Proceedings of PIFON’s training on technologies supporting off-season vegetable production

Growing vegetables and crops during the off-season (between October and March) has been a major issue for many farmers across the Pacific region.  It is in these off-season months, the production of temperate vegetables such as tomatoes, capsicum, English cabbage, lettuces, watermelon and such are strongly hampered by high rainfall and high temperatures.

At a regional consultation in the Western Division, Fiji from June 01 – 05 2015, hosted by PIFON, participants from PNG, Tonga, Vanuatu, Solomon Islands, Samoa and Fiji gathered to exchange and learn new methods in overcoming off-season constraints.

The training workshop was funded by the European Union (EU) through the Secretariat of the Pacific Community (SPC) implemented Pacific Agriculture Policy Project (PAPP).
