NFA set to buy corn from IN farmers

Starting this harvest season, Ilocos corn farmers will have a better chance to sell their produce at a higher price as the National Food Authority (NFA) will be buying from them.

Aside from the regular planting of rice and other high value commercial crops such as garlic, union and vegetables, corn growing seems to have been lagging behind in terms of getting a fair market price from middle men buyers due to current trading practices such as the farmers’ need for immediate cash, lack of storage facilities, lack of transport facilities and some farmers had already compromised their products before harvest to traders.
