NegOcc starts farm mechanization
BY MARK L. GARCIA

The Negros Occidental provincial government launched yesterday a program to fully mechanize and synchronize a 200-hectare rice area in Bago City, that will lead to a full-swing technology-based farming in the province.

Provincial Agriculturist Japhet Masculino said yesterday that the program, called Focused Agriculture Area for Sustainable Transformation, or FAST, covers a 200-hectare rice area of the Newton-Camingawan-Para Farmers Association (NECAPA) in Purok Camingawan Proper, Brgy. Taloc in Bago.

Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. led the launching of the program where the NECAPA farmers tried to mechanize the process of transplanting rice seedlings in the area.
