Palawan Board mem­ber Ed­uardo Modesto Ro­driguez called on all the towns in the prov­ince to put up their own veg­etable seed re­source cen­ters to cope with ris­ing mar­ket prices and mal­nu­tri­tion.

Ro­driguez, in a res­o­lu­tion, said the seed cen­ters can help LGUs to bridge the gap in the sup­ply of veg­etable ma­te­ri­als in the prov­ince and as part of their

“I move to stage a bat­tle against mal­nu­tri­tion in the en- tire prov­ince through this. We are also be­set with prob­lems such as lack of plant­ing ma­te­ri­als in veg­etable fields that’s why we are en­join­ing all the LGUs to es­tab­lish their own veg­etable seed re­source cen­ters,” he said.

Ro­driguez said the idea is to en­sure that veg­eta­bles with pro­teins, vi­ta­mins, and min­er­als are read­ily avail­able and af­ford­able, es­pe­cially in ar­eas with high mal­nu­tri­tion cases.

“Ang pagkaka­roon ng veg­etable seed re­source cen­ters ay kumple­men­taryo sa im­ple­men­ta­syon ng FAITH na back­yard gar­den­ing sa bawat mu­nisipyo,” he said.
