To the Valued Reader:
Many of these “How To” series were originally written in the 1970’s by Mr. Harold R.
Watson, Dr. Warlit
o A. Laquihon and other MBRLC staff. They have served a generationof Filipino farmers in giving useful and practical information on farming systems for the
small farm family.
Interestingly enough, the demand for this type of information has only grown t
years. This revised and updated version of the “How To” series is an attempt to continuein the tradition of giving simple information, concepts and principles to small farmers,students and extension workers involved in growing vegetable and fr
uit crops, and in
raising poultry and livestock
