DA 6 targets 300K ha
for rice in August

The Department of Agriculture in Western Visayas is targeting to cover 300,000 hectares for rice in August, its director, Remelyn Recoter, said.

Recoter said the distribution of seeds and fertilizers is ongoing in local government units through the city and municipal agriculturists.

“While the region’s planting for the wet season has been delayed due to delayed onset of the rainy season, we are still hopeful that the targeted 300,000 plus hectares of rice areas will be planted by August,” she said.
