Gov. Alfredo Marañon, Jr. yesterday turned over pumps and engines to 14 farmer associations under the Department of Agriculture and his administration’s mechanization program to sustain the increasing rice production in the province.

Former provincial DILG chief Rosemarie Caunca, now president of the Irrigator’s Federation of Negros Occidental, said the support to farmers is testimonial to Marañon’s commitment for a rice self-sufficient Negros Occidental, which is now ranked No. 9 in production output nationwide from being reliant on import before.

The new equipment will benefit 424 farmers, who are tilling a total of 576.43 hectares of rice land, said Engr. Albert Barogo of the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist.

Also at the turnover rites at the steps of the Capitol building was OPA head, Engr. Igmedio Tabianan.

“We must be thankful that God is giving us a good weather, and has spared us from calamities; we will eventually minimize our losses because of the farm mechanization technology implemented by the province,” Marañon told the farmer-beneficiaries.

Caunca, on the other hand, cited the governor’s Food Security thrust under the Negros First!, saying that “as a governor, a farmer, and a leader, he is making sure that the programs and projects of the government goes directly to the beneficiaries, giving priority to the poor.”

“We are happy that we are together with the governor and we expect him to continue the same projects through the years,” Caunca added.
