Lingayen, Pangasinan — The province of Pangasinan under the leadership of Governor Amado I. Espino, III is eyeing to bag the hall of fame distinction for the national quality corn achievers awards.

This year, the province of Pangasinan is optimistic to receive quality corn achievers award and qualify for the hall of fame status for receiving same awards in three consecutive years

(2016, 2017, 2018). The province also bagged the said award in 2013, and 2014 but fell short in 2015.

The Office of the Provincial Agriculturist (OPAg), along with the key players of the Province’s corn industry were in full force during the national validation for the said awards, which was held on September 26 at the Sison Auditorium, here.

Representing Governor Espino, 4th district Board Member Liberato Z. Villegas lauded the collective efforts of government workers and corn farmers in propelling the province’s corn industry.

“Let this award inspire us to work further for our families, our organizations, and our province,” BM Villegas said.

Leading the national validating team, Ms. Yolanda Abrina of the Bureau of Soils and Water Management hinted on the successful bid of the province of Pangasinan in the said search.

“Of the five provinces which submitted their entries, Pangasinan garnered the highest score,” Abrina said.

“Nanliit ako sa dami ng tao, ganda ng venue (ng national validation), at ng mainit ninyong pagtanggap,” said Abrina, who admitted that she was overwhelmed with how Pangasinan prepared for the national validation.

OIC Provincial Agriculturist Dalisay Moya led the presentation of the scrap book of the province for the said search.

Also present during the national validation were Acting Provincial Agriculturist Nestor Batalla, and Corn Cluster Provincial President Katho Moreno.
