DANAO CITY FARMERS HARVESTED 100,000 KILOS OF WHITE AND YELLOW CORN.
September 7, 2020- Because of our farmers’ diligence and hard work, they harvested 100,000 kilos of White and Yellow Corn even before year 2020 has come to an end. And of course, this would not be possible without the reliable and consistent service of Danao City Government, through the Danao City Agriculture and Fisheries Development Cooperative (DACAFDEC).
Our local farmers learned to use the high yielding variety yellow white corn seeds from the Department of Agriculture (DA)- Region 7 resulting in the evident increase in their harvests.
The Danawanon farmers have become more driven and hardworking because of this new innovation complemented by the city’s unending support in transporting their harvests from their farms going to the processing plant in Barangay Lawaan.
This processing plant was acquired by the Danao City Government from DA-VII as an aid for the local farmers.
On the other hand, our farmers have direct access to sell their own harvest in order for them to easily gain their profit.
The following are the data on their harvested corns on year 2017 up to the present:
-2017: 10,500 kilos (Php6/kilo)
-2018: 31,800 kilos (Php7/kilo)
-2019: 135,362 kilos (Php7/kilo)
-2020 (first week of September) 100,000 kilos (Php7/kilo)
With fair weather, more of these high breed corns are expected to be harvested by our Danawanon farmers, hopefully ending year 2020 on a high note.
