Eleven groups of young farmers receive awards from the Department of Agriculture and Senator Imee Marcos during the Young Farmers Challenge (YFC) 2022 National Capital Region Provincial-Level Awarding at the Bureau of Soils and Water Management Convention Hall in Quezon City on August 31, 2022.

The YFC aims to encourage and support young agri-preneurs to stay or return to agriculture and to engage them in food production, processing of agricultural products, and other farm-based enterprises. It also aims to provide the youth opportunity to own, lease, develop and cultivate land for agricultural purposes.

Through the program, the DA offers business development services assistance to the youth including training programs and assistance in business and product registration and certification, mentoring assistance, market linking and business networking, and monitoring and enterprise assessment. ### (Photos by Alan Jay Jacalan, DA-AFID)
