Abrenian farmers get P2.3M agri-inputs through HVCDP

PIDIGAN, Abra(PIA ) — Abrenian farmers received a total of P2.35 million farm inputs from the Department of Agriculture-Cordillera (DA-CAR) under the Corn Banner and High Value Crop Development Programs (HVCDP).

Farm equipment and machineries including pump and engines sets, hand tractors, plastic crates, and power sprayers were turned-over to around 36 farmers associations from the different municipalities of the province.

Congresswoman Ching Bernos, DA-CAR Regional Technical Director for Research and Regulatory Dr. Arlene M. Sagayao, DA-CAR Field Operations Division OIC Chief Marlyn Tejero, and Agricultural Program Coordinating Office Abra head Dr. Rosemarie Tesoro led the distribution of farm assistance at the Abra Vegetable Seed Growers Development Cooperative Office in Pidigan.

These interventions aim to aid farmers to boost the production of their crops towards better harvest and income.

Dagitoy nga equipment nga umay ditoy Abra ket naggapu ti national government babaen ti opisinak ket uray pay kasta, awan ti makita yo nga naipigkket nga nagan ko ta maited nga direkta kadakayo,” Bernos said.

[These farm equipment coming here in Abra are from the national government through my office, but  you do not see my name pasted in these machineries because it will be given directly to you]

Agtangao Farmers Association member Julie Adame said that the machineries will help them to increase their production.

Dakkel unay ti yaman mi ti inkam naawat nga machineries ta babaen ti tulong dagitoy, mapa-adu ti mula ken apit mi nga mannalon,” she said.

[We are so grateful for these machineries that we received which we will help increase our harvests]

The HVCDP provides production machinery and post-harvest equipment to qualified farmers’ associations and cooperatives in support of the DA’s farm mechanization program and also to promote farm efficiency.  (JDP/CAGT – PIA CAR, Abra)
