• Commonly planted in upland areas, traditional rice varieties are grown by local farmers in San Remigio, Antique which was believed to have nearly a hundred traditional rice varieties back then.

  • Aimed at uplifting the livelihood system of the farmers through value adding, the ITPGRFA Project assists in the establishment/improvement of market linkages within and outside the community. In San Remigio, Antique, town folks practice backyard farming of different vegetables, mostly traditional varieties, to sustain their daily needs.

  • The Udani family in Antique unknowingly preserved an old rice variety that was kept inside an ancient rice pot and believed to have been stored through a tradition by their elder family member for almost a century.

  • Pagsingitan, a small village in Baganga, Davao Oriental, can only be reached by walking for about 30 minutes from where the road is accessible to motorcycles.
