- Farmer From Kampung Semadang
- Farming as his hobby
- Determined and has established a proper plantation for his farming purposes
Living in Kampung Semadang, farming started out as a hobby for Mr Michael, and it became a part of his life. Mr Michael is determined and has established a proper plantation for his farming purposes. A career in agriculture is more than just a job; it is a way of life that agriculturalists love.
Mr. Michael's Plantside
Currently, Mr Michael is still processing the land opening by open burning and slashing out the necessaries. He is still planning on crop rotation but is looking forward to plant lemon and citrus depending on the market demand. The terrain of his farm would be hilly. Mr Michael plants banana, tapioca, durian, and papaya. He claimed that weevil pests have been observed around the banana, but the problem is not that severe. The grubs or larvae do the damage. They bore into the form below ground to feed. When there are many weevils, tunnels occur throughout the corm, and into the pseudo-stem.
Breed Tilapia and Sultan
He owns a few fishponds and will make tilapia and sultan as a business. Mr Michael is excited in joining contract farming as he is optimistic about the possibility of branching out to new audiences, considering the rising demand of aware customers.
Little By Little, Little Becomes A lot
“Cultivators of the earth are the most valuable citizens. They are the most vigorous, the most independent, the most virtuous, and they are tied to their country and wedded to its liberty and interests by the most lasting bonds.” ― Thomas Jefferson.
