BORONGAN CITY, April 27, 2017—The provincial office of agricultural services (OPAS) calls on farmers interested in growing cacao and coffee plants.

Under the Department of Agriculture’s High Value Crops Development Program, would-be cacao and coffee farmers in the province will receive free plants and training.

Interested farmers need to have at least half a hectare of land where the plants will be grown and will then need to submit a letter of intent to OPAS.

According to provincial agriculturist Dr. Deogracias Paano, the government has allocated P2M for the program. (Medora NB Quirante / Este News)
