Author: DA Communications Group | 5 August 2020

Agriculture Secretary William Dar is confident that the Philippine agriculture and fisheries sector will continue to survive, reboot, and grow amid different challenges including the pandemic.

Secretary Dar delivered the State of Philippine Agriculture Report with optimism on August 5, 2020, a year after he returned at the helm of the Department of Agriculture (DA) and birthed DA’s twin objectives of “Masaganang Ani at Mataas na Kita.”

He reported that despite consecutive problems such as a decline in palay prices, the presence of African Swine Fever, Taal Volcano eruption, and the pandemic, the DA and agri-fishery stakeholders made sure that there is enough food for every Filipino.

In addition, the agriculture sector grew by 0.5 percent in the second quarter despite the pandemic according to the Philippine Statistics Authority. (Photos by Rita dela Cruz of DA StratComms and Alan Jay Jacalan of DA-AFID)
