Aquino: Allot 2% of DA budget for organic farming.
President Aquino directed the Department of Agriculture to ensure that 2 percent of its annual budget be allocated for the implementation of its programs and policies on organic agriculture.
The President gave the directive in his speech at the 8th National Organic Agriculture Conference at the Aquino Center of Hacienda Luisita here.
“Inaasahan ko ang tuloy-tuloy na pagdodoble-kayod ng Department of Agriculture sa pagbuo at pagpapatupad ng mga polisiya at programa na magpapabilis sa pag-unlad ng organic farming sa bansa, sa ilalim ng kanilang National Organic Agriculture Program,” the President said.
“Katuwang naman ang Department of Budget and Management, sisiguruhin natin na mailalaan ng DA ang hindi bababa sa dalawang porsiyento ng kanilang taunang budget sa pagpapatupad sa nabanggit na programa, alinsunod sa RA 10068,” he added.
Republic Act 10068, otherwise known as Organic Agriculture Act of 2010, strengthens the state’s policy to promote, propagate, develop further and implement the practice of organic agriculture in the Philippines.
The President is promoting organic agriculture as a means to address the issue of food security in the country.
“Habang pinapalawak natin ang access ng bawat pamilya sa sapat na pagkain, kailangan din nating pag-igtingin ang pagpapalaganap ng mga kaalaman at teknolohiya na magpapanumbalik sa kalusugan ng mga lupang sakahan,” the President said.
“Dito pumapasok ang halaga ng organic agriculture,” he added.
The President said that through organic agriculture, farmers are ensured of cumulatively conditioning and enriching the fertility of the soil, increase farm productivity, reduce pollution and destruction of the environment, prevent depletion of natural resources, and further protect the health of farmers, consumers and the general public.
He added that the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization has determined that organic agriculture has the potential to increase farm productivity, thereby increasing farmers’ wages and provide food for all.
“Makakatulong din ito sa pagbaba ng gastos sa pagsasaka,” the President added. (PNA)
