Aklan to raise rice seeds subsidy to P10M
Aklan governor Florencio Miraflores said the province will increase rice seeds subsidy to P10 million next year from the current P2 million.
The Philippine Information Agency reported that Miraflores gave the assurance during a turnover of farming equipment worth P1,365100 to farm associations.
Miraflores said the P10-million subsidy will be given through farm associations, instead of individually, for better monitoring.
Miraflores distributed a Mini 4WD tractor, three hand tractors, and three floating tillers.
The equipment was financed by the Department of Agriculture (85 percent) and Aklan province (15 percent).
