NVizcaya approves P1 million for agri-modernization program

BAYOMBONG, Nueva Vizcaya (19 October) -- "The provincial government will provide a P1 million counterpart intended for the purchase of a hand tractor for farmers here.

In a resolution on Wednesday (October 18), the provincial board authorized governor Luisa Cuaresma to enter into a memorandum of agreement with the Department of Agriculture - Regional Field Unit (DA-RFU) in Tuguegarao City for the purchase of a hand tractor worth P2.5 million.

The move, board member Glen Afan said is anchored on the provincial government's pursuit on agricultural modernization and enhancement of agricultural production in the province.

The amount would augment the fund of the DA which earlier pledged P1.5 million through regional director Gumersindo Lasam.

The P1 million counterpart fund of the provincial government will come from the capital outlay of provincial agriculturist Felipe Panganiban who made initial talks with Lasam regarding the project.

According to board member Patricio Dumlao, the hand tractor would also complement the P8 million corn planter which was earlier purchased by the provincial government through the Economic Development committee (ECODEV) of the Provincial Development Council (PDC).

"This will be a big help since the corn planter, to be fully operational needs the hand tractor," Dumlao said. (PIA NVizcaya) [top]
