Benguet farmers forced to sell sayote at P2/kg due to oversupply

“Benguet’s sayote farmers need your help!”

That’s what The Murang Gulay Shop (TMGS) said in its Facebook account, while sharing a photo of tons of freshly harvested sayote still idling in a storage room.

“There is an oversupply of sayote in Benguet. They are currently being bought at P2/kg [per kilogram] by middlemen. The farmers still have toms of sayote to harvest,” TMGS said.

In the supermarket here in Manila, sayote is selling for P14/kg to P40/kg.

TMGS is helping the farmers get the sayote sold at P180/10kg.

“For bulk orders, please contact TMGS at 09059691837,” it said.
