DAGUPAN FARMERS GET FERTILIZER FROM DA

DAGUPAN CITY – As part of the continuing support of the Department of Agriculture to Dagupan City, a total of 153 farmers from seven barangays received 325 sacks of ammonium sulfate as fertilozer for their crops under the DA’s rehabilitation program started in mid last year.

The basic basal fertilizer will be used in some 155 hectares of replanted crop lands damaged during the onslaught of Typhoon ‘Inday’ last year.

Each beneficiary from barangays Mangin, Tebeng, Salisay, Bolosan, Lucao, Malued and Bonuan Boquig received two sacks of ammonium sulfate  per hectare of land they were tilling.

The beneficiaries earlier received 155 sacks of certified palay seeds from the DA sometime in August last year.

All these are part of the DA’s rehabilitation program which  continues to assist farmers greatly affected during the monsoon season last year. (Verdelle De Vera/CIO)
