Paro Dzongkhag gets power tiller for the secound time

The second round of power tiller distribution for the Paro Dzongkhag was held in the FMCL’s office premises. The ceremony was graced by His Excellency, Minister for Ministry of Agriculture and Forest in the presence of Dasho Dzongdag, Dzongrab, geog officials including geog agriculture extension officers of the ten geogs. The each geog were provided with power tillers along with 200 litres of diesel oil as to help and support in smooth implementation of the hiring services. The distribution of fuel will help to reduce the movement of our extension officers whom are already bogged down with so many other planned and adhoc activities. The distribution of fuel will be continued in other Dzongkhags too with the procurement of fuel barrel at least for one season. The strategy is expected to be replicated by our concern officials in stocking the fuel during the peak hiring season for spontaneous and efficient services to the farming communities in mechanizing the farms. Further, the recruitment of trained operators nominated from the geogs through direct employment scheme will help our extension officers and geog administration in proper planning and implementation of the activities.
FMCL management wishes good luck to all the beneficiaries and Tashi Delek.
