Fe, South Upi, Maguindanao. The Tedurays call their farming system ‘sulagad’ – traditional form of farming with biodiversity as cornerstone to make their farms more resilient and ensure continued source of food for the family. Through the years the sulagad farming practice has been disappearing since they were introduced to new farming technology, especially the use of GMO corn. Tedurays are finding it challenging to transition with their piled up debts and industry pressure for GMO corn farming.Locations:Maguindanao-Mindanao-Philippines-Southeast AsiaDate:7 May, 2016Credit:© Veejay Villafranca / GreenpeaceMaximum size:4096px X 2731pxKeywords:Climate change impacts-Day-Drought-El Nino-Farmers-Farms-Food for Life (campaign title)-Indigenous People-Indoors-KWCI (GPI)-Local population-Maize-People-Rural scenes-SAGE (campaign title)-Small group of peopleShoot:El Niño Impacts Documentation in Mindanao PhilippinesGreenpeace documented the severity and extent of damage of the strong El Niño that affects several provinces in Mindanao, south of the Philippines.Greenpeace is demanding the Philippine government to shift towards ecological agriculture, which is not only safe and sustainable, but also a system that empowers our farmers, and also provides incentives to farmers who are into ecological agriculture, for producing safe and nutritious food and implements environment friendly agriculture technologies and practices.
