Mankayan Mayor Frenzel Ayong said the municipal government is planning to buy properties in the town that will be used for two demonstration farms.
The demonstration farms will be for highland vegetables and heirloom rice.
Ayong said the project aims to improve the productivity of local farmers.
He said the demo farm for highland vegetables will be located in Balili while they are searching for a suitable area in the lower barangays for the heirloom rice demo farm.
“We value the important contributions of the town’s agriculture sector in providing sustainable livelihood to our constituents and the economic activities of the people in the different barangays, thus, the same must be brought to a higher level with the putting in place of the demonstration farms,” Ayong said.
