MAITUM, Sarangani (March 14, 2008) – A caretaker inspects mango seedlings at the Lamlunay Research and Learning Center (LRLC) in barangay Upo, a finalist in the recent Gawad Galing Pook national awards on outstanding local governance programs. LRLC in Maitum is a 108-hectare facility that maintains nurseries of fruit trees and other crops and distributes seedlings to barangays. LRLC demo farms use sloping agricultural land technology. Diversified farming systems are also maintained in the center. Through LRLC, a brainchild of the late Mayor George Yabes, the average family income in barangay Upo has continuously increased.
