The project funded under Bayanihan 2 of the High-Value Crops Development Program (HVCDP) of DA covers two components: vegetable seed production of pinakbet commodities (P2 million) and planting material production of different durian varieties (P3 million).

DA-10 Regional Executive Director Carlene C. Collado said the project intends for productivity enhancement of the farmers in the region.

A seed processing facility will be established that will produce 400 kilograms of pinakbet seeds or 80 kilograms each of ampalaya, squash, okra, string beans, and eggplant commodities.

A fruit nursery will also be established for 50,000 hills of grafted planting materials of different durian varieties for distribution to farmers and other stakeholders of the region.
