Nueva Vizcaya Agricultural Terminal’s (NVAT) supply is still enough to address the needs of people despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
Philippine Information Agency in region 2 reported on April 7, Wednesday, that farmers continue to produce fruits, vegetables, and root crops in the province.
But Gilbert Cumila, NVAT general manager noted that because of the high demand of agricultural products from the facility, prices of certain vegetables and some crops have increased.
More buyers of vegetables and fruits continue to flock to NVAT in Bambang town every day.
NVAT recorded 32 vehicles, which brought in 131,116 kilos of agricultural products such as fruits and vegetables to the National Capital Region; seven vehicles that delivered 15, 504 kilos of NVAT products to the Cordillera Autonomous Region (CAR); 59 vehicles with 129,708 kilos in Region 2; 51 vehicles with 151,208 kilos toward Region 3; and one vehicle with 3,000 kilos for Region IV A.
Cumila said assorted agricultural products bought during that particular day totaled to 452,598 kilos with 156 vehicles.
