Best ‘Maisan sa Barangay’ project search begins

Following the success of the search for Best Gulayan at Maisan sa Eskwelahan or GAMES Project in Pangasinan, the Abono Partylist, in collaboration with the Department of Agriculture, is launching another project, the search for the Best Maisan sa Barangay Project.

The Maisan sa Barangay is a project of the Abono Partylist with the provincial government and four congressmen of Pangasinan, in coordination with the different municipal governments. It will be monitored by the DA, Office of the Provincial Agriculturist and media. It is a four-month activity that started last week of January and aims to promote the white corn as alternative staple food for Ilocanos other than rice and at the same time addressing the hunger problem in the countryside.

The project requires all barangays involved in the program to plant hybrid white corn specifically the Matutum variety in a 2,500 sq. meter area using 70 cm between furrows and 20 cm between hills as the planting distance.
