Collado continues the provision of assorted vegetable seeds to the staff of the Provincial Agriculture’s Office (PAGRO) of Misamis Oriental as part of its efforts to strengthen food availability and affordability, March 3.
DA-10 Regional Technical Director for Operations Carlota S. Madriaga and High-Value Crops Development Program focal person Kersten S. Pagalan gave PAGRO-MisOr Agricultural Technologist Benjamin C. Boston, Jr., 75 packets of vegetable seeds that are often used in chop suey, garden salad, and pinakbet.
