Agricultural Assistance

 

The Municipality of Guinayangan is extending its seedling assistance called "Gintong Butil para sa Kinabukasan". This will allow farmers to avail high breed seedlings for a minimum fee, in order to breed locally and gain high yields from their produce. A farmer only needs to declare its total land area to be cultivated, so that the necessary volume of seeds can be given.

Aside from palay, the municipal government through its Municipal Agriculture Office is providing free corn and vegetable seeds.  The municipality aims to be self-sufficient not only on rice but also with other agricultural products.

The Office of the Municipal Agriculturist also provide technical assistance for livestock production.  Included and funded annually for its development programs are dispersal of cattle, swine and chicken inclusive of their vaccinations.  

Also a free seminar on organic farming is being conducted per Barangay in order to educate farmers on the said topic. This includes hands on demonstration and a series of workshop. Organically produced agricultural products are very in-demand now a days because of continued health awareness of people. This could also be a more profitable venture a farmer could go into. 

Other local trainings and information dissemination include improved technology in crops, livestocks and fishery production.

Coconut and its by-products is still the most popular agricultural product here. Aside from rice, banana, corn, root crops, legumes and fruits, majority of sales from the different barangays in the municipality comes from coconut. It has been the bread and butter of the majority of our agricultural producers.  Rice is the 2nd major agricultural product in the municipality.  Guinayangan aims to be self-sufficient in rice within the next 10 years.  As such, development programs are being formulated to achieve such goal. 

 
 
Development Plans
 

Since 1998, the Municipality of Guinayangan is committed in the development and improvement of the agriculture sector. Being a food heaven means that, supply of agricultural products is abundant, internal requirements are met and excess can be traded to other places. In order to boost production, the Municipal Government is providing higher appropriations for the development of its agricultural products. Foremost of the support facilities provided by the municipality is the recently completed Public Market in Barangay Calimpak.

For the development of Marine and Aquatic resources, the municipality has just completed and approved its 5-year Coastal Resource Management and Fisheries Development Plan (CRMFDP) and is now gradually being implemented.  Among the prioritized programs for implementation of the CRMFDP include the Coral Reef and Mangrove Protection and Rehabilitation, Coastline Cleanliness and Sanitation, Fishery Law Enforcement, Patrol and Surveillance Program, Fishery Administration and Management, and the Supplemental Livelihood Support Program for Coastal Farmers and Fishermen. 

Local seminars and trainings are being planned to be conducted at the Barangay level instead of the current district level in order to reach more people. They will train on the ways on how to improve their skills and management of agricultural products and increase production.

 
 
Irrigation

 

Two newly constructed  Irrigation dams are now on the beginning of its operation. These are located in SINDACAR ARC serving the Irrigators Associations in Barangays Dancalan Caimawan, Sintones and Arbsimen.  This will support all assistance to local farmers and boost production in the process. This irrigation line will connect to existing and pass through unreached farm lands. This has been one of the priority projects of the Municipal Mayor and was realized through funding assistance from WB-DAR-ARCDP and NIA. Measuring 10 Kilometers long and costing about more than 30 million pesos, this will be added to Municipalities landmark of growth.

Old irrigation canals and waterways are being maintained and developed by the local Municipality in order to promote the continuous growth and progress of the agriculture sector.
