The Department of Agriculture (DA) led by Secretary William Dar formally opened the joint celebration of the National Rice Awareness Month and the 5th Organic Agriculture Month on November 4, 2019 at the DA Central Office in Quezon City.

With the themes, “Go Local with Rice! Help Farmers Rise!”  and “OA4K: Organikong Agrikultura sa Kumikitang Kabuhayan para sa Kalusugan at Kapaligiran,” the activities reflect the DA vision of a food-secure country with prosperous farmers and fisherfolk.

During the month-long celebration, various rice and organic products will be available for sale at the Kadiwa ni Ani at Kita stalls located at the DA Central Office lobby. (Photos by Gian Carlo Luague, DA-AFID)
