BENGUET | March 31, 2022 – Lusod, Kabayan gave a warm appreciation to the FPA-CAR, headed by Regional Officer Rogelio B. Tanguid and Provincial Officer Rowena F. Billig, last March 17-18, 2022 after the regional unit conducted a face-to-face Accredited Safety Dispenser (ASD) training in the area.


Lusod, Kabayan is one of Benguet’s most remote barangays. The barangay is over eight hours away from Benguet’s capital on a dusty, narrow, and rugged route.


Despite this, 32 officers and members of the Lusod Agrarian Reform Community Multipurpose Cooperative (Lusod ARC MPC) participated in the training that the cooperative had organized and sponsored. The training grabbed the community’s interest because of the prospective market openings in La Trinidad, Benguet, and Nueva Vizcaya once the roads are open.


In his closing remarks, Lusod Barangay Secretary expressed his gratitude to the personnel of FPA-CAR for conducting such activity in their locality.


Lusod ARC MPC members who attended the training are expected to submit requirements for License to Operate as dealers of fertilizer and pesticide products, upon completion.
