10 - Day Regional Agri-Weather Information

DEKAD NO. 06      11 – 20 FEBRUARY 2024

Philippine Agri-Weather Forecast
The weather systems that will likely affect the whole country are the northeast monsoon, easterlies, and localized thunderstorms. Generally, partly cloudy to cloudy skies with isolated rainshowers and thunderstorms will be experienced over the whole archipelago. During the mid of the dekad, cloudy skies with scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms will be experienced over the eastern section of Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao while the extreme Northern Luzon will have cloudy skies with isolated light rains. Winds coming from east to southeast will prevail over the extreme Northern Luzon while winds coming from east to northeast will prevail over the rest of the country. The same weather condition will likely prevail throughout the forecast period. Throughout the rest of the forecast period, moderate to rough seas will be experienced over the extreme Northern Luzon which will progress over the eastern section of the country. The rest of the archipelago will experience slight to moderate seas.
ENSO ALERT SYSTEM STATUS: EL NIÑO ADVISORY NO. 8 (updated as of 06 February 2024) Strong and mature El Niño is expected to continue through February 2024. Majority of global climate models suggest that El Niño will likely persist until the March – April – May 2024 season with a transition to ENSO – neutral in the April – May – June 2024 season. El Niño increases the likelihood of below-normal rainfall conditions, which could bring negative impacts (such as dry spells and droughts) in some areas of the country that will likely be manifested during the last quarter up to the first quarter of the year. This may adversely affect the different climate-sensitive sectors such as the water resources, agriculture, energy, health, public safety and other key sectors in the country.
Farm Advisories

DA adopts low-water-use strategies amid El Niño, allowing farmers to continue planting rice
The Department of Agriculture (DA) will implement rice farming strategies that require less water, allowing farmers to continue planting rice in the face of El Niño. Complying with President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr.’s directive to the DA to assist Filipino farmers amid El Niño, acting DA Assistant Secretary for Operations U-Nichols Manalo said implementation of low-water-use technology is underway to mitigate the weather phenomenon’s impact on farmers. During the Task Force El Niño meeting on February 12, the DA official identified the farming strategies as “Alternate Wetting and Drying” which uses less water for farming, and “Quick Turn Around” or QTA which allows immediate rice replanting right after harvest. “AWD is a water-saving technology that rice farmers can apply to reduce their water use in irrigated fields,” Asec. Manalo said during the task force meeting chaired by Defense Secretary Gilbert Teodoro Jr. “On the other hand, QTA is a strategy wherein all rice farms after harvest shall quickly replant immediately without waiting for the months of the succeeding planting season to begin,” the DA official said. As of the briefing, Asec. Manalo said the DA has reached out to more than a million farmers for implementation of the water-saving technology in nearly 15,000 hectares of rice areas. Likewise, the DA official said farmers have already began replanting in more than 5,500 hectares of rice areas. The agency aims to implement the quick-turn-around strategy in more than 26,000 hectares. The DA immediately implemented these measures in compliance with President Marcos’ Executive Order No. 53 which directs the government to streamline, reactivate, and reconstitute the old El Niño task forces under EO No. 16 (s. 2001) and Memorandum Order No. 38 (s. 2019). Signed on January 19, 2024, President Marcos’ executive order directs the task force to develop a comprehensive disaster preparedness and rehabilitation plan for El Niño and La Niña to provide “systematic, holistic, and results-driven interventions” to help the public cope and minimize their devastating effects. President Marcos designated Secretary Teodoro as the task force chairperson, while Science and Technology Secretary Renato U. Solidum was designated as co-chairperson. The President also designated the following officials as task force members: Secretary of Environment and Natural
Resources Maria Antonia Yulo Loyzaga, Secretary of Agriculture Francisco Tiu Laurel Jr., Secretary of Health Teodoro J. Herbosa, and Secretary of National Economic and Development Authority Arsenio M. Balisacan. ##
President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. and Agriculture Secretary Francisco P. Tiu Laurel Jr. lead the distribution today of the farm inputs and other assistance to farmers in the Caraga Region who have been adversely affected by the recent weather disturbances. The total aid package for the two regions, Caraga and Davao, which includes more than P16 million worth of rice, corn, and vegetables, as well as concessional loans, will be turned over to 16,521 farmers whose livelihoods were severely affected by heavy rains, flooding caused by the northeast monsoon, the shear line it stoked, and the trough of a lowpressure area. The DA Regional Field Office in Caraga—an administrative region that includes the provinces of Agusan del Sur, Agusan del Norte, Dinagat Island, Surigao del Norte and Surigao del Sur— already delivered P3.2 million worth of rice and assorted vegetable seeds, and rodenticides to the Provincial Agricultural Office of Agusan del Sur to help farmers quickly recover from the damage caused by the weather disturbances. Meantime, the DA Regional Field Office in Davao has readied P13.4 million worth of rice, corn and vegetable seeds to distribute to affected farmers. The DA will also make available to each affected farmer as much as P25,000 of three-year, zero interest loans from the Survival and Recovery Loan Program from the Agricultural Credit Policy Council and assistance through the Quick Response Fund for early recovery and rehabilitation of affected areas. According to the latest DA estimate, the damage and losses due to the shear line, Northeast monsoon, and the trough of an LPA have reached P359.8 million in Davao and Caraga. A total of 15,792 hectares of farmlands were totally damaged, while 7,449 hectares sustained partial damage but still have a chance to recover. The losses in terms of volume total 753 metric tons of palay, 2,006 metric tons of corn, and 608 metric tons of highvalue crops. “We are hopeful that the interventions and assistance we have and will extend to our farmers here in Caraga and in the Davao provinces will mitigate the adverse impact of these weather disturbances on their lives and livelihoods and help in their quick recovery,” said Secretary Tiu Laurel. ###

Iwasan ang sobrang pataba na nagdudulot ng pagkapal ng dahon na umaakit sa mga peste. Mag-split application ng 2-3 beses pataba lalo na ng nitroheno. Magpatubig gamit ang Alternate Wetting and Drying (AWD) technology. Sa AWD, kailangan lang magpatubig kapag ubos na ang tubig sa observation well. Kapag umatake sa panahon ng pagbubuntis hanggang paghinog (25 pataas na BPH kada tundos), panatilihin ang malalim na tubig upang umangat sila at matambangan ng mga kaibigang kulisap. Sa susunod na taniman: Magtanim ng barayting matibay sa BPH gaya ng PSB Rc2, PSB Rc10, NSIC Rc 212, 222, 22, 226, 298, at 300.
