Beyond Buzzwords: Transforming Philippine Agriculture!

Awarding of Warehouses, Drying Facilities in Nueva Ecija

Author: DA Communications Group | 26 February 2020

The Department of Agriculture (DA) Central Luzon Regional Field Office (RFO) will provide eight warehouses and drying facilities to the Province of Nueva Ecija within the next three months as additional support to the local rice farmers.

On Feb. 25, 2020, Agriculture Secretary William Dar and RFO Director Crispulo Bautista, Jr. said that the facilities also serve as a recognition and reward to the province’s initiative in helping farmers recover from the falling prices of palay by buying and processing them.

Secretary Dar stressed that local government units (LGUs) must be at the forefront of development, particularly with the implementation of the Rice Tariffication Law (RTL), which is considered as a game-changer in the country’s agriculture sector.

He implored the LGUs, farmers, traders, and consumers to support the local rice industry and the proper implementation of the RTL to realize its benefits in the long run. (Photos by Gian Carlo Luague, DA AFID)
