CotProv gives forest tree seedlings, laminated sacks to various groups

Amas, Kidapawan City  – The rainy season has never stopped the provincial government to implement projects and programs, more so in agriculture.

In fact, the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist (OPAg) has been conducting significant activities to cope with the rainy season and keep agriculture dynamic in the province.

Most recently, covering the period July 3-14, a total of 13,700 assorted forest tree seedlings to be used for tree planting activities in various parts of the province were distributed to different recipient-groups namely: Datu Ladayon, Arakan (3,000 seedlings); Manubuan, Matalam (500 seedlings); Municipal Environment and Natural Resources Office (MENRO) – Alamada; and to Cotabato Police Provincial Office (200 seedlings).

The said activity is part of the Cotabato Provincial Forest and Ecotourism Park project under the Environment and Natural Resources Division of the OPAg.

A series of distribution of makeshift driers or net laminated sacks (trapal) were also conducted by the said office to help rice and corn farmers who lack post-harvest facilities to dry their farm produce.  The said sacks can also be used during rice threshing to minimize losses.

This program on the other hand, is aimed to address the farmers’ problem on low market value of their grains due to low milling quality as a result of the lack of immediate facility to be used to dry their grains.

Farmer-beneficiaries of the program were from the municipalities of Mlang and Tulunan where more than 300 famers availed of the said distribution.

The provincial government, under the leadership of Cotabato Governor Emmylou “Lala” J. Taliño-Mendoza with its Serbisyong Totoo advocacy, has intensified agriculture development programs for the past seven years.//Laurifel Q. Gonzales//
