Expect expensive veggies: P28M in Cordillera vegetable damaged

  • by

BAGUIO, Philippines  Expect your Baguio veggies to be pricier, even if initial reports showed that the damage in the farms in Benguet because of the heightened monsoon rains last weekend was not as extensive as predicted.

Reports from the Department of Agriculture-Cordillera showed that agricultural damage amounted to P28.364 million. Of these, P17.4 M came from crops in Mountain Province, Abra, and Baguio City.

Not included was the damage of crops in Benguet (except for Itogon, which reported P193,376 damage), which is considered the Salad Bowl of the Country because majority of highland vegetables are produced here.
