Through the effort of the City Agriculture and Veterinary Office, various farm machineries including 6 units of Hand Tractors, 1 Rice thresher and 1 reaper were awarded to farmers from Barangays San Felipe, Pandaras, Magliman, Calulut, Maimpis and Quebiawan on May 16.
OIC-City Agriculturist Cristina Sangumay said the machineries cost a total of 1.1 Million pesos.
“600,000 pesos was allocated by the Local Government of San Fernando while the remaining 500,000 pesos was funded by the Department of Agriculture,” she explained.
In his speech, Mayor Edwin Santiago said the program seeks to help farmers by providing efficient and modern farm technologies.
“These machineries lessen production cost and allow easier and timely operations of the farmers,” Santiago added.
Meanwhile, also present during the awarding of Farm Machineries were Vice Mayor Jimmy Lazatin, Councilor Nelson Lingat, DILG Ofiicer Jose Algy Canlas and Barangay Officials from the selected Barangays.
