Agri inputs for farmers

Ching Sesbreno of the City Agriculture Office said 10 farmers? associations benefited from the project aimed at restoring and strengthening the food security of typhoon-affected farmers in the Bicol region.

Under the project, funded by the government of Spain, packages of coconut seeds (nuts), abaca suckers and fruit trees for intercropping, assorted vegetable seeds for backyard production, corn seeds and organic fertilizer were given. Roy Gersalia, Inquirer Southern Luzon

2 more bodies found

BACOLOD CITY--Divers found on Wednesday the remains of two more fishermen missing since Typhoon ?Frank? (international codename: Fengshen) hit Negros Occidental in July off the coast of Alotayan Island near Roxas City in Capiz.
