The Agri. Pinoy Trading Center (APTC) was established in Vinzons, Camarines Norte as a  farmers’ trading center of choice, patronized by vendors and traders as a reliable and stable venue for procuring quality produce at the best value.  It aims of providing a stable supply of quality, safe and affordable agricultural products throughout the year. 

Vegetables and fruits are the major commodities with high demand at the APTC but production volume is limited.  Expansion areas, latest cultural management technologies and good seeds are the identified interventions needed to increase productivity. It is in this context that this project is being proposed.

Specifically, it aims to:

  1. Demonstrate field performance of superior varieties of various high value vegetable crops;
  2. Promote production of high value vegetable crops;
  3. Encourage increase consumption of vegetables;
  4. Demonstrate new technologies in vegetable growing and processing; and,
  5. Establish market linkages between vegetable producers and institutional markets.
