Marcela Farms introduces new organic fertilizers
As the government shifts its focus on agriculture, and in the wake of houseplant craze trending in this pandemic, there’s a better way now to enjoy planting and improve sustainable farming with the new, pure and natural Marcela Farms fermented chicken manure fertilizer.
Another quality product of Marcela Farms, Inc., a subsidiary of the Alturas Group of Companies (AGC), the said organic fertilizer is made from pure chicken dung which was already proven effectively to enrich the soil on any rice fields and other farm lands.
Two months ago, AGC distributed at least 1,000 bags of Marcela fertilizers at 50 kls. each free to the local farmers in 23 pilot municipalities, channeled through their respective Municipal Agriculture Office (MAO). The free-tilizer program was one way to test its soil fertility; and at the same time a support to the local farmers as AGC is always an active and dynamic partner of the government on agricultural development.
Department of Agriculture (DA) Region VII Director, Atty. Salvador Diputado, who presided over a meeting with the different MAOs of Bohol last June 1, even expressed appreciation to the AGC for its free-tilizer program as it really helps improve farmers productivity and food security.
Now, the difference is quite evident between the use of organic and chemical-based fertilizers as the new Marcela Farms fertilizers improve more soil fertility than any other fertilizers as proven in the testimonies of some farmers-beneficiaries.
Marcela Farms fertilizers are now commercially available in 50 kg., 25 kg., and 5 kg. per bag at MFI Farmers Market in Lomangog, Ubay, Bohol; and in all Fixrite Hardwares of all Alturas stores, except Plaza Marcela.
