During the field visit‚ it was able to observed that:
Rice is being harvested – it seems that the yield is good.
Cassava: majority of the farmers in the village planted cassava for commercial purpose. Yield is about 10 tons per ha. The yield is more than ten tons in some places thanks to good soil fertility, proper planting practices and favorable climate condition.
Natural Forest: some areas of the natural forest areas are cleared for planting cash crops, such as cassava, cashew, etc. Some dense forest still exist on the mountain. There are some wildlife, but the forest is very important to ensure that wildlife will be sustainable in the future
