MAGSAYSAY, Davao del Sur, July 15 — This town, which was recently awarded as one of the country’s Outstanding Rice Achievers, acquired five Mobile All-In Shredder Machines and six Vermi Tea Brewers from the Department of Agriculture-Region 11.

Municipal Agriculturist Helen Carampatana received Wednesday afternoon the farm machineries which were manufactured by the Davao Techno Craft, from the DA personnel.

Carampatana said the machines will also be distributed to identified cooperatives and Rural Improvement Club (RIC) women’s group.

She said the shredder machine will be pulverizing biodegradable materials like rice stalks and hulls to become organic fertilizers while the brewer will be fermenting 60 liters of water added with one kilo of vermicast for 72 hours to be sprayed to rice farms and other agricultural areas also as fertilizer.

Carampatana said that the distribution of farm machineries is only part of various distributed farm equipment here in this municipality since it also acquired two farm tractors, a number of threshers, and an Organic Trading Post, among others. (PNA)
