Farmers from the Independent Farmers Association are participating in a three-day workshop, organized by the United Nations Development Program (UNDP), the Agriculture Ministry and Asian Agri palm oil group, aimed at helping them improve production.

Riau Agriculture Agency development division head Muhadi, said the workshop, which began Tuesday, would feature sessions on legality and plantation management, environmental management and farmer organizations.

'€œThe certification is designed to help plantation workers and owners improve the quality of their produce,'€ he said, adding that those who attended the workshop would receive guidance in implementing what they had learned during the sessions.

'€œThere will also be an audit, and if they are successful, they will be the first independent farmers in Indonesia to receive certification,'€ he said.
