  • For January-March 2017, production of bermuda onion was recorded at 102.10 thousand metric tons, 72.3 percent higher than the 59.25 thousand metric tons output last year. The growth could be traced to the increase in area planted in Nueva Ecija and Nueva Vizcaya due to seeds distribution program of the DA through the LGUs.
