Nov 26, 2016 @ 16:54

Ilocos Sur, which is under the leadership of Governor Ryan Singson, won its second Outstanding Quality Corn Achiever Award.

This victory is the first back-to-win for the province since the politiko took over its helm.

It garnered the same award last year for posting an exemplary high-grade corn produce with an average of 2.24 metric tons yield increment.

During this year’s random sampling made by the evaluators from the Department of Agriculture (DA), the corn productivity of the province doubled and reached 5.8 metric tons.

Singson said this back-to-back win is a great achievement that was realized through the strong support of the provincial government, the DA and the local government units, with the commendable performance demonstrated by the farmers’ sector.

Upon assuming Ilocos Sur’s top position, the politiko initiated several corn development programs in an effort to increase the production and raise the quality of corn seeds to be planted in the farmlands of the province.

These include production support, provision of farm implements, irrigation and water system, farm machinery extension and training support, and even marketing support that could lead to high-quality corn produce.
