The consortium together with LGU-Bacarra led by the Municipal Agriculture Office assisted the group. But before the field visit, a short meeting was first conducted at the One Stop Information Shop wherein the project leader Prof. Love Grace Campano presented a short status report of the project "Ensuring the Year-Round Supply of Quality Tomato Through S&T Interventions".
