PANGASINAN’S 3RD Umaani Agri-Industrial Trade Fair and Exhibit is on this week at the Provincial Agriculture Center in Tebag, Sta. Barbara, where local farm and fishery goods are featured. “We organized this especially for you, my fellow farmers, our fisherfolks and the stakeholders of the agriculture industry in the province,” Gov. Amado I. Espino, III said during the six-day event’s opening last March 11. Mr. Espino touted the “strong collaboration between the executive and legislative branches of the provincial government” for the sustained growth in the agricultural sector. Pangasinan has about 150,00 hectares of farmland. Its top five crops as of June 2018, based on Philippine Statistics Authority data, are rice, corn, coconut, mango, and banana. At the trade fair, awards were also given to outstanding sector workers as well as certificates of completion to participants of various free training programs such as mushroom production, organic fertilizer production, cacao production, basket/bag making, wine and vinegar making, and backyard organic vegetable production, among others.
