OPA sees delay in rice
production in Neg Occ

The Office of the Provincial Agriculturist admitted that crop damage brought about by heavy monsoon rains last week might delay the rice production in the province, especially those reported as totally damaged areas.

Provincial Agriculturist Japhet Masculino said on Thursday that with crop damage this month that reached P3.3 million, areas that were affected might experience delays in rice cropping as some crops affected were at seedling or vegetative stage.

“If the areas are totally damaged, they might restart their cropping that might cause delay and having lesser cropping seasons this year,” Masculino said.
