CATBALOGAN CITY, Samar, Jan. 9 (PIA) -- Samar province has enough rice supply, according to Rosario Cadiz, NFA-Samar economist.
This, she said, amidst the issue that Samar’s rice may not be suffice as Leyte ricefields had been flooded.
“We all know that Samar business men get their stock from Leyte farmers who produce more than they need,” said Cadiz.
At present, some 72,209 sacks are in the warehouses of NFA-Catbalogan, while some 37,523 are in Calbayog, NFA shared.(NBQ-PIA 8 Samar)
