November 16, 2021
Governor Amado I. Espino III led the distribution of various agricultural and fishery inputs for local farmers and fisherfolks on November 9 at the Narciso Ramos Sports and Civic Center (NRSCC).
The project worth P14.4 million forms part of the rehabilitation assistance under the Abig Pangasinan Program.
Priority beneficiaries for the agri-fishery inputs were Pangasinense farmers and fisherfolks that were affected by different calamities in the province.
In his message, Governor Espino highlighted that projects and programs intended to assist the agriculture sector were already conducted since the administration of former Governor Amado T. Espino Jr. and the agri program has been expanded in his term.
“Itong ganitong programa na para sa inyo ay hindi lamang ngayon. Noong panahon pa po ito ng ating former Governor Amado T. Espino Jr. Hindi lamang nating tinutuloy, dinadagdagan pa natin ang programa. Hindi naman pinapabayaan ang aming trabaho at iyan ang kinikilala ng national government,” said Governor Espino.
Provincial Agriculturist Dalisay Moya further explained that the Provincial Government is keen on providing programs and projects for local farmer and fishery sector to increase the agricultural productivity in Pangasinan.
“Sa ilalim ng administrasyon ni Gov. Pogi Espino, tuloy-tuloy ang mga programang ito kasi isa sa mga prayoridad ay pagtaas ng agricultural productivity sa lalawigan ng Pangasinan. Tuloy-tuloy ang pagbibigay ng suporta sa ating mga farmers and livestock raisers, at fisherfolks,” said Provincial Agriculturist Dalisay Moya.
Governor Espino bared that the unhampered assistance of the Provincial Government of Pangasinan to the agriculture sector is commended by the national government.
“Palagi pong pinipili ng Department of Agriculture na dito i-launch ang kanilang programa dahil sinasabi nila palagi na ang Pangasinan ay maayos mag-host ng mga programa, maayos ang pamamalakad sa pagsasaka at magagaling ang mga magsasaka ng Probinsya ng Pangasinan,” Gov. Espino stated.
Among the inputs that were distributed to local farmers and fisherfolks and different local government units were: 5,000 bags of 20-kg certified palay seeds, 750 bags of various kinds of hybrid yellow corn, 60 knapsack sprayers, 140 gill nets, 20 fish shelters, 30 fish pots, 1,400 sets ng hook and line, 3 axial flow pumps, and vegetable seedlings.
Governor Espino encouraged the beneficiaries to untiringly continue their efforts in the agriculture sector which supports the livelihood in Pangasinan especially during the pandemic.
“Asikasuhin natin ang pagsasaka dahil sa Probinsya ng Pangasinan, ito ang magandang puhunan natin. Noong tumama ang pandemic, medyo maganda ang laban natin dahil ang bumubuhay sa probinsya ay ang mga magsasaka,” said Gov. Espino.
Beneficiaries of the program commended the Provincial Government of Pangasinan and Governor Espino for their constant assistance in the agriculture sector.
“Maraming salamat kay Governor Espino sa malaking tulong na ibinigay sa amin. Sana ay tuloy-tuloy pa rin ang kanyang programang Abig. Iyong binigay sa amin ay malaking tulong sa aming mga magsasaka,” said Mr. Jose Galicia, one of the beneficiaries.
