LINGAYEN, Pangasinan – “Pag-aralan niyo po ang lahat ng bagay na makakatulong sa inyong organisasyon at sa inyong sarili at gagawin po naming lahat ng aming makakaya upang maibigay ang karapat-dapat at bawat isang benepisyo ay makarating sa inyo.”

This was disclosed by Governor Amado I. Espino, III as he led the awarding of the 80 units of shallow tube wells (STWs) to various farmers’ and irrigators’ associations in the province held at the Provincial Agriculture Office Nursery in Tebag, Sta. Barbara on May 17.

In saying this, Gov. Espino pointed out that each beneficiary plays a significant role in the progress of his organization and thus, expanding the agricultural productivity in Pangasinan.

“Make your organization legitimate and recognized by the provincial government to avail the programs and enjoy the benefits from the government,” said Gov. Espino as he pledged full support to agricultural undertakings that will further promote farmers’ interests and efficiency.

As such, he exhorted the recipients of the STWs to also complete their requirements to avail of the Philippine Rural Development Program (PRDP), a special program of Department of Agriculture (DA) which intends to strengthen the agricultural sector through the establishment of needed rural infrastructure and other livelihood community projects.
