“For this year, our office is tasked to distribute 623 hectares of agricultural lands throughout the province,” Monge said.
Mayor Danilo Tan told the farmers to value their land because there is much money in farming. “That’s why our family shifted livelihood from fishing to farming,” he said. (Jose Alsmith l. Soria)
