PIA Press Release

Ifugao town institutionalizes Farmers' Day

by Vency D. Bulayungan

Kiangan, Ifugao (17 October) -- Farmers organizations here institutionalized a day for them to celebrate together as they work towards uplifting their economic situation.

Municipal Agriculture Officer William Buhiong said the Farmers' Day is conceptualized by the farmers themselves for them to get together as a sector.

The institutionalization of the Farmers' Day is supported by the municipal government which allocated funds for this activity which was participated by about 250 farmers from the 15 barangays here.

Mr. Jack Dulnuan, former farmer turned businessman, in his message encouraged the farmers to be entrepreneurs. He said that industriousness is a key to improve one's economic status in life.

A native of Asipulo, who has migrated to La Trinidad, Benguet, Dulnuan said that it was trough hardship and perseverance that he was able to rise above poverty.

Dulnuan is the owner of the chain of Jack's Restaurant in Baguio City and La Trinidad, Benguet.

Dulnuan encouraged the farmers to engage in other income generating activities such as planting fruit trees. He pointed out that the province is suited for fruit production which can be an additional source of income to farmers. "There is money in farming for as long as you know how to make use of all the available resources in your locality," he said.

Meanwhile, Mayor Jonathan Cuyahon and Vice Mayor Angelito Dulinayan gave their support to the Farmers Information Technology Services (FITS) of the Agriculture Department.

This is a learning center where farmers can upgrade their skills in modern technology which can increase their harvests. A Memorandum of Agreement with the Sangguniang Bayan here was signed with the Philippine Council for Agriculture Forestry and Natural Resources Development (PICARD). (PIA-Ifugao) [top]
