Chief Agrarian Reform Program Officer Engr. Nestor I. Villanueva, said that the 259-strong farmers cooperative would benefit from the tractor.

“This brand new 90-horsepowered tractor including the farm implements—trailing harrow, disc plow and trailer, would greatly improve and make farming a lot easier, reduce their expenses and improve farm yield,” said Villanueva.

Cooperative Manager Aurelio D. Solon who formally received the tractor said “this tractor is such a big help. It will speed up our plowing and other preparatory activities before actual planting. This tractor would now be one of our services to our members.”
