𝐏𝐚𝐥𝐚𝐲𝐀𝐫𝐚𝐥𝐚𝐧: Paghahanda ng Lupa (DA-PhilRice)


Dream for the farmers

Hipolita Ayuban, or Ma’am Polite, as she is called, has been serving in the government for 25 years. She has been a municipal agriculturist in Alicia, Bohol for 2 years now. Not only is she a doting mother of four, but she is also a doting MA for the rice farmers of Alicia.

Ayuban constantly reminds farmers that it is not enough to use inorganic fertilizer alone every chance she can get.

One of the drives of Ayuban is to eliminate the practice of burning rice straw. Through her persistent effort to educate farmers, the 54-year-old municipal agriculturist is happy to report that 80% of the farmers stopped burning rice straw.

My goal is for the farmers to be sustainable and not lose the enthusiasm to plant rice”, Ayuban said when asked what she wants to happen in her time as an agriculturist. “What I hope is that farmers would not stop planting rice, that they would continually produce rice because they are already earning more from it.” she continued.

She also added that local government must focus their energy, time, and effort on farmers as they are our food producers. (DA-PhilRice Negros, FB)

Haka-haka sa pagpapalayan, iwasan!

Ikinuwento ni Rodel Guevarra, mula sa Pagsanjan, Laguna, ang pananaw ng mga kapwa niyang magsasaka sa sakit na tungro.

Anya, maraming naniniwala na ito ay dala ng binhi sa halip na insektong green leaf hopper.

Kaya naman ikinatuwa niya ang bagong babasahin mula sa Rice Competitiveness Enhancement Fund – Rice Extension Service Program (RCEF-RESP) dahil nagsasaad ito ng tamang impormasyon ukol sa iba’t ibang sakit at peste sa palayan.

Marami pa ako kailangan malaman tungkol sa mga sakit ng palay. Kaya malaking tulong ang mga reading materials mula sa RCEF Program,” sabi ng farmer-leader.

Ang RCEF-Extension Program ay ipinapatupad ng DA-Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice), DA-Philippine Center for Postharvest Development and Mechanization (PHilMech), DA-Agricultural Training Institute (ATI), at Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA) katuwang ang local government units sa ilalim ng Rice Tariffication Law.
