Support local! Gov. Dolor distributes equipment to farmers
Oriental Mindoro Gov. Humerlito Dolor led the distribution of agricultural equipment to farmers in the province.
The said distribution was part of the initiative of the Provincial Government to support local farmers.
“Naging sandalan ng ekonomiya ng lalawigan ang sektor ng sakahan sa panahon ng pangangailan. Kaya naman, mas dapat nating pahalagahan ang ating mga magsasaka at kanilang nasasakupan,” Gov. Dolor said.
The Department of Agriculture (DA) and Philippine Center for Postharvest Development and Mechanization (PhilMech) as well as the Capitol teamed up to make the event a possibility.
Recipients of equipment were farmers from Baco, Pola San Teodoro, Socorro, Victoria and Calapan City.
The equipment include the following:
12 units of Four Wheel Tractor
29 units of Hand Tractor
6 units of Floating Tiller
1 unit of Rice Precision Seeder
1 unit of Walk-behind Transplanter
4 units of Combine Harvester
“Pag-ingatan nawa ng iba’t ibang asosasyon ng mga magsasaka ang mga biyayang natanggap.
Abangan po natin ang Batch 2!
Patuloy ang BAYANIHAN sa LALAWIGAN,” the Capitol said.
