International Nature Farming Research Center (INFRC)
Kyusei Nature Farming Center
Global Expansion of Nature Farming
We promote Nature Farming through the Asia Pacific Natural Agriculture Network (APNAN) which is based in Bangkok, Thailand. APNAN is an NGO founded in 1989 to spread Nature Farming and the technology of Effective Microorganisms (EM) in the Asia Pacific region. INFRC held 7 international conferences on Kyusei Nature Farming in 6 continents in order to introduce and spread Nature Farming in the world. INFRC has also participated in the IFOAM (International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements) conferences to present research papers, country reports, etc. on Nature Farming.
INFRC supports APNAN for:
- Human Resources Development by Sponsoring Technical Workshops and Seminars.
- Technical Assistance provided to Southeast Asia and Neighboring Nations.
