Philippines: High-tech greenhouse becomes tourist attraction

In one of his field visits, former Agriculture secretary William Dar was attracted to an unlikely destination in Tagaytay City.

Not quite on the radar, the Turbulent Drip Sales Inc. farm was not intended to become an agri-tourism site. The visit of the Agriculture secretary would be the farm's first famous stamp of approval, but for more technical reasons.

Established in 2012 by agricultural engineer Emie Siojo, the company behind the farm was meant to aid his ongoing greenhouse projects for the government and for developmental institutions such as the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), a grantee of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

Since then, Siojo has welcomed curious onlookers into his integrated demo farm, which features greenhouses, a quail and chicken coop, fishponds, an odorless piggery, and a flowering of vibrant and plump bell peppers which surround his residence that doubles as his office.
