Bauko Mayor Abraham Akilit is pushing for the expansion of the municipality’s integrated agriculture area development site.
The Mountain Province politiko said the integrated agriculture development sites in Tapapan and Guinzadan intersperse agro-forestry plants with grassy areas.
Akilit said this shows farmers can maximize pasture lands in Bauko.
He also said the municipal government hired a full-time agriculturist so that farmers will conform with organic farming standards.
“We are elated that a good number of farmers were immediately convinced with the idea that is why we were able to push through with the project and we hope that we will able to replicate it in other barangays with vast tracks of land that could be converted to similar agro-forestry areas,” Akilit said.#
