Zamboanga city has started producing white potatoes, based on a program undertaken by the City Agriculturist Office.

City Agriculturist Diosdado Palacat said that his office recently spent P6,000 for the purchase of about 2,000 white potatoes from Bukidnon.

“We are having our demonstration and seed production area in La Paz for the production of these planting materials to be distributed to farmers,” said Palacat in an interview.

After two months, the seeds will be distributed to farmers for mass production.

White potatoes currently cost from P90 to P120 per kilo at the Baguio market and P40 to P50 on site.

“By November or December, our farmers in La Paz will be producing that.  Baka queda P50 ya lang el kilo del patatas,” Palacat said. (RGAAGo)
