The province of Occidental Mindoro will receive almost P300 million (M) worth of projects and programs from the Department of Agriculture this year.

This was the commitment of Agriculture Secretary William Dar during the Provincial Agriculture and Fishery Summit on January 21, 2020 in San Jose, Occidental Mindoro.

During the summit, Dar committed P70M for agriculture and P54M for the fisheries sector. He also allocated P51M for the unconditional cash transfer, which will be released under the Rice Farmers’ Financial Assistance (RFFA) Program.

A total of P218,929 in indemnity checks from the Philippine Crop Insurance Corporation were distributed, as well as 30 units of 20-footer Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) boat, fishing gears, and seaweed seedlings worth P820,000 from the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources.

A total of P2.60 million in incentive was awarded to coconut farmers who participated in the Participatory Coconut Planting Project of the Philippine Coconut Authority last year. (Photos by Alarico Nuestro, DA-AFID)
