La Trinidad Mayor Romeo Salda called on farmers to raise the level of organic farming in the province.
The Benguet politiko said raising the level of organic farming will enable them to comply with the stringent market standards nowadays.
Salda made the remark following his official working visit to Japan.
“We need to improve on our post-harvest systems for us to be able to realize the gains of our efforts to perk up our agriculture industry,” he said.
“We also need the cooperation of everyone for us to elevate the practice of organic farming to a higher level that will showcase a semblance of improvement,” Salda added.
