Garlic Becoming Potential Cash Crop for Mondulkiri

AKP Phnom Penh, Garlic is becoming another potential cash crop for Cambodia’s north-eastern province of Mondulkiri – thanks to remarkable success of a pioneer farmer.

The good news was shared recently in a Facebook post by the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries H.E. Veng Sakhon.

According to the post, the farmer Mr. Phin Phorn residing in Doh Kramom village, Sangkat Sokdom in Sen Monorom city of the province has achieved abundant harvest following a 3-month growing of the garlic.

While the quantity was huge, the quality is very safe for consumers as it is an organic product and the demand in the domestic markets for it is very high.

The idea of garlic farming in Mondulkiri began with the minister and his team who distributed garlic seeds to some selected farmers in the province as a piloting back in December 2020.

With the satisfactory results, the provincial authority is expected to expand garlic farming and make it another cash crop for the locals in the near future.
