Helping Farmers Succeed
There are seven billion people on this beautiful planet of ours, and one of the things we all have in common is that we need a daily meal, it’s a basic need. Some people have sufficient food, whereas others don’t have enough or even lack entirely. Luckily, The Total Integrated Programs and Services (TIPS) ,is working around the clock, doing whatever it takes to help parents feed their children through farming training, exposure to modern agricultural innovations and small business investments. When you donate money to T.I.P.S. you support our lifesaving work. Thank you for your generous support.
Food is a basic need for us all. Sadly, access to it is not always guaranteed. At Total Integrated Programs & Services, we try to scale all progress in the fight against hunger and poverty to help people in need. Today, we’re steadfast in our work trying to improve the broken food systems.
By doing this, we hope more people become aware of the impactful work we do to help curb the big issue of food shortage. Through efforts directed towards improving agriculture and training people in efficient agricultural practices, enabling people to provide for themselves in a sustainable way. Improving agriculture is our priority. The communities we are impacting are a reminder of how important the work we are doing is.
Traditional vs Modern Agriculture
Traditional farming adheres to the traditional methods of agriculture. On the other hand, modern farming experiments with the implementation of advanced technology in the field of agriculture. This is the main difference between these two approaches to agriculture.
Some of the differences between traditional and modern agriculture are that modern agriculture uses advanced technology, it is less labor intensive than traditional agriculture, and the yield quantity is larger.
Modern agriculture uses advanced technology, it is less labor intensive than traditional agriculture, and the yield quantity is larger because there is a focus on maximizing production and maintaining a consistent quality.
Modern agriculture uses advanced technology , such as plant breeding techniques and pesticides. Seeds that are hybrids may be used and other gene editing techniques applied.
Modern agriculture is less labor intensive than traditional agriculture because there is a greater reliance on machinery . This is in terms of both harvesting and growing the plants but also in cases where one is applying fertilizers and pesticides.
Advantages of Modern Agriculture
Production is greater in modern agriculture than traditional agriculture. There is usually an emphasis on producing consistent products with modern agriculture also. For example, a tomato that grew in an atypical shape may be tossed out rather than brought to market. Note that product quality is often higher in traditional agriculture.
Can buy an agricultural tool set for one household.
Can supply various types of grain, vegetable and fruit seeds and saplings to one household for one year.
Can provide one soil testing kit to a village, allowing them to improve crop quality and yields.
What happens when you help a farmer succeed? this video you see the opportunities, not just for the farmer, but also for their families, often improving their financial standing, health and educational prospects. But the impact goes much further than that. When you give a farmer tools to succeed, you can help grow prosperity in their community, and build a food system that can feed everyone, every day, everywhere—nutritiously and sustainably.
Agricultural Engine of Growth
The Total Integrated Programs and Services foundation is promoting sustainable agricultural development through the Agricultural Engine of Growth, T.I.P.S. works with Haitian farmers to increase agricultural production, modernize natural resource management and improve food security. To ensure agricultural products make it to market, T.I.P.S. works with farmers to reduce post-harvest losses and facilitates public-private partnerships.
The Agricultural Engine of Growth objectives are similar in that they all emphasize capacity building. All are responsive to local needs, are staffed almost entirely by Haitians, and are designed to support and strengthen the government’s effectiveness. By involving affected communities in their own recovery and rebuilding, our models have produced sustained impact positive change that lasts long after you make a donation.
