South Korea funds smart greenhouses in the Philippines

The Department of Agriculture of the Philippines has received from the South Korean government a grant to be used in beefing up smart greenhouse projects that will improve domestic tomato production.

Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel F. Pińol said the agency signed a memorandum of agreement with the Korea Agency for Education, Promotion and Information Service in Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries (EPIS) for a $2.43 million grant.

The first 18 K-Smart Greenhouses will be put up in Benguet Province to produce high value vegetables, especially tomatoes.

The deal comes after President Rodrigo R. Duterte’s visit last month to South Korea where he held bilateral talks with President Moon Jae-in.

In that meeting, the DA signed a P28-billion supply contract with South Korean supermarket chain, Emart. The supermarket will be supplied various fruits over the next three years.
