Kalinga tops certified seed rollout in Small Scale Category 2022

Tabuk City, Kalinga – The province of Kalinga headed by Governor Ferdinand Tubban achieved the highest rates of seed delivery and distribution under the Small Scale Category 2022 Dry Season of Rice Competitiveness Enhancement Fund (RCEF)-Seed Program of Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice).

The Department of Agriculture-PhilRice conferred the plaques and certificates of appreciation to the province during the virtual awarding held on Thursday, February 17, 2022.

According to PhilRice, the province was awarded as the Best LGU Partner in Small Scale Category 2022 Dry Season of Rice for having been able to deliver and distribute 20,000 certified bags.

The Office of the Provincial Agriculture and Services (OPAS) and its Department Head, Engr. Domingo Bakilan, also received recognition as one of the most outstanding offices in implementing RCEF-Seed Program for the said season.

Bakilan's leadership, as stated by RCEF Director Flordeliza H. Bordey, is an exemplification of competence, efficiency, professionalism, and dedication, carrying out his sworn duty to serve the rice-farmer- constituents.

This, she added, has been instrumental in achieving the 100% of the seed delivery target in Kalinga and at least 95% distribution of high-quality certified seeds to the Program's beneficiaries.

“This recognition attests your role intentions, steadfast result, and committed actions. May it inspire you to continue pursuing and excellence and selfless service,” underscored the department,” Bordey said.

Meanwhile, the Provincial Agriculturist, through Provincial Governor’s Information Services, said that the success of the program wouldn’t be possible without the support of the incumbent administration and partner local government units.
