Philippines: Government to help transport & sell tomatoes from Cordillera

The Department of Agriculture of the Philippines will coordinate with local governments in the Cordillera Administrative Region to help transport and market the tomatoes of farmers who have complained of oversupply and lack of buyers.  

The DA’s office in the highland region, in a statement on Wednesday, said two groups have already committed to buying some of the supply next week while the agency’s Agribusiness and Marketing Assistance Service will identify more markets. 

Ifugao Provincial Agriculturist Domingo B. Mariano said the tomatoes grown by Enza Aguinao, one of the affected farmers, were unsold as a result of the “non-arrival of buyers from the National Capital Region (NCR) and Central Luzon.”
