Magtanim ay di biro! Naujan Mayor Mark Marcos distributes seeds to storm-affected farmers


The song says planting rice is never fun, but it is definitely a necessity.

Naujan Mayor Mark Marcos made sure that farmers in his town affected by recent storms and heavy rains would still be able to earn a living by distributing hybrid seeds to them.

The distribution of the hybrid palay seeds through the Municipal Agriculture Office is part oft he local government’s rehabilitation efforts after the heavy rains.

Many farmers were affected by the deluge, so the seeds are expected to be a big help.

After all, they can’t harvest anything if they have nothing to plant in the first place.

“Namahagi kahapon ng binhi ng palay (hybrid seeds) sa ating mga magsasaka ang pamahalaan sa pamamagitan ng Municipal Agriculture Office bilang bahagi ng ating isinasagawang rehabilitasyon sanhi ng nakaraang pagbaha dulot ng walang tigil na pag-ulang dala ni bagyong Josie,” Marcos posted on Facebook.
