Correct Element, Amount and Timing or correct EAT to fertilize will surely be remembered by 32 farmers from Remedios T. Romualdez, Agusan del Norte, after the five days Short Course on Pest and Nutrient Management in Rice conducted by Rice Competitiveness Enhancement Fund – Rice Extension Service Program (RCEF-RESP) DA-Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) Agusan.
As per Jodel T. Llanto, farmer from brgy. Balangbalang, “We spend less on fertilizer because of MOET, we learned what our plants really need. “
Besides proper nutrient management, the training also teaches the identification of insect friends and enemies in order to limit and use pesticides in the field. (FB, DA-PhilRice Agusan)
