LGU-Cantilan commends DA for tangible assistance to farmers

CANTILAN, Surigao del Sur -- Local Chief Executive Philip Pichay of the Local Government Unit of Cantilan of this province commended  the tangible assistance of the Department of Agriculture Caraga to the local farmers, during the opening program of the two-day Fertilizer Discount Voucher (FDV) Distribution in the LGU starting today, February 9 until February 10, 2023. 

A total of 476 rice farmers from the LGU have received the fertilizer discount vouchers from the DA - Rice Program. The voucher will be utilized to purchase urea fertilizers (46-0-0) from the partner fertilizer merchants.

According to the LCE, the program is in line with the LGU's Fertilizer Subsidy Program which aims to help local farmers increase rice production and minimize  production costs by providing fertilizer inputs. The program also cushions the potential impacts of the under-application of urea fertilizer to palay production and sustain the suffiiciency of rice supply in the country.
