Techno Demo Image 1
The ocular inspection at the LGU’s Techno Demo Farm

The LGU's Techno Demo Farm having an area of 2.7 hectares is located at Marasat Pequeño, San Mateo, Isabela. The cash prize of the LGU as a 3-time winner (2011-2013) in the Rice Achievers Award - LGU category was utilized in purchasing this farmland.

Said farm was planted with rice by its previous owner. In the first year of its acquisition by the LGU, it was also planted with rice and gradually converted into an integrated farm. The area planted with rice gradually decreased to have place for the corn, vegetables, banana, fruit-bearing trees and other structures such as vermi compost facility, greenhouse or nursery and a 100-capacity training center. For this purpose, the farm was enclosed through a fence with concrete posts. A 5000 sq.m. fish pond is currently being  constructed in the farm. Poultry and livestock pen will also be built in the said farm through a plan in the paper print that was collaboratively made and was consulted among the experts from PhilRice, Agricultural Training Institute and Department of Agriculture.
