Bangsamoro Autonomous Region, Mindanao:

Filipino growers urged to plant new crops amid pandemic

Starting in Maguindanao province, Bangsamoro Transition Authority – BARMM Member of Parliament (MP) Suharto M. Ambolodto, in collaboration with the regional Bangsamoro Board of Investments (BBOI), has stated that they have gathered over a dozen upland farming group leaders in the area to present new business opportunities to boost the farmers’ income.

Ambolodto said farmer leaders, mostly from Teduray farming communities in the tri-municipalities of South Upi, North Upi, and Datu Odin Sinsuat, all in Maguindanao, attended the forum held Wednesday here.

BBOI Board of Governor Mohammad Pasigan said their targets this time are farmers residing in the uplands of the region, to guide them in finding markets for their crops: “We would also link them on the programs and services of both government and non-government agencies to decide on either to start-up their new farm investments or to level-up their routine farming crops to generate more income.”

According to, highland farmers in Maguindanao rely mainly on corn, upland rice, and vegetable plantations as well as fruit-bearing plants including durian, coffee, and coconuts.
