In 2003, DOLE IS Field Office gave one unit of kuliglig to the same association. The Bungro Farmers’ Association, headed by Mr. Eddie Sevilleja, has been a stalwart in agricultural technology and the provision of farm inputs and implements to its members. The association was a runner-up as best farmer’s organization in the SIGLAT Awards given by the Provincial Government of Ilocos Sur last February 2011.
