Cloud seeding to go on until rain comes

Negros Occ. (25 April) -- Cloud seeding operations in this province will continue until southwest monsoon wind sets in bringing the much-needed rains after long and dry summer days.

Project Division Officer III Lawrence Ledesma of the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist said the cloud seeding team have already completed the first ten flying hours injecting salt to rains clouds that has brought sporadic rains in the different parts of the province.

The efforts, however, is not yet enough to secure the viability of standing crops so that another six to eight hours operation is under negotiation, he said.

Ledesma told PIA that ideally, a three- week cloud seeding activity is good for the province until the rainy season comes in sometime next month.

He said some southern Negros Occ. towns and cities were most badly affected by the drought and the artificial rain came just on time to mitigate the heat's further adverse effects on crops. (PIA-LOL) [top]
