The application of subsidy for the Friendly Farming Value-added Promotion Plan of Indigenous Peoples is divided into Transforming Type and Value-added Type. The Transforming Type is for those who belong to the traditional agriculture but have will to participate in the friendly farming like organic agriculture, natural agriculture or pesticide-free agriculture; Value-added Type is for those who have already engaged in friendly farming and aim at the secondary processing, the tertiary marketing or the research and development of facility and technology.
