Organic Paddy

Organic paddy farming has been identified as a new key economic activity for NCER. This is in response to increasing global demand for organic produce which offers a higher income margin to farmers.

 

NCIA will establish a Centre of Excellence (COE) in Kedah to provide integrated organic training for potential farmers. The COE has been endorsed by the Kedah state government and is known as Institut Pengurusan Pertanian Organik Bersepadu Kedah Darul Aman (INSPEK). Upon graduation, INSPEK trainees will be well-equipped with the required skills to run their own satellite integrated mixed organic farms.

 

This initiative is currently being developed in collaboration with a potential Anchor Company. Once implemented, NCIA will work closely with the Anchor Company to identify and develop new satellite farms within NCER, which will create new entrepreneurs and job opportunities in this industry.
