Author: DA-AFID | 2 December 2023

Agriculture Secretary Francisco Tiu Laurel, Jr. leads the groundbreaking rites for four units of large rice dryers in Dingras, Ilocos Norte.

To be constructed under the National Food Authority (NFA), the drying facility seeks to enhance the agency’s procurement capability, increase rice yield, and boost rice and corn storage capacity.

Valued at P130 million, the project will take 10 months to build, in time for the main rice harvest in 2024.### (Photos courtesy of DA 1 – RAFIS)
