Monitoring and instructions for care of Homalomena occulta L. Schott under the natural forest canopy
On August 23, consultants from the Center for Rural Development in Central Vietnam (CRD) monitored and instructed the forest management and protection groups 1 and 3 of Mu Nu Ta Ra village to take care of the Homalomena occulta L. Schott in the community forest area in Huong Nguyen commune, A Luoi district, Thua Thien Hue province.
This is the second time of monitoring and taking care of Homalomena occulta L. Schott since the last March and April. So far, Homalomena occulta L. Schott under the forest canopy has grown well despite the prolonged dry weather.
At this time, the CRD counselors also instructed farmers care techniques after planting e.g., clearing liana and shrubs. After clearance, they used A-ving (a soil preparation tool of Co Tu compatriots) to make soil loose to prevent inundation when the rainy season is coming.
It was sponsored by Small Grants Programme – Global Environment Fund (GEF SGP), the United Nations Development Program and implemented by the People’s Committee of Huong Nguyen commune with the coordination of Center for Rural Development in Central Vietnam (CRD) and A Luoi district Youth Union.
