NUEVA VIZCAYA & CAGAYAN | March 22-24, 2023 – FPA Region II conducted trainings for vegetable and rice farmers on the responsible use of agricultural pesticides from March 22-24, 2023, in the provinces of Nueva Vizcaya and Cagayan.

Two separate training was conducted in the Municipality of Kayapa, Nueva Vizcaya, in Brgy. Besong and Kayapa Proper from March 22 to 23. The third batch was conducted in Libertad, Abulug, Cagayan on March 24.

The said training aimed to educate the farmers on the safe and judicious use of agricultural pesticides before, during, and after application to crops. This also served as a venue for product stewardship from the participating chemical companies.
