India-based Indofil Philippines Inc. plans to widen the reach of its education campaign on agrochemical pest control to local farmers to help them boost their harvests.

As a member of Crop Protection Association of the Philippines, he said in the Daily Tribune Straight Talk show Indofil is working with the Department of Agriculture to reach more farmers for education on the agrochemical technology.

“We are all academics and our main job is to pass on information or the research done by local Filipinos, as well as the researchers abroad, to the farmers.”

While Indofil Philippines built its office here just in 2018, its researchers from distributors have been studying local agriculture for 24 years.
This is to adapt agrochemical technology to the Philippine setting while harnessing relevant data from India and other parts of the world.
