SP okay’s road map for corn, cassava

LINGAYEN–The Sangguniang Panlalawigan (SP) endorsed the corn and cassava road map of Pangasinan for 2017 – 2022 as a guide for the production of the two commodities in the next five years.

Board Member Liberato Villegas, author of the resolution, said it will ensure the increase and sustainability of the production and quality output, and profitability of farmers.

The road map, jointly formulated by the Department of Agriculture and the Provincial Agriculture Office (PAO) in collaboration with municipal and city agriculture officers, has identified major interventions to be undertaken to sustain the production of these two agricultural commodities.

These include production support, post-harvest facility needs and extension support services in order to enhance the technical capability of corn and cassava farmers for global competitiveness and sustainable development of the corn and cassava industry.

Dalisay Moya, provincial agriculturist, said Pangasinan received the National Quality Corn Achievement Award in 2015, 2013 and 2012.

She said many farmers are planting cassava not only for food but also as chief ingredient for animal feeds. (Leonardo Micua)
