The celebration will serve as a venue to recognize the high value crops farmers and to support them particularly the small stakeholders for more livelihood and for direct linkage of their products to the buyers. It also aims to encourage appreciation and preservation of indigenous high value crops.
This event also seeks to urge more Filipinos engage in the production, processing, and/or consumption of high value crops.
Here in Davao region, activities would include Webinars on Urban Vegetable Gardening and Mushroom Production via Agri Info Davao Fb Page. The DA-HVCDP XI Team would also intensify seeds distribution and other farm inputs.
The DA-XI Info team will also publish daily success stories of HVC farmers highlighting the technology and good agricultural practices worth emulating to inspire others to engage in high value crops production and processing. | via Celso Campos Vergara, RAFIS11
