Benguet assures steady supply of vegetables
by Susan Aro / PIA

LA TRININDAD, Benguet – The Office of the Provincial Agriculturist (OPAG) allayed fears on the possible shortage of vegetables due to the impact of typhoons Pedring and Quiel.

Provincial Agriculturist Lolita Bentres admitted there were damages on standing crops such as snap beans, garden pea, cucumber, lettuce, and pepper, particularly the ones at the vegetative stage.

There was undeniably a noted upsurge of prices of the said vegetable produce in the market, Bentres added.

On the advice of Gov. Nestor Fongwan, the OPAG carried out the monitoring of the flow of vegetables at the La Trinidad Trading Post.

Based on the data gathered, Bentres said that of the regular 39 trucks daily transporting vegetables outside of the province, there are 36 trucks that continue to deliver vegetable produce to Metro Manila area.

Bentres admitted the gap but the impact is insignificant and assured that the province will pick up in a week or two and prizes may soon stabilize due to the continuous planting and harvesting of farmers.

Farmers continue to till their farm lots and replace what have been damaged, she said. For farmers who were able to borrow from creditors or those who have capital, they immediately replanted to be able to recoup with their losses and expenses, said Bentres.
