The Provincial Government of La Union (PGLU) led by Gov. Francisco Emmanuel R. Ortega III in partnership with ABONO Party-List distributed equipment and supplies to farmers on July 13, 2017 at the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist (OPAg) Grounds, City of San Fernando, La Union.

The event was attended by Barangay Council Members, farmer associations and cooperatives from the different municipalities and city of the province. A total of 289 jetmatic pumps, 578 Galvanized Iron (GI) pipes, 37 Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) pipes, and 142 rolls of hose were distributed to the beneficiaries.
Boosting the agricultural sector is one of the top priorities of Governor Pacoy towards establishing La Union as the Heart of Agri-Tourism in Northern Luzon by 2025. According to him, the province will be more prosperous when its strength in agriculture is augmented not only in terms of crop yield but also supplemented with tourism.
