Sec. William Dar on organic agriculture

September 15, 2019
It was only a brief phone conversation with the new Department of Agriculture Secretary William Dar regarding pushing further the implementation of the Organic Agriculture Act (Republic Act 10068 of 2010) especially now with the onslaught of the African swine fever (ASF) in several piggery farms in Antipolo, San Mateo and Montalban, Rizal; Bulacan and other areas of Central Luzon; and most recently, the Marikina River and Barangay Bagong Silang in Quezon City, killing numerous pigs. The short discussion was worth it.
