AgSur LGU receives fund for Monolithic Dome Cold Storage Project from DA-Caraga

BAYUGAN CITY, Agusan del Sur, Mar. 11 -- The Department of Agriculture (DA) Caraga headed by Regional Executive Director Abel James Monteagudo, recently turned-over the cheque for the funds intended for the Monolithic Dome Cold Storage and Packing Facility for Fruits and Vegetables to the local government unit (LGU) of San Franciso, Agusan del Sur.
The said project is under the High-Value Crops Development Program and costs a total of P25,000,000.00 with P20,000,000 funded by the DA–Caraga and P5,000,000 as LGU counterpart.    
Dir. Monteagudo said the Monolithic Dome Cold Storage, which prolongs storage of perishable goods, is a timely project since these are still difficult times due to the COVID-19 pandemic and travel and movement are still limited.
On the other hand, Municipal Mayor Solomon Rufila said that they would hasten the implementation of the said project so that the farmers of San Francisco and even those from the neighboring municipalities can already start benefitting from it.
The turn-over ceremony was also attended by DA-Caraga Field Operations Division OIC Melody Guimary, HVCDP Coordinator Marco Antonio Morido, and Municipal Agriculturist ViƱa Ranoco. (DA-RFO XIII, RAFIS/PIA-Agusan del Sur)
