60

Magsasagawa ang state researchers ng nutritional analysis sa 12 gulay sa bansa.

Ayon kay Department of Science and Technology (DOST) Secretary Fortunato Dela Peña, ang one-year project ay ipapatupad ng University of Los Baños at susuportahan ng DOST- Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (PCAARRD).


Kabilang sa mga isasalang sa pag-aaral ay ang wild ampalaya (bitter gourd), labong (bush sorrel), erwad (black-jack), lupo (sessile joyweed), camansi (bread nut), kulitis/uray (spiny amaranth), papait (jima), amti (glossy nightshade), kadyos (pigeon pea), pannalyapen (chemperai), sampsapon (fireweed), at langka (jackfruit).

Sabi ni Dela Peña, ang nutritional information ng mga piling gulay ay makakatulong na mapalakas ang pagkonsumo sa mga ito.

“The results can also guide the direction of research and development as well as steer the efforts toward the maintenance of this important diversity that has co-evolved and adapted to the local conditions over generations of continued cultivation,” sabi ni Dela Peña.

Ang proyekto ay pangungunahan ni Dr. Lorna Sister ng Institute of Crop Science, College of Agriculture and Food Science (ICropS-CAFS).
