In another victory for the Cambodian agricultural sector, Kratie’s farmers saw a success and great crop yield due to their application of greenhouse farming techniques.
Farmers in Kratie successfully cultivated cauliflowers and cabbages in their greenhouses in a bid to increase crop yield and improve the quality of their crops. Farmers touted the benefits of greenhouse farming such as the reduced use of fertilizers, the ability to grow crops without regard of the season, and the ease of growing crops.
