Farming without pesticides


GEORGE TOWN: Food production has one of the biggest effects on the environment, and the Pesticide Action Network Asia and the Pacific (Panap) is starting a “multiversity” to mark World Environment Day today and to show farmers how to avoid using pesticides.

Dubbed the International Peo­ple’s Agroecology Multiversity, the movement comprises 10 field-learning sites in Asia and one in Africa which farmers can visit to see how it is done.
