Harvest Festival Agriculture Secretary William Dar joined local farmers and officials of the Department of Agriculture (DA) in Eastern Visayas during the harvest festival at the 95.34-hectare Hybrid Rice Demo Farm in Hubang, Alang-alang, Leyte on October 12, 2021.

The activity highlighted the 13th National Rice Technology Forum organized by DA, National Rice Board, and local government unit of Alang-alang.

The forum, held semi-annually, focuses on the promotion of hybrid rice and other modern rice technology. It also features compact rice demonstration area planted to hybrid and inbred rice varieties. The ongoing campaign seeks to push for at least two metric ton yield advantage from the current inbred variety the Alangalang farmers are using. (Photo by Alan Jay Jacalan, DA-AFID)
