The DA-Central Luzon Integrated Agricultural Research Center for Upland Development (CLIARC) in collaboration with the Porac Local Government Unit conducted the Field Day on Purple Yam Production in Brgy. Inararo, Porac, Pampanga on 29 November 2023.

 The partner-farmers Warlita King, Lino Muñoz, and Albert David, members of Sama-sama sa Kaunlaran para sa Pagsulong ng Barangay Ayta Inararo, shared their experiences and learnings gleaned through the season long training spearheaded by DA-CLIARC UD and Benguet State University.
