HOW TO EASILY SWITCH TO ORGANIC FARMING SYSTEM WITH THE HIGHEST QUALITY AND QUANTITY YIELD?
AUTHENTIC organic agriculture is the key to unlocking soils’ highest potential with the use of oxidized lignite (Leonardite). It was named after the geologist discoverer Dr. Leonard, hence Leonardite. It is classified as a super compost as it was underneath the ground for thousands of years when it was formed. In comparison with a man-made compost which takes months, what makes super compost “super” is due to the length of time it takes for nature ASEAN Agri-Food Trade, 2010 and 2016 Country

Lignite are complex natural organic compounds that are formed in the soils from plant and animal residues by a process of humification. It is a complex aggregate of brown to dark colored amorphous substances which have originated from the decomposition of plant and animal residues by microorganisms. It contains nutrients such as nitrates, potassium, zinc, phosphates and copper that plants need to be healthy and resilient, and without which the plants will not flourish. Levers in agri development. Why do nations succeed in agriculture while others do not? Here are some strategic factors:
• Institutions. The quality of governance, meritocratic civil service, robustness of research and extension, and political stability. • Policies on land access, single-crop focus, and infrastructure investments. • Natural endowment. The optimal utilization of land, water, and sea resources. The Philippines is behind in aquaculture and tree crops development
The comparative analytics shows that the Philippines has to work doubletime and learn hard lessons from its ASEAN peers. Poverty reduction calls for broad-based, market-led development. Job creation is key. The rural sector is in dire need of private investments and management skills.
