We are winning the organic farming revolution, and Negros Island is at the frontline, André Leu, president of the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM), said yesterday.
Leu, who was the keynote speaker at the 12th National Organic Agriculture Congress at the SMX Convention Center in Bacolod, said Negros made the right decision in pushing to become an organic island because he knows it will succeed and history will be on its side.
Liberal Party standard bearer Mar Roxas, in an interview with national media yesterday, said Rep. Alfredo Abelardo Benitez (Neg. Occ., 3 rd District) has invited him to be a guest tomorrow at an affair in Negros Occidental and that the congressman is supporting his presidential bid.
