To ensure the smooth conduct of turnovers of Composting Facilities for Biodegradable Wastes (CFBW) regionwide, the Bureau of Soils and Water Management-10 (BSWM-10) conducts a courtesy call to the Department of Agriculture – Regional Field Office 10 (DA-RFO 10) headed by Regional Executive Director Carlene C. Collado on May 8, 2023.

A total of 103 CFBW units will be delivered to beneficiaries this month of May, which includes Local Government Units (LGUs), Farmers’ Cooperatives, Associations (FCAs), Learning Schools (LS), Farmers’ Schools (FS), Irrigators’ Associations (IAs), Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs) and State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) in Northern Mindanao.
