Author: DA-AFID | 20 September 2019

A total of P480.24 million – worth of farm machineries were turned over to farmer-members of the Irrigators’ and Farmers’ Association of Northern Mindanao on September 16, 2019 in Bukidon.  The assistance include mechanized equipment to aid farmers in their daily farm activities, improve productivity and increase income.

For many years, the Department of Agriculture has exhausted resources to improve the quality and increase the volume of rice production. In the activity, Agriculture Secretary William Dar stressed that it is important to carry out an organized and systematic value chain approach to transform farmers from mere producers to agri-businessmen.
