Completed FMR benefits rice, coconut farmers in Butuan City

Saturday, June 26, 2021

Public Works Secretary Mark Villar announced that a recently completed farm-to-market road (FMR) now provides safety and convenience to residents and farmers of Barangay Basag and Barangay Camayahan in Butuan City, Agusan del Norte.

Secretary Villar said that concrete paving of a 1.45 kilometer road with embankment and pipe culverts facilitates a more convenient access to transportation.

Farmers in these barangays now have better income since the FMR aids them in the delivery of rice and coconuts to nearby markets at a lesser cost.

The P24.3 million appropriation for the FMR project was sourced out from the Department of Agriculture’s (DA) fund for FY 2020.
