    Phl to improve agriculture sector

    THE Philippine government has stepped up its efforts to improve the plight of people in the agricultural sector, Presidential Communications Operations Office Secretary Herminio Coloma, Jr. said during Tuesday’s press briefing at the Palace.
    Coloma said the government has assessed 44 provinces based on high poverty magnitude, poverty incidence, and vulnerability to natural disasters, which contribute to poverty.
    It is also helping the farmers increase their yield and is giving them opportunities to plant high-yielding crops to increase their income, he said.
    Commenting on criticisms that the sector has been lacking support from the government for a long time, Coloma said data from the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) could be analyzed to see if the farmers’ incomes have increased.
