Mighty Corporation in Efforts to Replace Chemical-Based Pesticides with Eco-Friendly Ones
Mighty Corp. shows their concern for the environment as they urge local farmers to use alternative pesticides in their plantations.
If followed rigorously, this will not only result in a healthier environment, but will also yield greater income for the local farmers.
This will also help cease the reliance local farmers on chemical-based pesticides and discover other ways to take care of their harvests.
According to the vice president and spokesperson of Mighty Corp., this was part of the company’s corporate social responsibility thrust. He also added that more and more local farmers are shifting from chemical-based pesticides to organic-based ones, or a combination of both.
“This trend should be encouraged,” the vice president added.
Mighty Corp. has been coordinating with the National Tobacco Administration (NTA), Fertilizer and Pesticide Authority (FPA) of the Department of Agriculture (DA) and University of the Philippines in Los Baños, Laguna (UPLB) for this cause.
