Gov’t explores new technique to improve farmers’ yield

TO FURTHER  improve the farmers’ yield in Davao Region, the government through the Department of Agriculture (DA) is currently studying a new technology called the wet and dry technique under various weather conditions.

This was announced during President Ferdinand Marcos Jr.’s keynote speech on June 6 at Tagum City. 

The President also led the distribution of farmers’ and fisherfolks’ aid affected by El Niño in Davao del Sur.

He also reassured the region to continuously support its agricultural sector by exploring techniques that will boost its productivity.

Ang pamahalaan ay nandito at laging handang umalalay at magbigay ng tulong lalo na sa panahon ng kagipitan,” he stated.

More than 4,000 individuals, or approximately 1,000 families, in Malalag and Sta. Cruz, Davao del Sur were affected by the dry spell, which has caused over PhP50 million in crop damage.

Donations to Davao del Sur beneficiaries included hybrid rice facilities and machinery. Corn farmers received three units of huskers and shellers, while coconut seedlings were also distributed. 

In the same way, fisherfolks were provided with motorized bangkas.

The President was also accompanied by Special Assistant to the President Antonio Ernesto Lagdameo Jr., Mindanao Development Authority Secretary Leo Tereso Magno, Department of Interior and Local Government Secretary Benjamin Abalos Jr., DA Secretary Francisco Laurel Jr., and Department of Social Welfare and Development Secretary Rex Gatchalian.
