DA distributes vegetable seeds to cutflower growers

March 14, 2021 Uncategorized

LA TRINIDAD, Benguet, Apr. 26(PIA) – The Department of Agriculture –Cordillera extends  initial assistance to  cutflower growers in the municipality to help them cope with the effects of the  enhanced community quarantine.

DA Cordillera Regional Director Cameron Odsey on Thursday  turned over assorted vegetable seeds  amounting to almost  P1.2 million  to La Trinidad Mayor Romeo Salda and barangay captains of cut flower producing barangays in  the municipality.

Farmers in barangays Bahong, Alno, Alapang, Beckel, Bineng, Lubas, and Ambiong will receive six kinds of vegetable seeds in the package  like  scorpio cabbage, Chinese cabbage, bell pepper, broccoli, blue pole beans, and iceberg lettuce.

The cut flower industry is among the heavily affected businesses  by  the ECQ . Cut flowers are not considered essential goods, thus, are not allowed for transport and trading as per the marketing restrictions  of the ECQ which started last March 17.

 After the turnover at the municipal hall, the Odsey and Salda  proceeded to barangay Alapang to distribute the vegetable seedlings to some of the affected farmers.(JDP/RMC-PIA CAR)
