Important role of farmers

Posted last December 24, 2014, 6:46 am in People report article

To have a land to be use for farming is so prevailing in the provinces.Although there are portion of land for commercial and industrial but an agriculture land area  should be protected.If there will be lack of farm and farmers,there will be negative effect to the supply of food in a certain country.

In the Philippines, one strategy of the government particularly the Department of Agriculture is to encourage more farmers to be diligent more is by giving a recognition to those individuals and organization from different provinces because of their contribution which create big impact to the progress of the community.This year there are total of 12 individuals and 8 associations,including the best barangay food terminal(LGU and Non-LGU category),Municipal Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Management Council(MFARMC),Organic Agriculture Farmer and agricultural researcher who are being recognized.The outstanding family of farmers received a cash reward of PhP200,000.Two individual winners in the field of science and research received a PhP900,000 in research grant and PhP100,000 cash prize.All group winners with the exemption of the outstanding Fisheries and Aquatic Resources Management Council(FARMC),will each receive PhP50,000 in cash award and PhP300,000 in project grant.All winners  received a trophy and a citation.

The effort of farmers to maintain their good contribution to the society is really important that's why if the farmers will have sufficient knowledge from the start of planning,planting until marketing their products with the support of the government to provide assistance to their needs then there's a big possibility that more Filipino farmers will enjoy farming career and get richer like farmers in developing countries.
