DA helps farmers level up
Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala said government will continue to help the farmer take on the additional hat of an entrepreneur.
Alcala was in Ilocos Sur recently where he attended a farmers’ forum and attended to their needs.
Alcala, in his message, he said government will assist farmers in terms of their production and post-production needs.
“Ang nais po natin hindi lamang mapababa ang production cost ninyo, kundi i-capacitate kayo upang maging entrepreneurs,” he said.
Aside from inputs and assistance packages, the Department of Agriculture is providing training and extension works so that farmer groups can be service providers to their fellow farmers.
This way, Alcala said, the farmers can level up from being tillers to entrepreneurs.
