Tobacco farmers seek higher prices of leaves

Tobacco farmers from Ilocos Sur and Ilocos Norte call on the government to raise the floor price of tobacco leaves to P128 per kilo as the National Tobacco Administration holds a consultative conference on the setting of floor prices of the product, in Quezon City on Wednesday. The protesters also want government assistance to help them cope with rising prices of basic goods and services.
