AGNO- This agricultural town in the western part of Pangasinan will boost its agri-fishery development after the municipal government under Mayor Jose Pajeta prioritized the funding of modern farming and fishery equipment, technology transfer, and trainings and seminars of farmers and fishermen.
Mayor Pajeta said under his administration, he will ensure that adequate funds will be allocated to finance agricultural programs in the town, the primary source of livelihood of the townspeople.
True to his promise to push the development of the agri-fishery of the town, Pajeta  has directed Municipal Agriculturist Thelma R. Quodala to look into the needs of the farmers and fishermen in terms of farm inputs, farm equipment, fishing gears, etc. in order to make them more productive in their endeavors.
” We are waiting for the approval of the P4.5 million assistance from the Department of Agriculture (DA) to fund the repair of our irrigation canals.  The funding is already being processed by the Regional Office,” Pajeta said.
Pajeta also said once the irrigation canals are repaired, additional 51 hectares will be irrigated to benefit 81 farmer-families in the villages of Tupa and Macaboboni.
He further said seven coastal villages will be the beneficiaries of fishing boats under the “Fishermen Boats for Livelihood Program” of the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) of DA amounting to P2 million.
Meanwhile, the town has been a consistent awardee of the Seal of Good Local Governance given by the Department of Interior and Local Government (DILG) in 2014, 2015 and 2016.
