Gov. Espino distributes fertilizers to farmers and irrigators from districts III and IV


Lingayen, Pangasinan — Governor Amado I. Espino, III recently led the distribution of 2,700 bags of fertilizers to farmers and irrigators from 58 farmers’ organizations in districts III and IV.

The mass distribution of fertilizers forms part of the rehabilitation assistance of the provincial government to the farmers and irrigators for them to recover from their product loss due to the devastation of typhoon “Ompong” and habagat last year.

Addressing the beneficiary groups during the distribution of fertilizers held on March 6 at the Provincial Agriculture Center in Tebag, Sta. Barbara, Governor Espino noted the contribution of farmers and irrigators to the food security of the province.

A farmer himself, the governor told the farmers and fisherfolks to be resilient when mishaps happen in their agricultural or fishery venture, further urging them to take good care of their health conditions

“Ang magandang samahan ng mga opisyales ng provincial government, kasama ang mga bokal ng Sangguniang Panlalawigan ang dahilan ng lahat ng mga magagandang programa na ating inilunsad at patuloy na pinapalawig,” Governor Espino said.

Joining the Governor in distributing the bags of fertilizers were: Vice Governor Jose Ferdinand Z. Calimlim, Jr., Board Members Jeremy Agerico Rosario, Liberato Villegas, and former Board Member Angel Baniqued Sr.

Meanwhile, OIC Provincial Agriculturist Nestor Batalla bared that the distribution of fertilizers in districts I, and VI are also scheduled this March to be held at the Provincial Agriculture field stations in Alaminos City, and San Quintin, respectively.

It was last March 1 in Bugallon when Governor Espino, III led the mass distribution of farm inputs (which included bags of fertilizers for farmers, and bags feeds for fisherfolks), along with the awarding of project interventions, under the Philippine Rural Development Project (PRDP), to farmers and fisherfolks from the second district of the province.

Farmers and irrigators from district V also received bags of fertilizers during the distribution program held on March 5 at Villasis gymnasium, which was led by Governor Espino, 5th district Congressman Amado Espino, Jr. and local officials of the said town.
