Benguet Governor Melchor Diclas said he is eyeing the establishment of a vegetable processing facility in the Buguias campus of the Benguet State University (BSU).
The Benguet politiko’s proposed project comes after the Department of Agriculture alloted P20 million for a vegetable processing facility at BSU’s La Trinidad campus.
Diclas said the construction of the vegetable processing facilities will improve research projects in the province.
“If the processing facility at BSU-La Trinidad is successful, it could be expanded to other parts of Benguet such as in Mankayan, Buguias, Kibungan Bakun, and Kabayan, which are near each other,” he said.
Diclas said he has already talked to DA Secretary William Dar about his proposed project.
