ASSCAT, DA PARTNER FOR MALUNGGAY PROJECT
THE AGUSAN del Sur State College of Agriculture and Technology and the Department of Agriculture partnered to establish a sustainable malunggay farm to help farmers in the area.
ASSCAT said that it tied up with the DA-Caraga’s High-Value Crops Development Program for the “Sustainable Organic Production of Malunggay Tree” project.
The project aims to produce 15,000 seedlings to boost malunggay leaf production in the province.
The seedlings that will be produced will be divided between farmers association and the college — 10,000 to farmers and 5,000 for the college.
The project is funded under the Bayanihan 2 law.
ASSCAT President Joy Capistrano led the project’s launching ceremony last Friday.
