It's a jam-pack training on Bulb Onion & Garlic Farming at the Davao City School for the Blind, Talomo, Davao City.
"Nakurat ko nga ingon ani mo ka daghan (I'm surprised that you are this huge)," says DA Secretary Manny Piñol while encouraging participants to intensify bulb onion and garlic production here in Mindanao.
While he says onion and garlic production in Mindanao will help reduce importation he also warns farmers to consider their type of soil and climate as not all areas are suitable for this crop.
The training and demo farm is a partnership between DA and the private corporation to showcase bulb onion and garlic production technology.
Since it was established at the school and rehab center for the visually impaired the demo farm is also a way of helping the differently-abled to live productive lives. | via Noel Provido, RAFIS11
