Youth farmers get P6.9-M funding

Gov. Eugenio  Lacson visited yesterday the vegetable farm of the Myrrianne Youth Farmers Organization (MYFO) at Hacienda Myrianne, Brgy. San Pablo, in Manapla, a recipient of the Provincial Government’s Solar Irrigation Project.

The  project worth P6.9 Million was  funded by the province through the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist.

It started  construction in  September 2020 and is now 90 percent complete and scheduled for inauguration next month.  It has an estimated serviceable area of 30  to 50 hectares.

Lacson was welcomed by Mayor Manuel Escalante III, San Pablo Barangay Captain Josefa Cabayao, Municipal Agriculturist Alejandro Malijoc, and young farmers led by MYFO Chairman, Jison dela Cruz.

Lacson said he is happy to see children who are very interested and engaged in agriculture.

He also assured them of more agricultural support and projects from the provincial government.

The group plants vegetables and other high value crops on a 600 square-meter   farm, which is also proposed to be one of the agri-tourism destinations in the town.

The farm is one of the Abanse Negrense Farm Youth Vegetable Gardens and High Value Crops Farm Areas in the province.

The organization was formed  in  2018 and it was  awarded second  place in Innovative Technology during the Search for the Most Outstanding Young Farmer Organization (4H Club) of Negros Occidental in December 2020.*
