Abstract

The collaborative project between AVRDC and TMPEGS-Philippines under the sponsorship of USAID-SANREM CRSP aims to introduce indigenous vegetable (Iv) germplasm to the agroforestry system in Lantapan watershed, identifying vegetable varieties suitable for cultivation with trees. Introduction of Ivs could enhance plant biodiversity in the area, leading to diversification of farmers' production systems and raising household incomes. Using different kinds of Ivs also could improve family nutrition.
