Farming Advisories
IN AREAS AFFECTED BY LA NIÑA
Liptocorisa (destructive grain-sucking rice-bugs) can be abundant and can attack any time during prolonged rainfall especially during La Niña, be vigilant and always inspect your rice fields and/or ask precautionary measures to your local agriculturist. In the event of the ongoing La Niña, one may choose flood resistant rice varieties that are suitable in your farm or ask the advice of the agricultural experts. Livestock/domesticated animals are susceptible to contract diseases during the rainy periods, also, continuing rains can form stagnating water/ponds that can serve as a good mosquito breeding ground, and constant cleaning of the surroundings may stop the disease to proliferate.
During La Niña, big trees near houses may have weak/dead branches that can fall and cause damage to houses and animal shelters and can hurt inhabitants during strong winds and heavy rains, as precautionary measure, cutting of excess leaves and branches of big trees is advisable. In addition, pruning leaves of banana that will likely be broken can be saved from total destruction.

IN AREAS AFFECTED BY SHEAR LINE, NORTHEAST MONSOON AND MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINS

Be alert and extra careful to those living in low lying areas and near mountain slopes due to possible flooding and landslides; During northeast monsoon with moderate to heavy rains, farmers are advised/ reminded to do cover cropping, land terracing and waterway de-clogging 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.

FOR WET (IRRIGATED) AND MOIST AREAS
Livestock/domesticated animals are susceptible to contact diseases during the rainy period especially if it is La Niña, always keep animal shelters and its surroundings clean, dry and well ventilated. A clean environment can minimize the possibility of covid-19 infection. Keep the goats/ruminants shut in the barn, well protected from draft and provided with clean solid floor. Land and seedbed preparation; planting and transplanting; removal of weeds and cultivation, harvesting of matured crops, use covered vans in delivery of goods in the market; planting of fruit trees to replace the old ones.

FOR DRY (RAINFED) AREAS WITH LIGHT TO MODERATE WINDS

Watering crops during early morning and evening periods will help alleviate stress on crops. Sun drying of newly harvested rice and corn; watering activities or irrigation using pump in dry and rainfed areas. Spraying insecticides or fertilizer application in farm areas with light winds when needed.


Fishing Advisories

Gale warning is raised over the northern seaboard of the Northern Luzon (Batanes, northern coast of Ilocos Norte and the northern coast of Cagayan including Babuyan Islands). Fishing boats and other small seacraft are advised not to venture out into the sea while larger sea vessels are alerted against big waves. Moderate to rough seas are expected over the rest of the country. Be reminded to be very careful in going out fishing specially those using small sea craft. Always bring emergency kit. Be updated for the latest weather update and farm advisories.

Farm Advisories

No need to panic. We have enough food! – Dar

Agriculture Secretary William Dar said, “Buying more food than what we require deprives others, thus causing an artificial shortage and price spikes”.

Due to sticter movement on areas under Alert Level 3, Secretary Dar pleads the consumers to avoid panic buying of food. Based on their inventory of rice commodity, there is enough supply until the next harvest season which is in April. Also, there is enough supply of lowland and highland vegetables. Delivery of agricultural inputs and outputs were guaranteed not to be hampered especially on areas affected by Typhoon Odette.

“OneDA Family” 2021 Yearender: Philippines remains resilient, expects another record palay harvest, amid challenges

Despite the losses due to the passage of Typhoon Odette, initial estimates of 2021 palay production could reach 19.95 million metric tons (MMT), which will surpass last year’s output according to DA’s Philippine Integrated Rice Program (PIRP) Director Dionisio Alvindia.

In the next three years, DA Rice Competitiveness Enhancement Fund (RCEF) of PIRP could attain the following targets:

  • Average palay harvest of 5 MT/ha, from 3.64 MT/ha;
  • Average palay production cost of P9/kg to P10/kg;
  • Decrease in postharvest losses by 2% to 3%; and
  • Increase in average farmers’ gross income by P10,000/ha, according to studies by the DA’s Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice). The increase in yield and decrease in seeding rate translate to a decrease in the cost of production (COP), thus providing farmers an additional gross income of P10,000 per hectare, at P19/kg of palay (14% moisture content or MC).
Other RCEF interventions are as follows:
  • Provided a total of 1,144,640 20-kg bags (74% of the target) of certified inbred seeds to 372 municipalities/cities in 42 RCEF-covered provinces for dry season (DS) 2022, from Sept. 16, 2021 to Mar. 15, 2022. (DA-PhilRice)
  • Provided a total of 1,764,841 20-kg bags to 713,052 farmers, tilling a total of 813,909 hectares, in 739 municipalities/cities in 42 RCEF provinces for 2021 wet season (WS) March 16, 2021 to September 15, 2021. (DA-PhilRice)
  • Distributed 11,923 units of various machinery and equipment, procured 8,628 units for 6,284 FCAs and LGUs, benefiting 682,502 farmers. (DA’s Philippine Center for Postharvest Development and Mechanization (PhilMech)
  • Trained 58,728 farmers, extension workers and specialists; developed, produced and distributed 1.26 million sets of various IEC materials; and assisted 1,231 FCAs on enterprise development. (RCEF extension component – DA’s Agricultural Training Institute (ATI), PHilMech, PhilRice, and Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA))
  • A total of P927 million was lent to 5,288 individual borrowers and FCAs, with a combined membership of 32,714 farmers. (Land Bank of the Philippines and Development Bank of the Philippines)

For additional knowledge to attain potential crop production, farmers are encouraged to join government projects. These will enable them to learn and experience science-based crops and cropping system technologies and gain from such projects’ activities as sample advisories like planting dates, early warning for pest and disease infestation, water management strategies for specific areas, and daily weather condition notifications are also available (e.g., ACIAR, SARAI projects, etc.).
