Dagana gets six mini power tillers from MoAF

His Excellency Minister for Ministry of Agriculture and Forest granted six additional mini power tillers to Dagana Dzongkhag on the evening of 14th October, 2017. The demonstration was also conducted to the public gathered in the meeting. FMCL will further conduct demonstration and basic operations in the coming days. The distribution of mini tiller was done in the presence of Dasho Director, Dzongrab and other relevant officials from the Ministry. The Dzongkhag now will have 30 power tillers in 14 geogs. The harsh geographical location with rugged terrain and steep slopes makes difficulty in deploying the big power tillers in the geog. The distribution of mini power tiller is expected to further expand the geog hiring services in mechanizing the agriculture farms. Further, the setting up of PoL station with small repair and maintenance workshop in three geogs namely, Kana, Drujaygang and Tsangkha is expected to immensely help the communities in availing the hiring services in the geogs. The PoL Stations will have all sort of basic farm machinery spare parts and implements readily stocked for the benefit of farmers which would help the company in fulfilling the core mandate as well as the social responsibility. The management would like to congratulate the geog officials including our extension officers in getting the new power tillers
