The post-harvest facility (PHF) consisting of one-unit Warehouse and a Solar-Dryer is intended for the Cooperative Business operation for Rice and Corn Trading.
 
“Launching the new support service sends the message of hope and continuity of agricultural production for the ARBs of San Agustin after the typhoon,” says Isabela Provincial Agrarian Reform Officer Alfredo B. Lorenzo, Jr.
 
‘Labuyo’ left San Agustin one of the hardest hit municipalities damaging mostly banana and corn crops. “80% of our P4.6-M-Worth-of-Post-Harvest-Facility-Launched-in-San-Agustin-Isabela-amid-Fallen-Crops-3corn was damaged and all banana trees are down,” says Mayor Virgilio A. Padilla who was as the event as the LGU lead. “Nevertheless, our rice crops were not severed,” adds Padilla.
 
 
“As a 4th class municipality, the LGU of San Agustin is IRA dependent,” shares Padilla. The interventions of DAR in the improvement of infrastructure facilities of the municipality give San Agustin a chance to better cope.

The PHF will begin with construction phase after its ground-breaking in service to Mapalad Hillside Agrarian Reform Community.
 
The ARC was an earlier recipient to a Farm-to-Market Road (FMR) under ARISP sub-project and a Potable Water Supply (PWS) sub-project. The LGU of San Agustin emerged among hundreds of municipalities as one of the few recipients of the Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Project (ARISP) of the Department.
 
The sub-project has an approved cost of over P4.6 M. 60% of the cost, or amounting to over P 2.8 M, will be shouldered by the Local Government of San Agustin as the agreed LGU equity.
