La Trinidad Mayor Romeo Salda said the municipal government is seeking to import tissue culture equipment for white strawberries.
The Benguet politiko said farmers needs runners for Snow White strawberry varieties in order to propagate them.
But Salda explained that the Benguet State University does not have the appropriate equipment for the process.
He said some individuals and groups have expressed interest in helping the municipal government in the importation of the equipment.
“We are working on some options to make sure there will be available runners of the Chinese strawberry varieties for interested farmers to experiment on their suitability in the strawberry farms so that the local government can consider the same for long-term distribution,” Salda said.
