Cricket farming in Cambodia: a sustainable source of supplementary nutrition and income26 Sep 2013

On the morning of 20 September, Mr Hen Nang and Mr Chrat Savat knocked on the door of the Annâdya Project Office – a SATNET associate based in Banlung, Cambodia. The two poor farmers had come from Katieng village in Lumphat district 35 km away, spending more than one-third of their daily income of $4 on motorbike fuel, to learn about the edible cricket breeding programme started by Annâdya in several other villages. Deciding not to wait for project extension staff to visit them, the two went to Banlung as they were keen to try cricket breeding to supplement their household diets and incomes and inspire others in their village to do the same.
