La Trinidad Mayor Romeo Salda said there will be no shortage of strawberries in next year’s Strawberry Festival.
The Benguet politiko earlier warned of strawberry supply shortage during the annual celebration because of the lack of runners
But Salda explained that farmers inside and outside La Trinidad were able to plant in time for the next harvest season.
“We are now working on a long-term plan so that we will sustain the stable supply of strawberries in time for its peak season, especially during the celebration of our Strawberry festival by March next year,” he said.
“There are negotiations that are underway for us to be provided with sufficient supply of strawberry runners that will be planted by our farmers in time for its production season,” Salda added.
