NFA to Aklan farmers: Sell your palay as gov't reserve for lean months, emergencies

by Venus G. Villanueva

Linabuan Sur, Banga, Aklan (14 August) -- The National Food Authority (NFA) here is enjoining Aklan farmers to sell their palay produce to the food agency so the government will have buffer stock to reserve for lean months, emergencies and calamities, man-made or natural.

According to NFA-Aklan OIC Erna Young, the food agency in Aklan, with its local office and Grains Center in Linabuan Sur, Banga, Aklan, is currently buying clean, white and dry palay at P17.00 per kilogram.

This price, according to Ms. Young, is both offered to individual farmers and farmers' cooperatives or groups, with the following price breakdown : government support price - P11.00/kg., and additional special procurement incentive - P6.00 for a total of P17.00.

Farmers selling their palay to NFA-Aklan must bring their farmer's passbook, while walk-in sellers like agricultural workers, thresher operators and others could also sell their palay to the NFA provided they have with them endorsements/certification from authority or agency like the National Irrigation Administration, Department of Agrarian Reform, Department of Agriculture, Cooperative Development Authority and Punong Barangay, Municipal Agriculturist Officers and Local Chief Executives.

NFA-Aklan's Grains Center is open from Monday to Friday while its mobile procurement team regularly goes to distant-palay producing areas to buy the farmers' produce there. (PIA) [top]
