THE Department of Agriculture IV-CALABARZON (DA-4A) distributed 300 kilograms of hybrid white glutinous corn seeds to Barangay Burol Organic Agriculture Cooperative in Barangay Burol, Calamba, Laguna, on April 26.

The distribution was led by DA-4A OIC-Regional Technical Director for Research and Regional Corn Banner Program Coordinator Avelita M. Rosales.

The distribution of corn seeds is part of the Balik-Tangkilik Program under the Bayanihan II, wherein the corn seeds given will be planted on the 50-hectare model farm. Fifty percent of the harvested corn crops from the distributed seeds will be returned to the cooperative. The cooperative will sell the crops and buy additional inputs out of the proceeds that can be bought by or lent to the farmers for their next planting season.

Aside from corn seeds, DA-4A gave 150 bags of complete fertilizers, 150 urea fertilizers, and 50 bottles of insecticides.

“Kami po ay natutuwa. Malaking tulong po ito sa farmers na kung dati ay walang maitanim. At ‘yong maibabalik nila ay gagamitin naman sa pagbili ng magagamit din nila sa susunod,” Barangay Burol Organic Agriculture Cooperative Chairman Sotero D. Mamalayan said.|- Reina Beatriz P. Peralta
