Occidental Mindoro Rep. Josephine Ramirez-Sato has hailed the enactment of her authored bill into law that seeks to expand organic farming in the country.

“Ang inakdang panukalang batas ni Cong. Nene Sato para amyendahan at palawakin ang Organikong Pagsasaka ay ganap ng batas,” the lawmaker’s office said

The said measure became Republic Act 11511 or “An Act Amending R.A. 10068 or The Organic Agriculture Act of 2010.”

The said measure was signed by President Rodrigo Duterte last December 23 and took effect on January 7.

“Layon ng batas na ito ang pagpapanumbalik ng likas na yaman ng lupa, pangangalaga sa kalikasan, kasiguruhan sa kalusugan ng mga magsasaka, ligtas at mas masustansyang pagkain, malagong ani at malaking kita para sa mga magsasaka,” the solon’s office said.

“Ito ang mga mahahalagang prinsipyo ng Organikong Pagsasaka, lalo na para sa OkSi na isa sa mga pangunahing lalawigang supplier ng produktong agrikultura,” it added.
