13 Aug Tremendous Support from the DA Family
Over the past months, Vicky Garcia has been networking with many people within the Department of Agriculture to secure assistance for the Cordillera terrace farmers. Terrace farmers of native rice varieties are now included in the DA sponsored PalayCheck program for yield improvement, as well as trainings on the Natural Farming System sponsored by the DA’s Agriculture Training Institute (ATI).
In a recent meeting on August 09, 2009 in Baguio City with the Director Cesar Rodriguez, Department of Agriculture-Cordillera Administrative Region-Regional Field Unit (DA-CAR_RFU), Director Rodriguez reiterated his support for the Cordillera Heirloom Rice Project.
