NV farmers receive storage facility
The Department of Agriculture (DA) has officially handed over on December 9, 2022 a P20M Cold Storage Facility, along with 92 palettes and 110 plastic crates, to a farmers’ association in Aritao, Nueva Vizcaya.
This high-value crop facility has a capacity of about 10,000 bags of onion, garlic, and ginger.
With this DA project, the income of the producers in the area is expected to increase as a consequence of the prolonged shelf life of their highly perishable crops.
According to regional officials of the DA, one more facility is expected to rise next year.
