The latest farm machine fabricated by the Central Isabela Agri Manufacturing Corporation (CIAMC) is a rice seed cleaner that can process 100 to 150 cavans of palay seed per hour.
It is equipped with an elevator that brings the palay to the hopper and down to the shaker with blower to clean the seeds of impurities like weed seeds and other debris. This machine, according to Eugene Gabriel, is needed by palay seed producers.
One unit, shown here with Romeo S. Vasquez (right) and a companion, costs P175,000. CIAMC has been fabricating various implements needed in mechanizing local farming. These include a two-row corn seeder, cassava uprooter, paddy wheel so that tractors will not get stuck in the mud, boom sprayer, forage harvester and others.
