LAOAG CITY (PNA) – The Department of Agriculture is set to turn over to the Ilocos Norte government a brand new hauling truck for use by mango producers here.
In support to the high value crop development program of the government, the hauling truck will be open to all members of the Ilocos Norte Mango Stakeholders Association and they can take turns to use it particularly during the harvest season.
Provincial Board member Conrado Respicio II said Monday a memorandum of agreement is now being prepared for signing by concerned representatives to formalize the turnover soonest.
As part of the agreement, Respicio said it is up to the mango association to design a scheme on how the members can maximize use of the hauling truck where they can charge for a certain amount for the vehicle’s maintenance.
