A total of 6,928 farmers covering 8,777 hectares of rice fields in Davao de Oro benefitted the P35 million fertilizer discount vouchers (FVD) from the Department of Agriculture (DA) as part of the government’s continuing efforts to help boost the agriculture sector in the province.
Qualified beneficiaries for the program are rice farmers registered in the Registry System for Basic Sectors in Agriculture (RSBSA) who planted palay in the 2023 Wet Season and those who received inbred and hybrid seeds from the DA and purchased their owned seeds.
Based on the given data, the agency in collaboration with the Provincial Agriculturist’s Office (PAGRO) started the distribution of assistance on August 17 to 30, 2023, to the rice farmers from the municipality of Nabunturan, Montevista, New Bataan, Mawab, Laak, Maco, and Compostela.
The discount vouchers are for one-time use only and are claimed by any accredited fertilizer merchant in the preferred area of the farmer-beneficiaries.
According to DA, aside from ensuring the timely availability of the needed fertilizer for rice production in the targeted areas, the program also aims to help farmers afford the cost of fertilizers in improving their yield and income.
To ensure the quality of the outputs, the department has also determined the type of fertilizer for which the voucher will be used.
In his message, Jerry Aventurado, one of the beneficiaries from Barangay Basak, Nabunturan, stated that the voucher is a great help to their livelihood to buy a sufficient volume of urea fertilizer recommended for their rice area.
