This presentation discusses the work and philosophy of TMPEGS, a partner organization for the SANREM CRSP LTRA (Long-term research activity) 5. A Goal of LTRA-5’s work with vegetable and agroforestry production in Vietnam, Indonesia, and the Philippines is to enhance vegetable-tree complementarity. Factors that can increase vegetable-tree complementarity include use of indigenous vegetables and drip irrigation. Also discussed are cover crops and reduced tillage, home gardens and commercial production, and termite control and weed management.
