    TUBLAY, Benguet: Two farms in this vegetable producing town were recently recognized by the Department of Agriculture (DA) Cordillera office for their Good Agricultural Practices (GAP). Issued GAP certifications were: La Faustino Farm owned by Rebecca and Lolito Faustino of Barangay Ambassador for their lettuce, broccoli, and sweet pepper produce: and Cojoran Farm owned by Concepcion and Jeffrey Sotero of Barangay Daclan for their cucumber, lettuce, soya, tomato, and bitter gourd. The GAP Certificates were signed by Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala and issued by the Bureau of Agriculture and Fisheries Standards. These are valid until March 2, 2016. Good Agricultural Practices are defined by the Food and Agriculture Organization as “practices that address environmental, economic and social sustainability for on-farm processes, and result in safe and quality food and non-food agricultural products.”
