Through the years, the company has always been adamant in acting to meet its mission and vision for farmers and Filipino communities to achieve better lives both via its business operations and through corporate social responsibility.
The company values education and believes in the empowerment it gives. For the second year in 2014, LEADS Agri was a Silver Sponsor to the UP Barkada and University of the Philippines Alumni Association’s (UPAA) Golf Tournament.
UP OPEN Golf Tournament “FoRE UP” was held last November 21, 2014 Valley Golf & Country Club, Antipolo, Rizal. At a time when the government funding for the University is on decline, initiatives like this is seen as valuable by the company, thus, LEADS Agri generously extends its support. 2013’s theme was “Make it Better Fore UP” and one of the beneficiaries is the UPAA & UP Barkada Scholarship Grant. The educational grant was awarded to underprivileged but deserving students and intended to provide financial assistance to student victims of violence inside the campus. In 2014, more than a hundred accredited UP beneficiaries received the much needed aid.
The photos from 2014 event were just sent early this year and the company is happy to have been part of this endeavor.
As part of the Sales Caravan where a series of 180 meetings have been held, a final meeting was conducted in La Trinidad, Benguet. Around 60 cutflower, strawberry, and upland vegetable farmers, financiers and land owners joined the event. Ms. Eva Dulcina T. Omaweng, owner of ABL Farm Supply also graced the event.
It was a very interactive meeting as several attendees excitedly gave out suggestions, asked questions, and shared experiences. It was a good avenue for the group to converge and share best practices. The room was filled with laughter from time to time as our sales team and the attendees threw in punch after punch of funny jokes.
The big meeting in Benguet was packed with good words for LEADS Agri. The following attendees gave testimonials to the group on how LEADS Agri Products are creating favorable effects on their yield:
Mr. Arturo Tudias, tomato grower, planting salad tomato, table tomato and tomato paste, accounted that LEADS products like Leadonil, Manager, and Pleo are very effective and he has proven and tested it through time. While there were some questions raised on the difficulty of mixing Manager, he claims that by closely following the instructions and dosage printed on its container, Manger is easy to use. The financier-grower said that he has no questions about the efficiency of LEADS Agri products.
Mr. Domingo, land owner and farmer of a cutflower garden, and grand winner of and Elf truck in the previous promo, Kasangga ni Pandoy, attended the meeting and gave a testimonial on the continued effectiveness of LEADS Agri Products.

This particular time is harvest season for most of the upland farmers. This leaves the farmers really busy during the day. In some of the meetings, the team went to the gardens and happily helped with the vegetative, harvesting, and post-harvest practices. The farmers are genuinely kind that they would always share some produce to the team. Here are some of the photos taken during the 3-day event.
Post-harvest practice: Radish washing being done before bringing the goods to the trading post.
180 Meetings were successfully done in three days.
