BOHOL | June 16, 2022 – FPA Regional Office VII collaborated with Agway Chemicals Corporation to conduct a farmers meeting in Barangay San Isidro, Pilar, Bohol on June 10, 2022.


Regional Officer (RO) Arnulfo Arausa, Jr., and Agronomist Dante Bentilanon discussed and promoted the Balanced Fertilization Strategy (BFS) and the safe and judicious use of fertilizer and pesticide to 15 farmers.


Nilalayon ng Balanced Fertilization Strategy ang paggamit ng kombinasyong inorganiko at organikong pataba para maibsan ang production cost habang pinapanatili ang mataas na ani at pinapanumbalik ang fertility ng lupa,” RO Arausa said.


The BFS Program is a long-term solution to address the rising price of fertilizer globally and the deteriorating soils by judicious use and/or combination of inorganic and organic materials like rice straw, livestock, and chicken manure to supply plants with appropriate nutrients to ensure that the crop can sustain high production over long cropping periods preserving the nutrients and improving soil structure.
