casanwaterpump-smallIN LINE with the national thrust of the Department of Agriculture (DA) through the Ginintuang Masaganang Ani (GMA) to boost agricultural production, its Regional Field Unit I (RFU I) in San Fernando, La Union and the local government of Pozorrubio represented by Mayor Emma Chan entered into an agreement providing one (1) unit of water pump (Kubota RK-70) to five (5) selected Barangays of the municipality, initially. The 5 barangays

(Banding, Casanfernadoan, Rosario, Malasin and Amagbagan) represented by the respective punong-barangay received 1 unit each of the said water pump to be used by their farmer-constituents, hopefully to help increase agricultural production, thereby attaining the vision of the Ginintuang Masaganang Ani Program.

One unit of water pump with accessories costs P56,000. The Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) stipulates that the DA-RFU I will pay 50% (P28,000.) of the cost per unit. The local government of Pozorrubio in partnership with each Barangay recipient will pay for the other 50%.
