Department of Agriculture (DA) CALABARZON, in coordination with Quezon 2nd District Representative David “Jayjay” C. Suarez, has given P3.6-million worth of agricultural aide among 15 farmers’ groups in Tiaong, Quezon on June 19, 2020.
The distribution activity is part of the continuous implementation of DA CALABARZON’s agricultural support program for farmers under the CY 2020 regular fund.
DA CALABARZON’s agricultural support includes grafted cacao seedlings; complete fertilizers; farm materials (plastic crates, plastic mulch, plastic drums, and mesh net); machinery (hand tractor, floating tiller, transplanter, pump and engine, multi-cultivator, and knapsack sprayer); and native chickens.
“The agricultural inputs we brought here today are DA CALABARZON’s way of saying ‘thank you’ to every farmer who makes sure that food is sufficient and available to everyone,” said Mr. Dennis R. Arpia, Assistant Regional Director for Operations and Rice Program Coordinator, citing farmers and the agriculture sector as the country’s important assets. ● (JAPE, DA-RAFIS)
