Grow PNG Project
SERACS Ltd was engaged by Grow PNG Ltd to conduct a pilot training on the Land Access Guide (LAG) with the selected oil palm farmers. One week training was held in Mutzing Station from 25th to 27th August 2021. Total of 34 participants from the 18 ILGs within Umi Atzera LLG attended this pilot training. The aim of the LAG pilot training is to test out the guide and develop a training module that can be used in other trainings with the farmers within Markham Valley. The Grow PNG’s long term goal is to ensure that 90% of arable land in Markham Valley is properly released for agribusiness activities and turn Markham Valley to be a food bowl for Papua New Guinea.
