An estimated of 46.43 hectares of rice field have been affected by the massive rice crop damage on the previous June to July of 2016 crop pestilence. Several local farmers specifically located in Barangay Sergio Osmeña, Manuel Roxas, Crispin Dela Cruz and Poblacion, Governor Generoso, Davao Oriental were the most affected areas. As an intervention, the Local Government Unit of Governor Generoso in collaboration with the Department of Agriculture through the Municipal Agriculture Office as the implementing agency of the LGU in providing agricultural extension services to famers, distributed fertilizers as an assistance to those affected farmers who experienced massive failure in their rice fields.
More than fifty farmers convened at the Municipal Gymnasiun, Poblacion, Governor Generoso, Davao Oriental on September 20, 2016 to receive 1 sack of fertilizer each to aid in the rehabilitation of their ricefields.
Speaking at the forum, Hon. Mayor Katrina Joy H. Orencia stated that she will make sure that all the help she can give to our farmers will be given and provided because the farmers play a vital role in our society as a main producer and source of our basic needs which is food.
The event was facilitated by Mr. Lauro M. Aguanta with Mr. Enrique Dizon both agriculturist in the LGU. Mr Aguanta further discussed and disseminated information on other projects and programs intended for the local farmers such as free sack of Fertilizer for every hectare to those farmers who will conduct ratooning method in their fields and many other services provided by the Department of Agriculture.
