FARM ADVISORIES
    Farmers are reminded that for sundrying, spread palay in concrete pavements at 2- 4 cm thick, and mix every 30 minutes for uniform drying and to prevent overheating. Use mechanical dryer if available. Harvested palay must be threshed immediately to minimize field losses and grain quality problems.  Likewise, farmers and farm owners are urged to support the local government’s projects and activities in the current trend of farming practices and techniques that can upgrade awareness, to understand and learn to adapt not only in climate change but also acquire knowledge in business farming.
