>> Sunday, July 8, 2018

TABUK CITY – A farm to market road here is near completion to make access of farmers easier to the market where they can sell their goods faster.
“With 85 percent accomplishment, improvement of Bulanao-Amlao farm to market road will soon be completed,” said provincial agriculturist engineer Domingo A. Bakilan.
Bakilan added once the road has been completed, side structures will be constructed including road signs.
The 15.8-km road is funded and implemented under the Dept. of Agriculture’s Philippine Rural Development Project with a project cost of P180, 281,000.
It will support the coffee industry in the province as well as putting an end to the long time problem suffered by residents in transporting people, goods, and products to and from the market.
Engineer Orlando Panabang, PRDP engineer said slope protection, drainage and  rectification of defects will be completed.
Along with the FMR, the Kalinga Coffee Trading Center located here at Bulanao will be turned over to six farmer cooperatives as proponent groups of the Kalinga integrated coffee processing and marketing enterprise, a subproject under the PRDP’s I-REAP enterprise development component.
The trading center will be used for consolidation and marketing of coffee green beans from PG members.
“Before the year ends, we hope to turn over all the goods and processing equipment needed for the operation of the enterprise and the KCTC in time for the next harvest season,” said Jocelyn Beray, PRDP regional project coordination office – CAR I-REAP head.
Under the PRDP, Kalinga has recently turned over the first FMR which is the Banneng-Gombowoy FMR in Tanudan.
Meanwhile, the Improvement of Catabbogan-Wagud FMR in Pinukpuk is also ongoing  and 37 percent done as of May.
Three more proposed infrastructure subprojects are yet to be approved for implementation. -- Elvy Taquio
