DAGUPAN CITY- Regional director John Celeste of the National Irrigation Administration Region-1 lauded former Speaker Joe and his wife Rep. Gina de Venecia on their pledge to donate five flat bed dryers for the 4th district of Pangasinan.

Celeste said each of the dryer consists of a building with a fuel system powered by chaff of the grains. He said these would be tremendously useful to the farmers during the rainy season.

He stressed that his office would help the de Venecias look for land that would be donated to host the dryer. The dryer consists of a stationary housing, fuel system, and other machines. He added that the facility should be strategically located for easy access by the farmers.

He said that a flat bed dryer presently cost between P500 thousand to P600 thousand.

The project is funded from the Priority Development Assistance Fund of de Venecia.

De Venecia has P70 million a year PDAF that would increase by P85 million in case the P15 million share of each of the 285 congressmen would be given after the amended Road Users’ Tax is signed into law this year.

Celeste said farmers in the province lack warehouses and properly- designed post harvest building where they could stock their produce.

Together with some of his officials who head different local government units in the province, Celeste and the de Venecias distributed the newly purchased water pumps to farmer organizations from the towns of Mangaldan, San Fabian, San Jacinto, and Manaoag, and the city of Dagupan.

“We have already distributed 90 water pumps. We will be buying another 90 water pumps for you,” former Speaker Joe rabble said to the cheering beneficiaries.
