To promote farm mechanization, PHilMech joined the first Farmer’s Fiesta in San Jose City last March 20-21.

With the theme “Magsasaka, Ikaw ang Bida”, the event aimed to teach the farmers to develop their ways in rice production.

“Hangga’t tayo ay magsasaka, tayo ay laging bida. Mabuhay ang pagsasaka!” said San Jose City Vice Mayor Glenda F. Macadangdang said during her opening remarks.

Farmers learned about different rice and vegetable heat tolerant varieties and technologies, impact of climate change in agriculture, and city ordinance regarding agricultural pollution.

The first Farmer’s Fiesta was held by the City Agriculture Office, Local Government Unit of San Jose City which is offered for farmers in the town of San Jose.

The event was attended by numerous exhibitors which includes Philippine Center for Postharvest Development and Mechanization (PHilMech), Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice), Central Luzon State University (CLSU) U-Mart, Eastern Primary Multi-Purpose Cooperative, Kalasag Farmer Producer Cooperative, Unigrow, and City Agriculture Office.
