On Thursday, 8.1-tons of high value crops from Miarayon Region of Talakag, Bukidnon arrived at BPI Compound for the agriculture department’s two-day “TienDA Gulay Para sa Masa” on September 21 to 22.

These include the very expensive chilli, potato, carrots, cabbage, sayote, Chinese cabbage, and raddish.

The vegetables will be sold half their commercial prices by Mindanao farmers who are facing difficulty in marketing them.

According to Agriculture Secretary Manny Piñol, the Agricultural Credit Policy Council (ACPC) granted an initial P20-M loan to the farmers’ association to allow its members to purchase the products and market them in Metro Manila.
