To ensure their economic well-being, farmers and fisherfolks from Tarlac City’s 62 villages will start undergo training on farming and fishing training.
This is aside the hybrid rice plants farmers will start receiving soon.
“Agriculture is the priority of my administration brcause it is the source of livehood by majority of the Tarlaqueños. We are doing all-out efforts to give them additional support,” Mayor Cristy Angeles said.
Earlier, Tarlac City agriculturist Susan Concepcion said some P5.3 million worth of farm inputs and machineries were already distributed to the farmers under the Bottom-up Budgeting Program of the Department of Agriculture and Department of Interior and Local Government.
Among those received by the farmers from the different villages here were four rice reapers, 15 shallow tube wells, 40 veggie noodles-making machines, 13 tinapa-making smoke houses and one packing machine.
Meanwhile, some 4,430 farmers received subsidized hybrid seeds, vegetable seeds, fertilizers, 35 Nubian hybrid goats, 25 fishing nets, crop insurance and transistor radios for the Farmers Field School graduates.
Concepcion said that seminars and training on goat raising and smoked fish making were also conducted.
