Ifugao bags awards during regional agriculture awarding

Jul 9, 2017

The 29th anniversary celebration of the Department of Agriculture-Cordillera focused the spotlight to the farmers and the agency’s partners under the Gawad Saka Awards, Rice Achievers Awards, and Organic Agriculture Awards.
A total of 41 awards were given to the winners who received plaques and cheques.
Kalinga, being the champion province, sacked 14 out of the 41 awards; followed by the province of Benguet with 10 awards. Ranked third was the province of Apayao with seven awards, Ifugao at fourth place with six awards, followed by Abra and Mountain Province with two awards each.
However, to express the genuine gratitude of the province of Ifugao to DA-CAR, a re-awarding ceremony was conducted at the provincial capitol of Ifugao graced by Governor Pedro G. Mayam-o last July 3, 2017.
Mayam-o encouraged the farmers to continue the great efforts they have started in sustaining the agriculture industry in their province and hoped to achieve more awards in the succeeding years. Also, he reminded the people to work together to support agriculture which is one of his platforms in meeting the demands of the community and even the neighboring provinces.
For Gawad Saka Awards, Ifugao was able to garner recognition from the categories of Outstanding Provincial Agriculture and Fishery Council (PAFC) and Outstanding 4-H Club and was given P50,000 for both. Also, a Gawad Saka Citation Award, the Outstanding Fisherfolk-Fishculture, was awarded to Moreno C. Dango with a certificate of recognition.
For Organic Agriculture Achievers Awards, the province received P500,000 (project grant) under the Outstanding Province category; P25,000 for the Outstanding Provincial focal person which was awarded to Catherine V. Buenaventura; and P50,000 for Outstanding Small Farmer-Individual which was given to Villafuerte S. Camat Jr. The total of awarded cheques was P675,000.
