SAN CARLOS CITY ACQUIRES NEW FARM TRACTOR
San Carlos City Agriculturist’s Office received another farm tractor from the national government thru the Department of Agriculture (DA) delivered last Sept. 29, 2016.
City Agriculturist Devitt Dollosa said the budget for said farm equipment which was worth P2.3M was shouldered by DA in the amount of P2,070,000 while the city government of San Carlos only contributed P230,000 as counterpart.
Agriculture Technologist Prudencio Bayawa, Jr. on the other hand said that the farm tractor was part of the DA corn program called Agri-Pinoy. He said the tractor makes the tilling of soil and cultivation much easier, hence, it will be opened for rent to the farmers in the amount of P600.00 per hour and P52.00 for travel time cost per kilometer.
He said as of now the City Agriculture Office has already two farm tractors.
