In his message, Department of Agriculture (DA) – RFO 10 Regional Executive Director Carlene C. Collado appealed to the leaders of each town to be supportive of DA’s projects.

“The LGUs’ roles in the implementation of DA projects are indispensable. We need your help especially in fast-tracking the crafting of resolutions to hasten the project implementation,” Collado said.

He also challenged the LGUs to be keen on proposing direly needed agricultural interventions in their towns.

“We hope the projects granted to your LGUs will be well-taken care of for the advantage of the farmers,” he remarked.

In his part, Mayor Agne V. Yap of Baliangao boasts the DA-granted assistance to his town.

“The people of Baliangao are extremely delighted with the assistance provided by the DA. This assistance will be instrumental to the improvement of our town,” Mayor Yap declared.

“As recipients, we should take good care of the projects so that DA will grant us more assistance in the future,” added Mayor Yap, urging his constituents to value the granted projects.

Now on its third-year implementation in Northern Mindanao, SAAD aims to capacitate newly form FAs to venture into enterprising agricultural activities as its priority agricultural livelihood project this year. ###
