Ifugao to venture in ube yam production

LAGAWE, Ifugao, July 26 (PIA)- - The province may  soon embark in purple ube yam production after about  100 root crops farmers of the province attended an Investment Forum  conducted by the Department of Agriculture-Cordillera Administrative Region (DA_CAR) at the Bahawit Nursery here.


The forum aimed to encourage farmers to increase their ube and other roots crops production by presenting the investment opportunities of these commodities and to scout for places in the different municipalities where ube can possibly be grown for local and commercial purposes.

The farmers were convinced with the business and economic promises of ube and other root productions in the province especially with the identified markets and business opportunities for these products that they were challenged to organize and embark in this enterprise so that they can improve their methods of production for a higher yield and output.
