The Department of Agriculture (DA) Western Visayas made two of its primary agricultural services, the Mobile Soils Laboratory and Mobile Plant Pest Clinic, available to farmers.

Farmers across the region can benefit from the services of both mobile labs, which they can access upon request of the respective local government units and farmer’s associations.

Regional Executive Director of DA 6 Remelyn Recoter said the mobile services is part of the agency’s mission to provide support to farmers through modern facilities for a sustainable, competitive, and resilient agriculture sector.

Both the mobile soil lab and pest clinic was funded by the DA’s rice program and cost P4 million and P2.9 million, respectively.

The mobile facilities are also available during farmers’ forums, agricultural information caravans, and other agri-related events
