DA Secretary Emmanuel Piñol proposes to give rewards and incentives to farmers advocating organic farming. Speaking during the 2017 Nat'l Organic Agri Congress in Cagayan de Oro, Piñol assured the organic farmers that DA will provide the inputs needed. He reiterated that DA provides support in technology transfer, financing and marketing of their organic products. He also underscored that the rise of organic products is timely since the world is craving for healthy foods. "I will not stop moving around the country and help our organic farmers. We will let them know that there is this gov't that touches their lives," Piñol adds.
