We were lucky to visit the venue of a Harvest Festival that will be held on Sept. 8-10, 2016 at the Farm 2 of Agri-Tech Integrated Services Company (ATISCO) in Brgy.Talaga, Tanauan City.

The Harvest Festival is a project of the Local Government Unit of Tanauan City, ATISCO and the DA Region 4-A.

Branson tractors are very powerful and can easily pull heavy rotavator equipment that other brands have difficulty pulling. Branson tractors also very fuel-efficient. According to Dante Delima of ATISCO, the 55hP Branson tractor uses only P500 worth of diesel fuel to rotavate one hectare with two passes. On the other hand, a 47hp Japanese brand tractor consumes P700 worth of fuel to do the same job.
