HYPE SEGMENTS:
VO: THIS MORNING
SARAP KITA-ALL WE NEED TO MAKE A GRANOLA BAR IS… WHAT IS THIS FOOD THAT’S NOT ONLY ENERGY-GIVING, BUT ALSO INCOME-GENERATING…?
 
HANEP BABOY- IN OUR DISCUSSION ABOUT QUICK PROGRESS… THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS THAT WE HAVE TO CONSIDER IN ORDER TO ENSURE THE LIVES OF OUR PIGLETS… WATCH OUT FOR THAT LATER ON… HANEP BABOY…
 
AGRI BIDA- WHO WILL BE CHOSEN AS THE WINNER FOR “MY FATHER’S AN AGRI BIDA”? HIS SUCCESS STORY… WATCH LATER!
 
ITANIM- BUT BEFORE THAT, THE FRUIT REGARDED AS KING, HOW IS IT GROWN? DURIAN FRUIT… ITANIM NA YAN!
 
VO:  “SMELLS LIKE HELL BUT TASTES LIKE HEAVEN…REGARDED AS THE KING, IT’S TASTE IS INCOMPARABLE… IT’S THE “KING OF ALL FRUITS” IN SOUTHEAST ASIAN COUNTRIES... DURIAN!
VO: THORNY ON THE OUTSIDE, IT’S INSIDE IS RICH IN VITAMINS LIKE POTASSIUM, FIBER, AMINO ACID AND IRON, ALL OF WHICH IS NEEDED BY OURBODY.
VO:  PUYAT…COB…ARANCILLO… MON-THONG…AND MANY MORE… THESE ARE DURIAN VARIETIES WE COULD CHOOSE FROM. AND THESE ARE WHAT WE WILL LEARN TO GROW THIS MORNING.
VO: AND, OF COURSE, IT IS HERE IN DAVAO CITY, ALSO KNOWN AS THE “DURIAN REPUBLIC OF THE PHILIPPINES”, WHERE WE WILL PLANT!
VO: AND OUR TEACHER? THE REKNOWNED DURIAN KING! MR. SEVERINO BELVIZ TOGETHER WITH HIS SON, EMMANUEL BELVIZ.
VO: OH, FATHER AND SON TANDEM... OKAY, HOW DO WE START, SIR SEVERINO AND NHEL?
NHEL: TO PLANT DURIAN, FROM THE FRESH FRUIT.. WE WASH AND SEGREGATE THE SEEDS…AFTER THAT, WE PRE-GERMINATE THEM USING A WET RUCKSACK AND WAIT FOR 2-3 DAYS UNTIL THE TOP ROOT SHOWS..
VO: WHEN THE TOPROOT SHOWS...WASH IT AGAIN AND WHEN IT GROWS A BIT MORE...
NHEL: PAGKATAPOS NIYAN AY TINATANIM NAMIN DITO SA MGA SEEDLING BAG NA MAY MEDIA NA 1/3 RICE HULL AT CHICKEN DUNG AT 2/3 GARDEN SOIL.NGAYON READY NA ITONG ITANIM AT ILALAGAY NATIN DITO..GUMAWA MUNA NG MALIIT NA BUTAS..SIGURADUHIN LANG NA NASA BABANG PARTE ANG UGAT PARA DIRETSO SIYANG KUMAPIT SA MEDIA NATIN…
NHEL: AFTER THAT, WE PLANT IT IN A SEEDLING BAG WITH A MEDIA COMPOSED OF 1/3 RICE HULL AND CHICKEN DUNG AND 2/3 GARDEN SOIL. NOW, IT IS READY TO BE PLANTED AND WE’LL JUST PUT IT HERE… WE FIRST HAVE TO MAKE A SMALL HOLE... MAKE SURE THAT THE ROOT IS PLACED AT THE BOTTOM PART SO THAT IT WILL HAVE DIRECT ACCESS TO OUR MEDIA…
VO: OH, IT’S SURPRISINGLY EASY TO PLANT, KA-AGRI... ANYONE CAN DO IT... HOWEVER... ACCORDING TO NHEL, THERE’S SOMETHING WE MUST ALWAYS KEEP IN MIND...
NHEL: DON’T PUT TOO MUCH PRESSURE ON THE PLANT FOR US NOT TO ACCIDENTALLY CUT THE ROOTS.
VO: AFTER PLANTING THE DURIAN SEEDS, WE HAVE TO PUT FUNGICIDE ON IT TO GET RID OF THE FUNGUS ON THE SEEDS. AND THEN WE HAVE TO COVER IT TO PROTECT IT FROM THE HEAT OF THE SUN.
VO: WHEN IT GROWS... THIS WILL BECOME THE ROOTSTOCK WHICH WE WILL USE TO CREATE DURIAN GRAFTED SEEDLINGS.
VO: THE NATIVE VARIETY IS BEST OT USE AS ROOTSTOCK BECAUSE IT’S DOESN’T EASILY ATTRACT DISEASES. ONLY THEN CAN WE GRAFT IT TO THE SCION OF YOUR PREFERRED VARIETY.BUT WHAT IS THIS “SCION”, SIR NHEL?
NHEL: IN CHOOSING A SCION, WE SHOULD CHOOSE BRANCHES THAT HAVE ACTIVE BUDS LIKE THIS ONE, IT’S BUDS ARE ACTIVE… WE MUST CUT OFF 6-8 INCHES.
VO: THERE! THEY’RE READY FOR GRAFTING... SO WHAT ELSE DO WE NEED ASIDE FROM THE ROOTSTOCK AND SCION?
NHEL: WHAT WE NEED IN REJOINING THE PARTS OF THE DURIAN IS A CELLOPHANE AND A KNIFE. WE MUST CLEAN THE SCION BY CUTTING OFF THE LEAVES. BE CAREFUL NOT TO CUT THE BUDSNEAR THE LEAVES.AFTER THIS, CUT A LITTLE BIT OFF OF THE ROOTSTOCK AND CREATE A WEDGE-SHAPED OPENING ON IT.CREATE A V-SHAPED OPENING ON THE SCION, TOO. THEN, JOIN THE TWO OPENINGS AND REJOIN BOTH AT THE WEDGE WE’VE CREATED…AFTER THAT, WE’LL WRAP IT WITH CELLOPHANE. MAKE SURE THE TIE IS TIGHT SO THAT THE WATER CANNOT ENTER.
VO: AFTER TYING IT, WRAP THE BUDS WITH CELLOPHANE AND…
NHEL: AFTER ONE WEEK, IF YOU SEE THE FLASH ALIVE AND GROWING, YOU CAN ALREADY TAKE OFF THE CELLOPHANE.…
VO: AFTER 2-3 MONTHS...THIS CAN ALREADY BE TRANSPLANTED.
VO: DAGDAG PA NILA…KUNG MAGLILIPAT TANIM...SIGURADUHING NASA 1000 FEET ABOVE SEA LEVEL ANG ELEVATION NG LUPANG PAGTATANIMAN… ITO YUNG NASA MGA MATATAAS NA BAHAGI DAHIL ITO ANG NAAYONG LUPA PARA SA MGA DURIAN.
VO: IN TRANSPLANTING, MAKE A HOLE WITH A SIZE OF A FOOT.
VO: MIX CHICKEN DUNG INTO THE SOIL. THIS WILL SERVE AS OUR FERTILIZER.
VO: IN ADDITION, ACCORDING TO SIR NHEL AND SIR SEVERINO, THE DISTANCE BETWEEN EACH TREE TO PLANT DEPENDS ON THE VARIETY YOU’RE USING... IF YOU’RE USING A VARIETY WITH A WIDE CANOPY, MUCH LIKE THE ARANCILLO, THE DISTANCE BETWEEN EACH PLANT SHOULD BE 10X10. SIMILARLY, THE DISTANCE BETWEEN VARIETIES WITHOUT OVERLY THICK LEAVES SHOULD BE 8X8, LIKE THE PUYAT VARIETY.
VO: ALSO, ACCORDING TO THEM, AYON DIN SA KANILA, IT WOULD TAKE FIVE YEARS FOR YOU TO HARVEST FRUITS FROM THE NEWLY PLANTED DURIAN TREE.
VO: SO THERE YOU HAVE IT, MGA KA-AGRI...THE NEXT TIME YOU EAT DURIAN, DON’T THROW THE SEEDS AWAY, BECAUSE THOSE SEEDS ARE THE SOURCE OF THE NUTRITIOUS AND DELICIOUS TASTE OF THE “KING OF FRUITS”… DURIAN!
SEVERINO/NHEL: THAT IS WHY DURIAN FRUIT… ITANIM NA YAN!
 
AND LATER… ALL THAT WITH THE RETURN OF THE SHOW THAT SALUTES ALL THE FATHERS IN THE WORLD… AGRI TAYO DITO!
 
 
BODY 2
 
REJOINDER VO: EARLIER, WE LEARNED HOW TO PLANT DURIAN. NOW, WHAT IS THIS FRUIT THAT GIVES ENERGY TO OUR BODY? FIND OUT ON… SARAP KITA!
 
SARAP KITA: (ONE NETWORK BANK OBB)
VO: STRONG AND RELIABLE… THEY’RE OUR FATHERS! BECAUSE OF THEIR RESPONSIBILITIES, IT IS ONLY NATURAL THAT THEY MAINTAIN A TOUGH BODY.
VO: AND EXCERCISING REGULARLY IS ONE OF THE EFFECTIVE WAYS TO MAINTAIN A STRONG AND A WELL-CONDITIONED BODY.
ON CAM:ASIDE FROM EXCERCISING, IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT TO EAT FOODS THAT ARE RICH IN VITAMINS, MINERALS, AND CARBOHYDRATES IN ORDER FOR OUR FATHERS TO STAY HEALTHY. ONE EXAMPLE IS GRANOLA THAT’S MADE INTO A BAR! HMM.. IS IT EVEN POSSIBLE?
VO: THE GRANOLA BAR IS A FOOD USUALLY EATEN DURING BREAKFAST OR SNACKTIME. ITS INGREDIENTS: OATS, NUTS, AND HONEY ARE RICH IN VITAMIN E AND B WHICH HELP KEEP THE HEART AND NERVOUS SYSTEM HEALTHY.
ON CAM: THIS MORNING, MGA KA-AGRI, WE WILL BE JOINED BY SIR JOJO AND HE WILL TEACH US HOW TO MAKE A GRANOLA BAR… GOOD MORNING, SIR JOJO!
JOJO: GOOD MORNING, RUBEN… GOOD MORNING, MGA KA-AGRI… I WILL TEACH YOU ALL HOW TO MAKE THIS GRANOLA BAR.
RUBEN: SO WHAT DO WE NEED TO MAKE GRANOLA BAR?
 
ALL WE NEED ARE:
 2 CUPS INSTANT OATS, 1 CUP GRATED COCONUT, 1 CUP BROWN SUGAR, ½ CUP OF BUTTER, 3 TABLESPOONS OF HONEY, ½ TEASPOON OF SALT, ½ TO 1 CUP OF NUTS, AND 1 TEASPOON OF VANILLA
ON CAM RUBEN: NOW, WHAT SHOULD WE DO FIRST, SIR JOJO?
ON CAM GUEST: WE MIX THE GRATED COCONUT AND OATS… THERE…
GUEST VO: IN A SMALL BOWL, MIX THE NUTS AND THE SALT. THEN, IN A FRYING PAN, MELT THE BUTTER AND POUR IN THE HONEY. MIX WELL.
ON CAM GUEST: AFTER THAT, WE MIX OUR…
ON CAM RUBEN: THE OATMEAL AND GRATED COCONUT THAT WE MIXED EARLIER
ON CAM GUEST: AFTER WE MIX THE HONEY AND THE OATS, LET’S ADD IN THE NUTS
ON CAM RUBEN: OKAY
ON CAM GUEST: THERE, THEN LET’S ADD…
VO GUEST: POUR IN THE VANILLA AND MIX WELL FOR 20 MINUTES. WHEN THE OATS TURN GOLDEN BROWN, TAKE IT OUT AND PUT IT IN A BIG BOWL.
ON CAM GUEST: WE NEED TO CARAMELIZE THE SUGAR. THIS BROWN SUGAR WILL BE USED AS OUR BINDER. WHAT WE’LL DO, RUBEN, IS TO COOK THE SUGAR UNTIL IT BOILS IN ORDER TO MAKE A SUGAR SOLUTION.
VO GUEST: WHEN THE SUGAR MELTS, POUR IN THE GRANOLA. MIX WELL UNTIL IT SOFTENS. THEN, IT’S READY TO BE TRANSFERRED ONTO A PLATE FOR US TO BE ABLE TO SHAPE IT.
OUT OF YOUR 100 PESO CAPITAL, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO MAKE 15 GRANOLA BARS WHICH YOU CAN SELL AT A PRICE OF 12.00 PESOS EACH. FROM THIS, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO EARN 80 PESOS.
ON CAM RUBEN: MGA KA-AGRING FATHERS, A STRONG AND HEALTHY BODY IS SURELY OBTAINABLE WITH THE HELP OF PRODUCTS THAT NOT ONLY REINFORCE GOOD HEALTH, BUT WILL ALSO GIVE YOU… 
SARAP KITA: (ONE NETWORK BANK CBB)
 
UPNEXT: AND STAY TUNED… THERE ARE A LOT OF THINGS WE MUST CONSIDER TO ENDURE THE LIVES OF OUR PIGLETS… ALL THAT WITH THE RETURN OF THE SHOW THAT SALUTES ALL THE FATHERS IN THE WORLD… AGRI TAYO DITO!
 
BODY 3
 
REJOINDER VO: FROM THE FOOD THAT NOT ONLY GIVES ENERGY BUT ALSO ADDITIONAL INCOME, NOW LET’S TURN TO OUR DISCUSSION ON QUICK SUCCESS… HERE ON HANEP BABOY!
HANEP BABOY: (BMEG OBB)
VO: AFTER DISCUSSING THE RIGHT FOOD FOR THE FAST GROWTH OF OUR NEWLY BORN PIGLETS, NOW WE WILL SHARE TO YOU THE RIGHT MEDICATIONS FOR THE PIGLETS BEFORE SEPARATING THEM FROM THE SOW.
ON CAM RUBEN: ONE “HANEP” MORNING TO YOU, MGA KA-AGRI, AND WE’RE HERE TOGETHER WITH OUR SAN MIGUEL ANIMAL HEALTH CARE VETERINARIAN, DOC. NILO CABARDO. GOOD MORNING, DOC.
ON CAM GUEST: GOOD MORNING, RUBEN, AND TO YOU, TOO, “HANEP NA KA-AGRI”, ONE BEAUTIFUL MORNING TO YOU ALL. 
ON CAM RUBEN: DOC, AFTER WE GIVE THE RIGHT FOOD TO OUR PIGLETS BEFORE WE SEPARATE THEM FROM THE SOW, OF COURSE IT’S IMPORTANT THAT THEY BE GIVEN THE RIGHT MEDICATION.
ON CAM GUEST: YES, RUBEN, BECAUSE IT IS IN THESE TIMES THAT THERE’S A LOT THAT WE HAVE TO CONSIDER TO ENSURE THAT THE PIGLETS WILL CONTINUE TO LIVE AFTER BEING SEPARATED FROM THEIR SOW. 
VO: KEEP IN MIND THAT THE BREASTFEEDING PIGLETS BEFORE THE SEPARATION USUALLY WEAKENS AND DIES BECAUSE OF SCOURING. AND THE TARGETED PRE-WEANING MORTALITY RATE SHOULD NOT EXCEED 10% 
ON CAM RUBEN: DOC, WHAT IS THIS PRE-WEANING MORTALITY? 
ON CAM GUEST: THE PRE-WEANING MORTALITY, RUBEN AND MGA KA-AGRI, IS THE NUMBER OR QUANTITY OF PIGLETS THAT DO NOT SURVIVE OR DIE EVEN BEFORE THEY GET SEPARATED FROM THEIR SOW. 
VO: THE PRE-WEANING MORTALITY MAY BE A RESULT OF CONTAGIOUS AND NON-CONTAGIOUS ILLNESSES THAT BECOME THE CAUSE OF THE DEATH OF THE PIGLETS. THE NON-INFECTIOUS CAUSES THAT RESULT TO THESE DEATHS INCLUDE: WHEN THEY GET ACCIDENTALLY PINNED DOWN UNDER THEIR SOW, STARVATION, EXCESSIVELY HIGH TEMPERATURE, AND STRESS; WHEREAS THE COMMON INFECTIOUS OR CONTAGIOUS DISEASES THAT THE PIGLETS ACQUIRE DURING THESE TIMES ARE SCOURING OR DIARRHEA, PNEUMONIA, AND OTHER DISEASES.
 
IF THAT’S THE CASE, DOC, IT’S IMPORTANT THAT WE MAKE SURE THE PRE-WEANING MORTALITY RATE STAYS LOW. BUT WHAT CAN OUR KA-AGRI DO SO THAT THE PRE-WEANING MORTALITY RATE WON’T EXCEED 10%?
 
ON CAM GUEST: MGA KA-AGRI, LET US KEEP IN MIND THAT PROCESSING IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST FACTORS HOW THE BACTERIA CAN ENTER THE BODIES OF THE PIGLETS UNDER OUR CARE.
 
VO: LIKE E.COLI, CLOSTRIDIUM, SALMONELLA, STREPTOCOCCUS AND STAPHYLOCOCCUS IN OUR BREASTFEEDING PIGLETS. THAT’S WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO PUT IODIN ON THE WOUNDS OF THE PROCESSING; STARTING FROM THE CUTTING OF THE TAIL, CASTRATING, AND EVEN WITH THE EAR MARKING OR NOTCHING. THIS IS BECAUSE THERE ARE A LOT OF BACTERIAS WAITING FOR THE PIGLETS WHEN THEY GET BORN, WHICH IS WHY IT IS IMPORTANT TO ENSURE THAT THEIR PENS ARE PROPERLY DISINFECTED EVEN BEFORE THE PARTURIENT SOW IS TRANSFERRED TO THE FARROWING PENS.
 
JUST MIX 5ML OR ONE TEASPOON OF PROTECT PLUS IN ONE GALLON OF WATER. USE THIS TO CLEAN THE BIRTHING PEN ONE WEEK OR AT LEAST THREE DAYS BEFORE YOU TRANSFER THE SOW.
 
ON CAM RUBEN: DOC, ABOUT THE CONTAGIOUS DISEASES YOU MENTIONED EARLIER THAT COULD CAUSE THE DEATH OF THE PIGLETS, HOW COULD THAT BE AVOIDED?
DOC: IT IS IMPORTANT THAT WE GIVE EFFECTIVE MEDICATION TO THE ANIMALS UNDER OUR CARE TO HELP THEM FIGHT OFF DISEASES.
 
VO: SAN MIGUEL HEALTH CARE HAS DIFFERENT EFFECTIVE PRODUCTS THAT HELP YOUR ANIMALS AVOID DIESEASES.
 
AT THE FIRST SIGNS OF SCOURING, ARTHRITIS, MENINGITIS OR SKIN INFECTION IN BREASFFEEDING PIGLETS, INJECT THEM IMMEDIATELY WITH ALAMYCIN L.A. FROM SAN MIGUEL ANIMAL HEALTHCARE. BECAUSE THE PIGLETS DON’T DRINK THAT MUCH WATER YET, IT’S BEST TO ADMINISTER THE MEDICATION THROUGH INJECTION.
 
THE ALAMYCIN L.A. IS EFFECTIVE AGAINST BACTERIAL SCOURING AND SEPTICEMIA. JUST INJECT 1ML OF THE SOLUTION FOR EVERY 10KG WEIGHT MEASUREMENT OF A PIG.
IT WOULD ALSO BE OF GREAT HELP TO MIX MULTIVITAMINS AND ELECTROLYTES WSP FROM SAN MIGUEL ANIMAL HEALTH CARE IN THE PIGLETS’ DRINKING WATER TO SERVE AS SUPPLEMENTS TO HELP THEM RECOVER FROM INFECTION.
 
THE MULTIVITAMINS WILL HELP STRENGTHEN THE BODY TO PROTECT IT AGAINST DISEASES AND HELP INCREASE THE PIGLETS’ APPETITE.
 
IN TURN, THE ELECTROLYTES HELP PREVENT DEHYDRATION CAUSED BY DIARRHEA AND EXCESSIVE HEAT.
 
JUST MIX 1 SACHET IN 1 GALLON OF DRINKING WATER PER PIG. THIS IS TO BE GIVEN DAILY FOR 5-7 DAYS.
 
ON CAM RUBEN: DOC, WE’VE ALREADY DISCUSSED THE FACT THAT OVERTIME, THE NUTRIENTS IN THE SOW’S BREASTMILK LESSENS AND WEAKENS. THAT SAID, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE PIGLETS BE TRAINED TO EAT FEEDS. 
 
RIGHT YOU ARE, RUBEN. ANS, OF COURSE, HIGH-QUALITY FEEDS SHOULD BE GIVEN TO THE PIGLETS.
 
VO: GIVE THEM B-MEG’S BOOSTER FEED.
BOOSTER FEEDS WILL SUPPLEMENT THE NUTRIENTS IN THE BREASTMILK AND WILL TRAIN THE PIGLETS TO EAT SOLID FEEDS.
 
SO FROM 7-10 DAYS OLD, IT IS BEST TO INTRODUCE BMEG BOOSTER FEEDS TO THE PIGLETS UNDER YOUR CARE. DISSOLVE THE FEEDS IN LUKEWARM WATER TO MATCH THE TEMPERATURE AND CONDITION OF THE SOW’S BREASTMILK. PUT SOME ON THE SOW’S BREAST AREA OR ON THE PIGLET’S SNOUT FOR THEM TO BE ABLE TO TASTE IT. BECAUSE THIS IS DELICIOUS, THE PIGLETS WILL CONTINUE TO SEEK IT. JUST PUT A GRADUALLY INCREASING AMOUNT OF BMEG PREMIUM BOOSTER FEEDS IN BROODER FEEDERS SO IT WILL ALWAYS STAY FRESH.
 
BMEG PREMIUM BOOSTER FEEDS WITH ZERO SCOURING FORMULA WILL HELP PREVENT DIARRHEA IN PIGLETS. THIS IS FORMULATED WITH HIGHLY DIGESTABLE RAW MATERIALS SO IT IS EASY FOR THEM TO DIGEST. IT ALSO HAS ACIDIFIERS WHICH WILL HELP LOWER BACTERIAL REPLICATION. IN ADDITION, IT HAS PRE-BIOTIC FIBERS FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF INTESTINAL VILLI AND HAS CHOICE ANTIBIOTICS TO HELP LESSESN COMMENSAL AND CONTAMINANT BACTERIA.
 
 
ON CAM RUBEN: THAT SAID, DOC, NOW, WE OUR KA-AGRIS CAN BE SURE THAT THE PRE-WEANING MORTALITY OF THEIR PIGLETS WILL NOT EXCEED 10%. AND FOR THAT, THANK YOU VERY MUCH, DOC!
 
SPEAKER: IT WAS NOTHING, RUBEN. AND JUST CONTINUE TO WATCH ON, KA-AGRIS.
 
RUBENRIGHT! AND DON’T GO AWAY BECAUSE NEXT SUNDAY, WE WILL TALK ABOUT THE THINGS TO REMEMBER WHEN IT COMES TO SEPARATING SOWS AND PIGLETS. OF, COURSE, ALL THAT AND MORE ONLY HERE ON…
 
BOTH: HANEP BABOY!
 
HANEP BABOY: (BMEG CBB)
 
UPNEXT: AND LATER… “ALL OF OUR INCOME IS 100% TAKEN FROM THE INCOME WE MAKE OUT OF GRAPES.”
ALL THAT WITH THE RETURN OF THE SHOW THAT SALUTES ALL THE FATHERS IN THE WORLD… AGRI TAYO DITO!
 
 
BODY 4 
REJOINDER VO: FROM OUR DISCUSSION ABOUT SPEEDY SUCCESS, WHO IS THIS FATHER WHOM WE SHALL KNOW AS “AGRI BIDA ANG TATAY KO” (MY DAD IS AN AGRI BIDA)? KNOW HIS STORY HERE ON… AGRI BIDA!
 
VO: TO COMMEMORATE OUR FATHERS WHO HAVE IMMEASURABLY HUGE ROLES IN OUR LIVES, AGRI TAYO DITO LAUNCHED “AGRI BIDA ANG TATAY KO” (MY DAD IS AN AGRI BIDA), AN ONLINE PROMO WHERE ALL OUR KA-AGRIS WERE INVITED TO POST ON OUR FACEBOOK FAN PAGE ACCOUNT A PICTURE OF THEIR FATHER TOGETHER WITH A MESSAGE WHY HE DESREVES TO BE THE AGRI BIDA ON OUR VERY SPECIAL FATHER’S DAY EPISODE.
 
AND BECAUSE OF ALL THE OVERWHELMING NUMBER OF THOSE WHO POSTED, IT TRULY FEELS SPECIAL TO BE PART OF THE COLORFUL AGRI-KWENTO (AGRI-STORIES) OF YOUR DADS, KA-AGRIS!
 
WE ARE SINCERELY GRATEFUL FOR YOUR FERVENT PARTICIPATION AND POSTING!
 
AND BECAUSE OF THEIR FATHER’S ENORMOUS CONTRIBUTION IN THE AGRICULTURAL SECTOR, MOST ESPECIALLY IN THE GRAPE INDUSTRY, THE LUCKY CHOSEN ONE IS A POST MADE BY JOE GAPUZ FROM THE PROVINCE OF LA UNION.
 
NAT SOT INTERVIEW OF GUEST: MY FATHER, CIRILO GAPUZ, IS AN AGRI BIDA BECAUSE HE SUPPORTED OUR FAMILY JUST BY GROWING GRAPES IN THE FARM.
 
ON CAM GUEST:  LIFE WAS HARD IN THE PAST, THAT’S WHY MY FATHER THOUGHT OF PLANTING GRAPES. THE MONEY HE MAKES FROM HIS DAY JOB DIDN’T SUFFICE. AND MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS WERE GROWING UP AND STARTED GOING TO SCHOOL. HIS SALARY OF 130 PESOS PER MONTH FROM HIS WORK IN THE MUNICIPAL OFFICE WASN’T ENOUGH TO SUPPORT OUR FAMILY. HE PLANTED 100 GRAPE SEEDLINGS ON OUR 500 SQM BACKYARD. HE CONTINUED CARING FOR THE PLANTS UNTIL THEY WERE ABLE TO SAVE ENOUGH MONEY. THEY SAVED UP THE MONEY THEY MADE UNTIL THEY WERE ABLE TO BUY THIS LAND FOR EXPANSION.
 
THIS AREA BEFORE WAS REALLY LOW. HALF OF IT WAS USED AS A TILAPIA FISHPOND. THEY COVERED IT WITH SOIL THEY GOT FROM THE MOUNTAINS. EVENTUALLY, THEY CONVERTED THE TILAPIA FISHPOND AND RICE PLANTATION INTO A VINEYARD. AND IT IS SAID THAT THIS WAS ONE OF THE FIRST FEW LOTS CONVERTED USING THAT TECHNIQUE. IT WAS IN THE 1980S BACK THEN AND MY OLDER BROTHER DANNY WAS ONE OF THE FEW WHO SPEARHEADED THE PROJECT.
 
VO: AND WITHOUT ANY BACKGROUND OR KNOWLEDGE IN GROWING GRAPES, ACCORDING TO OUR FRIEND JOE, ALL THEIR METHODS AND TECHNIQUES WERE FORMED OUT OF TRIAL AND ERROR.
 
HE ADDS THAT EVEN WHEN THEY WERE STILL STARTING TO PLANT IN THE 1980S, HIS FATHER’S RIGHT HAND AND HELPER  AT THE FARM WAS HIS BROTHER DANNY.
 
HE (DANNY) WAS ONE OF THE FIRST FEW ONES WHO PLANTED GRAPES IN LA UNION.
 
VO GUEST: ALL OF [OUR DAD’S] TECHNIQUES IN PLANTING GRAPES, HE HANDED IT DOWN TO DANNY. HE (DANNY) WAS THE ONE WHO INHERRITED HIS PASSION WITH GRAPES.
 
VO: BECAUSE OF THE HUGE INTEREST IN PLANTING GRAPES WHICH HE INHERRITED FROM THEIR FATHER, DANNY STOPPED TAKING UP ENGINEERING IN COLLEGE TO POUR ALL HIS TIME AND EFFORT IN LEARNING THE METHODS AND TECHNOLOGY THEY COULD USE IN PLANTING GRAPES.
 
AND BECAUSE OF ALL DANNY LEARNED, HE WAS THE ONE WHO STOOD AS THE LEAD TECHNICIAN IN THEIR FARM.
 
ON CAM GUEST: WHEN OUR FATHER PASSED AWAY IN 2006, DANNY TOOK CARE OF ALL THE LAND AND PROPERTIES HE LEFT BEHIND AND HE (DANNY) CONTINUED TO MANAGE AND RUN THE VINEYEARD.
 
HE WAS THE ONE WHO SAVED OUR GRAPES, HE HUMBLY ACCEPTED THE RESPONSIBILITY OF BEING THE FATHER IN OUR VINEYARD.
 
VO: SINCE THEN, DANNY CONTINUED TO CULTIVATE AND DEVELOP THEIR GRAPEFARM. ALTHOUGH IT WAS NO EASY FEAT BECAUSE OF ALL THE STRUGGLES THEY HAD TO GO THROUGH, SUCH AS THE HUGE TYPHOON THAT DESTROYED THEIR FARM BACK IN 2007, THEY STOOD THEIR GROUND AND REMAINED UNSHAKEABLE.
THEY CONTINUED TO PLANT GRAPES BECAUSE ACCODRING TO THEM, THIS IS NOT MERELY THEIR SOURCE OF LIVING…
 
ON CAM GUEST: ALL OUR INCOME COMES 100% FROM THE MONEY WE MAKE OUR OF OUR GRAPES. THIS IS WHAT BUILT OUR HOUSE, WHAT SENT MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS TO SCHOOL, AND ALL OF THAT WHICH SUPPLIES OUR DAILY NEEDS WERE MADE POSSIBLE BY OUR GRAPES.
 
VO: IT IS ALSO HERE IN GROWING GRAPES THAT THEY ARE ABLE TO FIND THE GOOD MEMORIES OF THEIR LATE FATHER.
 
ACCORDING TO THEM, THEY ALSO CONTINUED TO GROW GRAPES IN ORDER TO PRESERVE THE LEGACY ESTABLISHED BY THEIR LATE FATHER IN THE 80S: THE REPUTATION OF THEIR FAMILY AS ONE OF THE FIRST FEW WHO PLANTED GRAPES IN THE PROVINCE OF LA UNION AND EVEN IN THE WHOLE PHILIPPINES.
 
NOW, BECAUSE OF THE DILIGENCE AND THE COURAGE TO CONTINUE WHAT THEIR FATHER STARTED, THEY WERE ABLE TO DEVELOP AND EXPAND THEIR VINEYARD. AND THEY’RE NOW ONE OF THE MOST RECOGNIZED GRAPE FARMS HERE IN LA UNION.
IN TRUTH, VISITORS, DISTINGUISHED GUESTS AND TOURISTS ALIKE, FLOCK TO THEIR VINEYARD TO SEE AND WITNESS IT’S BEAUTY AND TAKE PART IN THE BOUNTIFUL HARVEST OF THEIR PRIZED GRAPES.
 
IN ADDITION TO THAT, THEY WANT TO SHARE A LITTLE MORE…
 
ON CAM GUEST: (SPEAKING IN ILOCANO)
 
IT’S GOOD TO PLANT GRAPES IF YOU KNOW HOW. JUST TAKE GOOD CARE OF IT EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO SPEND A LOT, BECAUSE THE INCOME IT WILL GIVE BACK WILL SURPRISE YOU. 
 
VO: ACCORDING TO SIR DANNY, IT’S NOT THAT EASY TO GROW GRAPES, BUT IF YOU STRIVE REAL HEARD TO TAKE GOOD CARE OF IT, THE FRUITS YOU’LL HARVEST WILL TRULY TASTE SWEET.
 
ON CAM RUBEN: AS SYMBOLS OF UNWAVERING ENDURANCE, INNER STRENGTH, DILIGENCE AND PERSEVERANCE, FATHERS MUCH LIKE SIR CIRILO AND SIR DANNY BECOME HEROES IN THEIR OWN RIGHT. NOT ONLY IN OUR LIVES ARE THEY HEROES, THEY’RE ALSO HEROES IN THE SECTOR OF AGRICULTURE.
 
THAT IS WHY SIR DANNY AND SIR CIRILO, YOU TRULY ARE… AGRI BIDA!
 
TMSK VO: LEARN, HAVE FUN, EARN PROFIT, AND WIN LOAD FROM AGRI TAYO DITO!
AND FOR LAST WEEK’S QUESTION
OUR LUCKY KA-AGRI WINNERS ARE…
 
VO: AND FOR OUR QUESTION OF THE WEEK
JUST TEXT THE CORRECT LETTER OF THE ANSWER NAME ADDRESS
AND SEND IT TO THE AGRI TAYO DITO TEXT LINE
TWO OF OUR KA-AGRIS WILL HARVEST 500 WORTH OF CELLPHONE LOAD WEEKLY!
SO, KA-AGRI, SEND YOUR TEXTS HERE
 
ON CAM RUBEN: NOT ONLY ARE THEY SYMBOLS OF UNWAVERING ENDURANCE, DILIGENCE, AND DETERMINATION, THEY’RE ALSO OUR SOURCE OF GUIDANCE, STRENGTH, AND INSPIRATION. TO ALL THE FATHERS IN THE WHOLE WORLD: THANK YOU VERY MUCH AND WE SALUTE YOU! HAPPY FATHER’S DAY TO ALL DADS OUT THERE!
 
AND, OF COURSE, SEE YOU NEXT WEEK FOR ANOTHER BRAND NEW AGRI-KWENTO WE’LL BE SHARING WITH YOU! SO DON’T GO ANYWHERE!
 
AND TOGETHER WE’LL ALL LEARN, HAVE FUN, AND EARN MORE IN AGRICULTURE! DO YOU AGRI? (AGREE WORDPLAY)
 
OF COURSE! AGRI TAYO DITO!
 
AGRI TAYO DITO (SINGING)… WOW! CAKE! THANK YOU VERY MUCH! THANKS TO SWEET ADVOCATE AND TO MA’AM CHARISSE DAGOHOY! TO ALL THE FATHERS OUT THERE, THIS IS FOR YOU! HAPPY FATHER’S DAY! AGRI TAYO DITO…
