ISABELA PROVINCE | September 22, 2022 – Provincial Officer (PO) Noel A. Baliuag, Jr. and Provincial Agriculturist Marites Frgoso inspected the DTD Agricultural Organiques in Brgy. Bagong Silang, Ilagan, Isabela last September 21, 2022.


During the inspection, the team monitored 28,000 pcs. of 50-kilogram fertilizer bags in their warehouse and observed that the said company has the potential to be a source of quality organic fertilizer. However, the said organic fertilizer should be registered under the Bureau of Agricultural and Fisheries Standards (BAFS) who are mandated under the organic law RA 10068 and 11511.


DDT Agricultural Organiques, owned and managed by Mr. Aladin Puno, is a well-known organic fertilizer producer in the province. The inspection was conducted to determine its capacity and capability to produce organic fertilizer of good quality and quantity, following the plans of the local government of Isabela to search for manufacturers in the province that could support and promote the Balance Fertilization Strategy (BFS) program of the Department of Agriculture.


BFS is a program recommended by FPA and other DA agencies that applies the 4Rs in fertilization: Right Source, Right Placement, Right Amount, and Right Rate to help enhance soil health and productivity, prevent declining soil fertility, and improve fertilizer availability and costs. It also aimed to address the ongoing price hikes of fertilizer in the market.


The Bidding and Awards Committee (BAC) of the LGU of Isabela will determine the procurement and supplier of organic fertilizers for the program based on the result of the inspections. ###
