Agriculture Secretary Proceso J. Alcala (insert, 3rd from left) hands over a symbolic key to Palawan Governor Abraham Kahlil Mitra (inset, left), commencing the turnover of various farm equipment—consisting of a 4-wheel tractor, water pump engine sets for shallow tube wells (foreground), and shredders for organic fertilizer composting facilities—under the Department of Agriculture’s counterparting program with Palawan local government units (LGUs), farmers’ and fishers’ cooperatives,  and agri-fishery industry stakeholders. It was part of a ‘Provincial Agriculture Summit,’ organized by Gov. Mitra, October 1, at the provincial capitol, where Sec. Alcala held a four-hour consultation with about 500 farmers, fishers, provincial and municipal agriculturists and extension workers, provincial board members, municipal mayors, and officials and staff of DA agencies in Region 4B (MIMAROPA). Since July, the DA chief has visited seven regions, consulting directly with farmers, fisherfolk, provincial governors, congressmen, municipal mayors, and LGU agriculturists and extension workers. Also shown (inset, from left) are Palawan provincial agriculturist engineer Teresita Guian, provincial board member Gil Acosta, DA-4B regional technical director Yvonne Vinas, and director Silvino Tejada of the DA-Bureau of Soils and Water Management. # # # (Kathrino Resurreccion, DA Info Service)
