by Roldan A. Ponce
Cagayan de Oro City (6 August) -- Farmers of nine barangays in Tangub City, Misamis Occidental received some 500 durian seedlings from the city government, August 1.
Belonging to Cluster 3, these barangays are Caniangan, Paiton, Sicot, Aquino, Prenza, Lorenzo Tan, Taguite, San Antonio, and Bintana, according to the City Agriculturist Office.
City Agriculturist Emigdio E. Florida said aside from helping farmers improve their livelihood by planting fruit trees, this would also facilitate the promotion of clustered barangays into "tourist destinations" in the future since many will come to buy agricultural products like durian.
