Documents from DAR-SK indicated that the post harvest facilities cost Php 2,048,295.77 while the water system amounted to Php 5,861,232.76.

According to Luis Juliano, Municipal Agrarian Reform Officer of Pres. Quirino, the projects consist of the 450 sq.m solar dryer, 36 sq.m. warehouse and level II potable water system.

Sitio Lagon Farmers Multi-Purpose Cooperative (SILAFAMCO) was also a recipient of the said projects, Juliano added.

Virginia Gonio, cooperative chairperson of SILAFAMCO disclosed that their coop has been using the solar dryer even before it was formally turned over to the LGU. 

Gonio said that aside from their use of the solar dryer for the coop’s buy and sell business, they also gained income from it.

The non-member farmers, from Barangay Kalanawi II and neighboring barangays, were paying 5-peso-per-sack rentals for use of the solar dryer. The coop has collected Php7, 100.00 from the rentals since last cropping.

During the ceremonial turn over at the office of Mayor Azel Mangudadatu, Al Hadja, PARO Alburo reminded the present leaders of recipient organizations to take care and maintain the good conditions of the projects for them to benefit longer and to further the productivity of their economic activities.
