LA TRINIDAD, Benguet – The Department of Agriculture-Cordillera (DA-Cordi) and the local government officials in the region have stepped up their efforts to encourage the farmers to increase the farmlands devoted to producing vegetables and coffee and simultaneously upgrade their Arabica coffee production.
