Farming is a risky job. There are many unexpected things that might happen throughout the course of your food production venture. Seeds didn’t sprout. Plants devastated by typhoon and pests. Rainfall became scarce. Then the expected yield was never realized. The worst case, you may never get your capital back and your are left crying in the corner.
Yes, farming is risky but there are ways to minimize the chance of lost. Use a hybrid and high yielding variety. Don’t plant during typhoon season. Keep up to date on latest cultural practices and pest & diseases preventing and fighting techniques. Provide a good irrigation. And, the uncommon thing in agricultural practice, getting a crop insurance. Apply for a crop insurance from Philippine Crop Insurance Corporation (PCIC).
