BOHOL | July 7, 2022 – Regional Officer (RO) Arnulfo Arausa, Jr., assisted by Provincial Officers Andy Cornell Bornillo and Jesus Muring, conducted a training on the proper use of fertilizer and pesticide for 109 lowland vegetable farmers from Brgy. San Isidro, Mabini, Bohol and Brgy. Taytay, Getafe, Bohol on July 6 and 7, 2022.

FPA Central Visayas (RFU 7) distributed 109 information kits, including the Gabay sa Tamang Paggamit ng Abono at Pestisidyo, to guide the participants on the proper application these inputs.


Also present in the activity is Mr. JP Sanchez of DA SAAD and Mr. Michael Ligutan of Enasia Import Export Corporation.  ###
