PDFPrintE-mail

BATO, Catanduanes - President Benigno S. Aquino III expressed confidence that the country will be exporting high-grade variety of rice by next year as he bared the millions of pesos worth of government allotment to further improve the agricultural yield of farmers, here.

In an ambush interview following the inauguration of the Solong and Hitoma 1 Hydroelectric Power Plants and the Philippine Atmospheric Geophysical Astronomical Services Administration’s (PAGASA) New Radar Tower Station in Barangay Buenavista, here, on Wednesday, President Aquino said that a better irrigation system and the government’s certified seed program are some of the important components to further improve the country’s agricultural harvest.

The Chief Executive said that the Department of Agriculture (DA) has already allotted 52 million pesos for the developmental agriculture programs of the Province of Catanduanes’.

“Dito ho sa Catanduanes mismo, mayroong allotment po ang Department of Agriculture for 2012 na P52-million for agriculture, fishery, infrastructure, and livelihood projects and farm equipment and inputs para makadagdag sa agrikultura po ninyo,” President Aquino noted.

The funds, the President said, will be broken down and spent into several tranches to ensure that various agricultural needs will be addressed.
“Of that total amount, 30-million of P52-million will be used to complete the communal irrigation system in Bañaga, Bato. 91 hectares, 185 farm families. Pinapa-fast track po ni Secretary Alcala ang initial P15-million of that P30-million]to be spent this year and the balance to be spent by next year,” he said.

The President also said that apart from this, the National Irrigation Authority has also allotted P42,803,000 for the rehabilitation of irrigation systems in 15 municipalities in the area.

The certified palay seed production program is part of DA's Agri-Pinoy Rice program, which covers trainings and updating of seed growers on palay seed production technologies with emphasis on palay morphology, cultural management practices, postharvest technologies, economics and sustainability of palay seed production.
