Fernando bares plans to boost food security, agri sector in Bulacan
Bulacan Governor Daniel Fernando spoke of his future plans for the development of food security and agriculture in the province.
During the awarding and distribution of High Value Crops Development Program (HVCDP) intervention for farmers affected by Typhoon Quinta and Ulysses held at the capitol, the governor said he plans to develop not only a Farmer’s Training School but also establish a Farmer’s Productivity Center and Provincial Government Multiplier and Breeding Center.
The project to be located in a 25-hectare land in Doña Remedios Trinidad is seen to capacitate the farmers on new farming technology, according to the governor.
“We need to improve our agriculture. Palalakasin natin ito at hihikayatin ang mga kabataan na mag-focus sa farming,” Fernando said.
“Kailangan natin palakasin ang agrikultura at ang pangingisda dahil iyan lamang ang pagkukuhanan natin in case of emergency. Kailangan natin tutukan ang pagkain: ang gulay, palay, bigas, hayop at isda,” the governor said.
He also called on the farmers to teach their children to farm to sustain the agriculture sector.
“Hindi pwedeng puro abroad. Nasa Bulacan po ang yaman. Kung magsisikap po tayo pare-parehas, hindi tayo magugutom. Wag po kayong mag-alala, nakaalalay ang Provincial Government sa inyo at tutulungan namin kayo sa abot ng aming makakaya,” Fernando added.
