Free Book on Sustainable Agriculture

The Philippine Rural Reconstruction Movement (PRRM) recently launched "Likas-kaya at organikong pagsasaka ng palay" by Oscar B. Zamora, a free book [197 p.] on sustainable rice production and organic farming during the Go-Organic! Philippines Forum. Click here to view/download a pdf copy of the book.

As librarians, we could help propagate sustainable agriculture and environmentally sound agricultural technologies by simply making this free book freely available to our users and other stakeholders in our agricultural community. By helping in the mass dissemination of this publication, we could somehow claim that our profession was instrumental in winning the war of food sufficiency and food security for our country.

This publication was "book reviewed" by Ma. Ceres P. Doyo in her Philippine Daily Inquirer Human Face column of May 21, 2009.
