Make sure to get a copy of the March 2020 issue of Agriculture Magazine which is now off the press. You will read about the very juicy financial incentives that the government is offering to young agripreneurs. These include a P500,000 grant for startups who can come up with a viable project that they can pursue.
Besides the grant, there are zero interest and collateral-free loans of P500,000 to as much as P15 million payable in five years.
Other stories include pricey vanilla, a wasteland that was transformed into an agritourism destination in Candelaria, Quezon, Philippine sea salt and many others.
Agriculture Magazine is the most widely circulated magazine of its kind in the Philippines. It is only P85 per copy, available in bookstores and outlets of Manila Bulletin nationwide.
