Phil Army engages in DA’s Plant, Plant, Plant Program

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY (PIA)–The 58th Infantry Battalion, Philippine Army received assorted vegetable seeds from the Department of Agriculture – Regional Field Office (DA-RFO)-10 in support to the agency’s “Plant, Plant, Plant Program” or “Ahon Lahat, Pagkaing Sapat (ALPAS) Laban sa COVID-19.”

DA-10 Regional Technical Director for Operations Carlota S. Madriaga handed the 175 packs of 5-in-1 Pinakbet seeds to 58IB Commanding Officer Lt. Col. Ricky L. Canatoy to develop their existing areas for food production and livelihood for the soldiers.

Canatoy said the agency’s campaign is a great help since it encourages people to be productive while staying at home during this health crisis.“We will also be sharing the vegetable seeds to the remote areas near our camp, especially to the former rebels and CAFGU (Citizen Armed Force Geographical Unit) so that they may also benefit from it,” he concluded.
