In the name of public service, and proving that commitment to work does not end on weekends, DA-RFO I Regional Executive Director Lucrecio R. Alviar Jr. and staff facilitated the distribution of around P30 million worth of farm machineries and equipment which
were distributed today at the Candon City Hall to farmer association-recipients of District 2 of the Province of Ilocos Sur. Said farm machineries were funded under the Farm Mechanization Program of the Department of Agriculture which aims to increase the productivity and income of farmers and help contribute to the attainment of DA's goal for Food sufficiency and security.
Distributed were a total of seventy one (71) units farm machineries and equipment consist of four-wheel drive tractor, hand tractor, combine harvester, rice thresher, & pump and engine set and two multiplier farm project under the livestock banner program of DA.
Ilocos Sur 2nd District Congressman and House of Representatives Deputy Speaker Eric D. Singson assisted Director Alviar in the ceremonial distribution of said machineries. Both key officials encouraged the farmers that although said project awarded to them were given as a full grant, they still need to provide a counterpart by way of ensuring that said farm machineries will be properly taken cared of and must benefit the entire association to the fullest.
