THE PROMOTION of eco-friendly farm mechanization could bring a positive impact on the agricultural sector in the country.
With the adoption of appropriate, cost effective, and modern agricultural equipment and machinery, farming can become more beneficial and less labor intensive, allowing the farmers to enhance their efficiency and productivity.
Sustainable mechanization is the process of presenting the right machinery to the farmers in order to make their production more sustainable and become more efficient in cultivating their crops.
At present, farm mechanization now plays an important role in improving agricultural productivity in the country.
Aside from improving production efficiency, mechanization also encourages large-scale production, and helps in achieving an improved quality of the farm produce.
Based on these factors, a partnership between Kubota Philippines, Inc. (KPI) and Bacolod City-based R.U. Foundry and Machine Shop Corporation (RUFMSC) was made for the promotion of eco-friendly farm mechanization.
Believing that food, water, and the environment are indispensable, the alliance towards advocating an eco-friendly relationship can bring positive impact on the agricultural sector in the country.
After all, both companies are focused on contributing their concerted efforts for enhancing agricultural productivity and attaining food sufficiency in the Philippines, as well as protecting the environment towards building a safe community for the Filipinos.
With the efforts of KPI, a subsidiary of Kubota Corporation of Japan, and RUFMSC, developer and manufacturer of high quality machinery and equipment to promote and support farm mechanization, it could make the farmers become economically productive and attain sustainability in the operation of their respective farms.
Modern farming equipment and machinery like those being offered by the Kubota Group and RUFMSC can help improve productivity, and eventually uplift the lives of the Filipino farmers.
Farm mechanization can also help in achieving food security in the country, and eventually increase the income of the farmers.
In realizing the objectives of farm mechanization, farmers are not only lowering the losses on production and postharvest, but can also help in achieving sustainability and efficiency.
Through mechanization, farming can become more sustainable and not as labor intensive as before because it can provide the stakeholders with more time to attend to other pertinent matters regarding agricultural development.
But increasing the levels of farm mechanization does not necessarily mean the need for bigger investments in acquiring farm machinery and equipment because the return of investment can be achieved in a shorter period of time, as manifested by stakeholders who have already started to mechanize their farming operations in different regions of the country.
Farm mechanization can significantly contribute to the development of the country’s agricultural sector due to its efficiency, effectivity, and being environmentally-friendly.
With KPI’s “For Earth, For Life” motto which is anchored on the belief that food, water, and the environment are indispensable for human beings, and RUFMSC’s mission to manufacture high quality and sturdy agricultural machinery and equipment, they are bound to continue to support efforts for the attainment of a prosperous life for the Filipinos, at the same time, protecting the environment./PN
