FARM ADVISORIES
Farmers are reminded to some tips that maybe useful for pest management before transplanting: For insects, follow regular planting period (not too early or late) to avoid pest infestation. For diseases, destroy all infected rice stubbles, rations, weeds and others. For weeds, thorough land preparation can control most weeds. For gloden snail, herd ducks in the field, hand pick snails, repair dikes and control water, put screen wires along water outlets, construct canalets near dikes and alternately drain and flood the fields so snails will transfer to canalets where they can be picked easily. And for rodents, destroy all breeeding sites of rodents. Conduct rat control campaign.

PRESS RELEASE
24 May 2017

START OF SOUTHWEST MONSOON

Southwesterly windflow has been dominant over the West Philippine Sea for several days now. This is due to the formation of semi-permanent trough over Northern Luzon-Taiwan area and the eastward migration of the North Pacific High Pressure Area which are the prominent indicators of the southwest monsoon onset in the country. 

Likewise, the prevailing weather condition in most parts of Luzon and Visayas particularly the western section is now warm and humid as characterized by occasional to frequent occurrences of afternoon-evening or early morning rainshowers and thunderstorms. These developments signify the approaching onset of rainy season under Type 1 climate covering the western parts of Luzon and Visayas.
