The Department of Agriculture headed by Secretary Manny Piñol himself consulted with Ifugao farmers on possible projects and provisions to be given to the province last August 31, 2016. The event mainly tackled the rehabilitation of the rice terraces once acknowledged among the eight wonders of the world.

The High Value Crops Development Program (HVCDP) under the Department of Agriculture is working closely with provincial and municipal agriculture offices to revisit blueprints on high value crops development in the region.

Joan Bacbac, Regional HVCDP focal person, said that the provincial meetings discussed the status of current projects being implemented in the region as well as production interventions to be endorsed for final approval. The priority commodities of each province were also subjected for revisions and reprogramming.
