Mr. Lazaro Gacusan, a farmer-partner of the CLSU Techno Village Development Program (TVDP) for Special Purpose Rice, reaped a bountiful harvest in his try on March 23, 2022.

A resident of Brgy. Cabisuculan, Science City of Muñoz, Nueva Ecija, Mr. Gacusan, harvested 66 cavans from his 7000 square meter farm lot using the CLS2 variety developed by the University Research Center (URC). From this harvest, 50 cavans were sold at P25.00/kg which gave him a total net income of P39,764.00, 30% higher than planting inbred varieties.

The TVDP involves marketing intervention by implementing the clustering approach to agro-enterprise development for small farmers.

The same clustering was organized in Talavera TVDP.
