardening, aquaculture, composting, and multi-purpose farming.
