A farmer shows off the edamame (young soybeans) harvested for the first time in the Philippines from a 20-hectare farm in Barangay Talipapa, Cabanatuan, Nueva Ecija. Later, Agriculture Secretary William Dar (below, second from left, with hat) joins former Candava Mayor Gerry Pelayo, his son Raphael Pelayo, and young farmers Elaine Timbol and Jeff Fernandez to celebrate the crop bound for export to Japan. Edamame is ready for harvest after just 62 days.
