DA 12 distributes certified palay seeds to flood victims in North Cotabato

KORONADAL CITY, South Cotabato, July 19 (PIA) — Rice farmers who were affected by recent floods in North Cotabato received aids, in the form of certified palay seeds, from the Department of Agriculture (DA) – 12.

DA 12 Regional Executive Director Amalia Jayag- Datukan told Philippine Information Agency 12 that a total of 120 bags of palay seeds were delivered to the homes of farmer recipients in Carmen, Kabacan, and Pikit towns.

Marang-ay Irrigator’s Association and Amianan Irrigators’ Association , both in Carmen town received 20 sacks each.

Division 5 and Division 6 Irrigators’ Associations in adjacent Kabacan also received the same allocation while the Bagonabati Irrigators’ Association in Pikit town was provided 40 sacks of palay seeds.

Delivery of these help to farmers was done last week.

Jayag-Datukan explained the seeds, were intended to help farmers immediately restart their rice-growing activities after their crops were washed out by flood waters.

The aids were delivered directly to the farmers, she explained, to make sure that the certified palay seeds are received by the intended farmers who were earlier assessed and verified to have lost their crops because of flooding.

Transporting the goods right where the farmers are is also much appreciated by the farmers who realized that the government is committed and ready to assist them in times of need.

Jerry Manalo, chairman of Barangay Aringay in Kabacan said, farmers in his area are very thankful for the very immediate response of DA 12.

Because of the assistance, farmers in his area of responsibility are most likely to immediately recover their losses from the calamity.

Beneficiaries of the aid were among the over 10,000 families who were affected by floods brought about by southwest moon in mid-June.

Besides the mentioned towns, the flood also affected several barangays in Matalam, Mlang, President Roxas and Tulunan towns in North Cotabato and Montawal in Maguindanao, ARMM. (DEDoguiles-PIA 12/LMSalvo-DA 12)
