Jointly implemented by the DA-BPI-BNCRDPSC and the DA-Cordillera Regional Field Office (RFO), the “Enhancing Productivity and Producing High Quality Tomato Through the SGPP” project aims to sustain its operation through research and development, technology transfer of smart technologies, and training/capacity building of farmers.

There are also two ongoing research projects at the SGPP, namely, the performance evaluation of strawberry varieties/entries and the evaluation of different propagation techniques to produce quality plant materials. 

The SGPP, which was completed in 2022, is a grant by the Government of the Republic of Korea through the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA), the Korea Agency on Education, Promotion and Information Service on Food, Agriculture, Fisheries and Natural Resources (EPIS), Info Valle Korea Co., Ltd. and Shinhan A-Tec Co., Ltd. to the Cordillera people.###  (photos by Alan Jacalan, DA-AFID/ Jay Morales, DA-OSEC)
