FMR projects to boost agri production in Kalinga

CITY OF TABUK, Kalinga, March 22(PIA) -- Farmers in barangays in the province are seen to increase their rice and corn production with the farm to market road (FMR) projects in the province.


The Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) has completed the P99 million-worth  8.4-kilometer farm-to-market road connects that  Barangays of Cabaruan of Tabuk City to Sucbot of Pinukpuk town under the Conditional Matching Grant to Provinces (CMGP).

 Provincial Local Government Operations Officer Mayer Adong said reported that the 6-kilometer CMGP road improvement project costing P73M that connects Barangays Cabaritan of Tabuk City with Dugpa in Pinukpuk is due for completion in the next quarter.

Another P95M is programmed to pave the FMR connecting Barangays Dalnacan, Taloctoc and Mangali in the municipality of Tanudan.

The CMGP is intended to finance concreting of provincial roads leading to upland and grassroot areas with potential agricultural production, Adong explained.

 The FMRs are expected to motivate farmers to   increase their agricultural production as they can now transport their products easier to the market and minimize post harvest losses.

Kalinga is a consistent recipient of development projects and is a ‘Hall of Famer’ in DILG’s Search for Good Local Governance Award. Larry Lopez (JDP/LL-PIA CAR, Kalinga)
