Dinagat supports organic farming

by Lito A. Apelo

Butuan City (27 November) -- The Provincial Government of Dinagat Islands under the leadership of Governor Jade B. Ecleo is now pushing for organic farming in this water-locked province to intensify production and mitigate hunger.

A Five Million Pesos (P5M) worth of organic liquid fertilizer is now being distributed by the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist (OPAg), headed by Oswaldo T. Borja. This project is part of the Provincial Government's effort to enhance our land resources through organic farming.

The Crops Division Chief Alan S. Azares earlier said that the fertilizer has been procured by the Provincial Government of Dinagat Islands to augment the basic services intended for the farmers. He added that the Crops Division is now on the process of promoting organic farming in every municipality through information caravans. Each municipality is encouraged to put up demo farms where the liquid fertilizer will be utilized. (OPA, Province of Dinagat Islands/ PIA-Caraga) [top]
