The use of chemical-based pesticides has been common in the fields of our country. Not only is this harmful for the environment, local farmers also lose loads of income by using these kinds of pesticides.
In order to decrease the reliance of farmers on chemical-based pesticides, Mighty Corp. urges local tobacco farmers to use organic-based pesticides. According to the company, this will substantially increase the income of local tobacco farmers while also helping save the environment.
Statistics show that more and more farmers are leaning towards the use of organic-based pesticides than chemical-based ones.
The company is continually cooperating with the National Tobacco Administration (NTA), Fertilizer and Pesticide Authority (FPA) of the Department of Agriculture (DA) and University of the Philippines in Los Baños, Laguna (UPLB) to support this cause.
