ATOK, BENGUET - Frost has already affected some vegetable crops in Benguet as temperature continue to drop.
Atok, Benguet Mayor Raymundo Sarac said, the farmers already knew what they would do to prevent crop damage even if the temperature in the province continue to drop.
According to him, the supply of vegetables coming to their town for sale elsewhere for the holiday season was sufficient.
