The Municipal Agriculture Office (MAO) led the awarding of agricultural machinery to the town’s farmer associations in line with LGU-Camalig’s implementation of sustainable agriculture strategies amid the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
A total of six (6) units of rice reapers were handed to Quinartilan Camalig Farmers & Irrigators Association (QCFIA), Libod-Bascaran Farmer’s Association (LIBAFA), and Tumpa Farmers Association – each farmers association received two (2) units.
The provision of farming machineries also forms part of LGU-Camalig’s advocacy in strengthening its farming systems by which effective conduct of plans and programs will eventually redound to improved earning capabilities and food on the table for every family.
