Asking for ZAC’s Farming Advice?

We receive a lot of messages (texts, email, phone calls) asking for advice or something else. Many don’t give their names and addresses, some just ask what projects are most profitable for them, etc.
Just like an e-mailer who just said he is a new parent with a 21-year-old wife and a new child. He didn’t give his name and address where he lives or where to put up his project (city, province or elsewhere). It’s not easy to give the right advice without knowing the circumstances he is in and other relevant info about him.

SO HERE’S OUR ADVICE: Please give your Mobile Phone No. so I can respond immediately to your queries  even if I am out in the field (which is very often). If you want a face-to-face encounter, text me. You might want to see me at Teresa Orchard & Nursery in Teresa, Rizal so we can know each other better. But make an appointment. We prefer to meet just a few people at a time, not more than five. We can provide some practical advice and maybe learn from you also. There’s no fee for seeing us. 

We prefer to meet people in the afternoon of Saturdays and Sundays. Text or call us at 0917-841-5477. This is Zac B. Sarian, agriculture editor of the Manila Bulletin and a hands-on farmer.

  1. hi sir,

    Im an avid reader of your column which caught my interest esp. in every topic you've written in agriculture. Hopefully, I could also join seminars and lectures regarding recent topics and updates in agriculture today as I'm also planning to have my own agri-ventures in our province in Pangasinan.
    Thanks and more power!.

  2. Hi Sir,

    My Name is Ruel Hinaloc from Cebu City but I'm a native in Mabini, Bohol. I like your tips and advice about farming. Recently i plant more or less 1,800 seedlings of eggplant morena F1 variety from east west seeds company in the mountain barrangay of Cebu City. The harvest is good but the typhoon yolanda destroy the crops. I notice the 3 hot pepper plant that i plant for personal use that it is not affected by typhoon. It is still bearing many fruits. I read in your post that the red hot pepper is a money maker so I plan to plant this red hot pepper instead of eggplant in my home town in Mabini, Bohol this April 2014. As of now, I don't have idea if there are buyer of red hot pepper in tagbilaran city. I hope there is!

    Pls. inform me if there are seminar/training about new technique in farming in Cebu City or In Tagbilaran City, Bohol. My cell number is 09167806505

    Best regards,
