TOFARM 2013 wants to identify more unsung heroes in the fields, seas and urban areas from North Luzon to Southern Mindanao. They revived the last year that acknowledge the increasingly important role that the farming sector has played in boosting the economy and to inspire more young people to turn to agriculture as a livelihood.

This year’s TOFARM has added a new category – the Woman Farmer – in the annual search. “This is to recognize the growing number of women who have carved names for themselves in various agricultural fronts and who have brought recognition to the country through their individual or collective endeavors,” said Rommel Cunanan, TOFARM Project Chairman.

Many people from the Agriculture industry joined this event and positive responses they have with the Q & A portion with the TOFARM Project Chairman Mr. Rommel Cunanan, Universal Harvester through its Executive Vice President Milagros Ong How and some of the recipient of the 2012 TOFARM awardees.

For her part, UHI’s Mrs. Milagros Ong How said “TOFARM 2012 only scratched the surface in identifying farmers with best practices and extraordinary achievements. In TOFARM 2013 we want to explore new territories and discover other achievers who have not yet been recognized for their contributions to our country. This year, we want to widen the search to include outstanding women farmers. This is probably why we are launching TOFARM 2013 on International Woman’s Month.”

UHI, a progressive Filipino company established in 2003, is involved in the direct manufacturing, local distribution and exportation of a number of world-class quality fertilizers.

TOFARM will give out 12 awards this year, seven in the individual category and five in the group category.

These are :

Farmer, Fisherfolk, Livestock, Agri-Entrepreneur, Young Farmer, Agricultural Innovator, Urban/City Farmer and Woman Farmer in the individual category; and Agriculture Cooperative, Family Farmer, Local Government Unit, Agriculture Initiatives and People’s Choice in the group category.

    Hello! Quick question that’s completely off topic. Do you know
    how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when viewing from
    my iphone4. I’m trying to find a theme or plugin that might
    be able to correct this problem. If you have any suggestions, please
    share. Cheers!
