Firm vows to help promote tobacco use vs farm, fishponds pests
MetadataShow full item record
A tobacco company based in Bulacan province said it would promote the use of tobacco dust as organic fertilizer and pesticide to help at least three million tobacco farmers and their families earn more income. “We are going to help the National Tobacco Administration (NTA) promote the use of tobacco dust by our millions of fishermen all over the country,” said Oscar P. Barrientos, executive vice president of Mighty Corp., an all-Filipino firm manufacturing cigarettes in Bulacan. The effectivity of TDP has been proven by studies conducted by a team from the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center in Tigbauan town, Iloilo province, under Dr. Joebert D. Toledo.
