Mayor Lacson distributes P3.1M agri equipment to farmers
Magalang Mayor Malu Paras-Lacson on September 7 led the distribution of P3.1 million worth of agriculture machinery to local farmers.
The Pampanga politiko, through the Department of Agriculture (DA), gave hand tractors and rice drum seeders to the farmers to boost their productivity.
“Gusto natin mag-increase ang productivity nila in terms of harvest in lesser time. Kung tao ang gagawa ay matatagalan pero kung may hand tractor sila ay mas mapapabilis ang pagtatrabaho sa lupang kanilang sinasaka,” Lacson said.
Lacson said the municipal government is prioritizing assistance to farmers since Magalang is an agricultural town.
“We are an agricultural town so lahat ng assistance na nanggagaling sa national government para sa mga magsasaka ay aming binababa sa kanila. Ito ay mga idea ng local government na funded ng BUB,” She said.
