Syahruni: Increasing women's potential in shrimp farming
Syahruni is a seasoned farmer from Cengkong, Pinrang. She runs a polyculture farm of shrimp and milkfish with her family. Through her father being a farmer, she was immersed in farming practices at a young age. Today, she takes on a greater role in managing the farm, from regular water quality checks to organic feeding, ensuring optimal shrimp growth and production.
Given her background and involvement in improvement programs, it has been easier for Syahruni to handle and implement best farming practices into her work.
While Hasmia doesn't consider shrimp farming particularly difficult, she is able to rely upon her neighbours and community groups for support when faced with challenges.
For Hasmia and many others, practical and accessible place-based improvement solutions support farmers like her with sustainable farming practices.
