A STORAGE facility for seeds and farming equipment is set to be built in Misamis Oriental, the head of the Provincial Agriculture Office (PAO) said.

Dr. Banjamin Resma, PAO chief, said the P10-million storage facility, funded by the Department of Agriculture, will be used to store seeds/seedlings, such as corn, rice, and other seeds usually used by the farmers of the province, and farming equipment.

According to Resma, Misamis Oriental Governor Yevgeny Emano has talked with the administrator of the government-run Philippine Veterans Investment Development Corp. (Phividec) to grant the province the area needed in the construction of the facility.
