Passi City farmers to receive grains processing, feed mill
The Department of Agriculture (DA) pledged to put up a grains processing and feed mill in Passi City in Iloilo to grant the request of the province’s farmers.
As of now grains farmers in the area are complaining about the lack of machineries and farm equipment.
The rice farmers who own irrigated farms also expressed their intent to participate in the private sector-led seeds and fertilizer loaning program.
When officials of the DA visited the area, grains farmers were assured of a processing complex so they could handle the milling, packaging and marketing of their produce.
Organic farmers were also assured of support for the establishment of a tissue culture laboratory and organic fertilizer processing facility.
Livestock farmers, on the other hand, will receive outstanding breeding materials for hogs and a feed mill so they could process and produce their own feeds using locally available materials.
