A major flaw for the development of rural production is the lack of technicians to guide them on production technology. Reasons why the Lanja Miakatra association trains farmers in their region.

Papa Bio has already discussed the developments that have resulted from his research and improvements in vermicompost. He is still not satisfied, but there are still new ideas and new benefits to using vermicompost. Worm manure, said Ranaivoarison Basile, fights pests that damage crops, ensuring increased yields. The use of worm manure is also frost resistant in very cold regions.

All of this, says Papa Bio, farmers should know about it, but a problem in the country is the lack of technicians to share it. Reasons why the Lanja Miakatra Association shares its experience and knowledge with the rural population. Only the use of organic technology can guarantee the development of the agriculture sector in Madagascar.

Mr. Rakoto Jean Pierre, educator and development actor, also agrees. He has written many books on how to move forward in development.
