The Municipal Agriculture Office commenced a turn over ceremony after the flag raising activity at the Municipal Hall grounds, last Monday, July 22.
Six units of the mechanical rice transplanters were given to the following beneficiaries—Kudja Farmers Association, Guitas Farmers Association, CuRBADA Farmers Association, Upper Ilo-an Farmers Association, San Vicente USAD Farners Association, New Visayas Multi-Purpose Farmers Assocation.
A Mechanical Rice Transplanter aids the farmer by transplanting rice seedling onto paddy field. This specialized transplanter allows the modern farmer to take charge of his planting schedule without depending on seasonal labor.
Since our town’s main livelihood depends on farming, this would be a big help to our farmers, and to our economy as well.
