Suprema is high-yielding and it is also the favorite of traders and consumers. He finished only the elementary grades but his limited schooling has not prevented him from adopting improved farming practices that he learned from seminars and counseling from East-West technicians. Depending on the prevailing price at harvest time, Ambong could gross anywhere between P150,000 and P500,000 per growing cycle of four months.

Before he went into Suprema production, he used to make only about P10,000 a month from farming. Because of the good income from Suprema, he was able to buy a jeepney for public transport and a small truck for houling his harvest and bringing the same to market. He was also able to renovate his home and send his two children to college. His girl has finished nursing while his son is an HRM graduate.
