DA rolls out “Plant, Plant, Plant” in Sarangani

ALABEL, Sarangani (May 7, 2020) – Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon speaks before participants during the Rice Resiliency Project (RRP) briefing and orientation conducted by the Department of Agriculture (DA) in Sarangani on May 7. RRP is under the Plant, Plant, Plant Program of the DA which aims “to distribute seeds and fertilizers for free to rice farmers starting the 2020 wet cropping season to further boost the country’s rice production,” especially in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic. “Ito ang isang tool natin para patayin itong COVID which is agricultural production. We keep the people healthy and in good nutrition,” Solon said. The event was attended by the staff from DA lead by regional director Arlan Mangelen, Philippine Coconut Authority, the provincial and municipal agriculturists, provincial officials, and municipal mayors.
