Bukidnon, La Union officials learn good governance practices from Pasig LGU

Officials from the municipality of Quezon, Bukidnon, and San Fernando, La Union visited Pasig City to learn about the local government’s best practices

For their visit last May 15, the Quezon, Bukidnon delegation brought 37 of their municipal and barangay officials led by Mayor Pablo Lorenzo III.

They were welcomed by Vice Mayor Robert “Dodot” Jaworski Jr. and Councilors Angelu De Leon and Volta Delos Santos, all of whom shared their knowledge and experiences as public officials in Pasig.

In their welcome remarks, Jaworski, De Leon, and Delos Santos expressed their appreciation for being chosen as the municipal government’s benchmarking partner. They also hoped that the delegation would be able to learn and adopt new methods and ideas that would benefit and help their municipality.

Discussed were the five priority thrusts of the Sotto administration: good governance, diligent service, universal healthcare, inclusive education, and affordable housing, as well as the Liga ng mga Barangay system in Pasig.

To witness the legislative proceedings of the City, the delegation visited and met with the Pasig City Council during the council’s regular meeting at the session hall.

The delegation also stopped by the Ugnayan ng Pasig (UsaP) Office to learn more about the city government implementing its freedom of information (FOI) policies and programs.

Meanwhile, the San Fernando, La Union delegation, headed by Provincial Administrator Agnes Grace Cargamento, conducted their benchmarking activity in Pasig on May 18.

The activity mainly focused on the Pasig government’s best practices in financial management which the Budget Office presented.

The delegation also visited the City’s Mega Dialysis Center and the Maybunga Rainforest Park to observe the City’s healthcare provision for its citizens and its efforts in environmental conservation, respectively.

Organized by the Cultural Affairs and Tourism Office of Pasig City, benchmarking visits are frequently done to grant opportunities for the local government to showcase and share its best programs, policies, and systems with others across the country.

Aside from an exchange of ideas, the visits also enable the local government to gain outsider perspectives of their practices in order to determine further room for improvement, along with insights into innovations and methods of governance that can be considered and implemented within their jurisdiction.

Yellow, white corn cultivars introduced in DA’s research complex

DALWANGAN, MALAYBALAY CITY, BUKIDNON – The Department of Agriculture – Northern Mindanao (DA-10), headed by Regional Executive Director Carlene C. Collado together with private seed companies, introduces the latest yellow and white corn varieties via a corn derby, kicking off with a ceremonial planting here, on May 16, 2023

The activity aims to champion the performance of 17 corn cultivars this wet cropping season under said area’s soil and climatic conditions at an elevation of 968 meters.

According to Dir. Collado, the corn derby will be a good showcase for corn farmers to witness first-hand the performance of different corn varieties in terms of their yield, resistance to pests and diseases, drought tolerance, production cost, and returns when selecting their preferred cultivars.

Eight seed companies participated, bringing in their respective corn varieties, with each being planted to a 764 square meter area in the agency’s research complex, Northern Mindanao Agricultural Crops and Livestock Research Complex (NMACLRC).

These include Syngenta Philippines, Inc. (NK505BGT), Bayer (DK8899S and DK8131S), Bioseed Research Philippines (H101G and B9909G), Corteva Agriscience (P3660YHR, P3645YR, and P4124YHR), RJR Agro-Industrial Enterprises (Maharlika 315, Maharlika 514 and Maharlika 8888), and Evo Gene Seeds, Corp. (Evo 9307).

Rounding up the list of participating entities are Asian Hybrid Seed Tech, Inc. (AH Supreme 5150 and J505) and Vigour Seeds Dev., Inc. (Mais Swerte, Maize D30, and Mais Tisa), with the last two entities deferring their planting due to their early maturing corn variety entries.

“We thank DA-10 for this [corn derby] initiative as this will be a great help for our corn farmers to determine which cultivars are appropriate and fit to be planted here in Northern Mindanao,” Allan L. Presillas, Research and Development manager of Vigour remarked, as their company embarks on their first ever participation.

In a briefing, NMACLRC chief Carmelito R. Lapoot also reminded them, as DA-10’s partner seed companies, to provide packages of their planting protocol for proper generation of corn derby results, at the same time for information-dissemination purposes.

For the current year alone, DA-10 is set to procure Php265.2-million hybrid yellow corn seeds intended for 22,100 hectares of corn farms.

Leading the ceremonial planting is Regional Technical Director for Operations Carlota S. Madriaga with Field Operations Division chief Luz I. Guzman, Ph.D., Bukidnon Provincial Operations Center chief Janet D. Lopez, DVM, and other staff from the Research and Operations divisions of DA-10, and representatives from the seed companies.
