Farmers attend to a potato farm in Kaatuan, Lantapan, Bukidnon. One common problem in farming now in the area is lack of farm workers, who pay around P200 to P250 a day. Sometimes expansion is affected because there are no enough workers from planting to harvesting.  Another issue of local farmers is the high cost of farming inputs like fertilizers and pesticides while farm gate prices are low.  This adds to preexisting woes like bad weather and spoiled plants.
