Be alert and extra careful to those living in low lying areas and near mountain slopes due to possible flooding and landslides; During the rainy season, farmers are advised/ reminded to do cover cropping, land terracing and waterway declogging activities. This is to prevent soil erosion and provide humus, regulate water, reduce weed, increase biodiversity and improve farming as a whole. Continuous wet weather promotes fungal development and can cause damage to stored farm products, reduce the quality, viability and market price of the grains. Thus, it is advised to keep barns and crop storage rooms to be in good, dry and well -ventilated condition. Clean creeks, canals and ditches; store harvested crops in elevated, well ventilated and covered places. Water impounding is advisable during heavy rains for future use.
