DA opens 2 bayan anihan pilot sites in Kalinga

by Larry Lopez

Tabuk, Kalinga (12 November) -- The Department of Agriculture (DA) introduced bayan anihan program among farmers here by opening two pilot production sites in Barangays Agbannawag of Tabuk and Calaocan, Rizal.

Program In-Charge Teresita Desay of the Provincial Agriculturist Office (PAO) said bayan anihan is a component of DA's Gulayan para sa masa where organized farmer-beneficiaries are encouraged to venture into multi-crop production project.

The project requires a communal production area of at least 500 square meters to be provided by partner local government unit, according to Desay.

DA provides production materials like vegetable seeds, seedlings, organic fertilizer, and other support components in the form of irrigation facilities.

For the two pilot barangays, DA provided various certified vegetable seeds, citrus seedlings, tissue-cultured banana shoots, and herbal plants. But in Calaocan, because of the presence of irrigation source, DA provided small farm reservoir amounting to P25,000.

Beneficiaries in Barangay Agbannawag are recipient-families of the Gawad Kalinga housing project while those in Barangay Calaocan belong to the Prime Movers Club for Gulayan sa Calaocan, a group initially assisted by the Helen Keller Foundation.

Desay said beneficiaries were first given trainings and orientations on vegetable and multi-crop production technology before the project was opened in their area.

Today, the two groups are now supplying vegetables to Tabuk and Rizal, which usually get supply from outside places like Roxas, Isabela. (PIA-Kalinga) [top]
