CASIGURAN, Sorsogon (BicolToday.com) – The farmers will have just to plant and plant as the LGU will plow their farm free of charge including payment for the operators of the tractors.

Thus emphasized Mayor Edwin “Boboy” Hamor during the ground breaking rites of the P20-M Casiguran Community Hospital held recently outside the Office of the Casiguran Water District graced by the presence of this town’s 3-term mayor and now Vice Gov Ester Hamor, Sangguniang Bayan members led by Vice Mayor Ramon Escudero and other LGU employees,

Hamor said the farmes won’t be spending a single centavo preparing their farm for planting as the Municipal Agriculture Office headed by Benigno Bejison goes full blast in implementing the Angat Kabuhayan Program aimed primarily in increasing farm output and the income of the poor farmers.

Meanwhile, in a separate interview Municipal Agriculture Officer Benigno Bejison said the LGU at present has three farm tractors, surely a tremendous help to our farmers, he added.

As ordered by Mayor Hamor no fees will be collected from the farmers for the plowing of their farm.

Moreover, Bejison further averred, not just seedlings but month-old vegetables or trees are distributed to the farmers ready to be planted, including the fertilizer, also free of charge.

Two Thousand “itik” are also available where some 500 eggs have already been given to the farmers, also for free, Bejison added

Casiguran is a 4th class municipality with 25 barangays and a population of 39 thousand, said Municipal Information Officer Angel Ayala. [Bicoltoday.com]
