Zambo Norte rice farmers urged to adopt synchronized rice planting

Dipolog City (4 November) -- The Office of the Provincial Agriculturist of Zamboanga del Norte recently advised all rice farmers in the province to adopt the synchronized rice planting method to combat the deadly rice disease called tungro.

Provincial Supervising Agriculturist Maybel Bustaliņo appealed for the help of all barangay captains in the affected barangays in the province to have the rice farmers observe a synchronized cropping schedule.

She stressed that there should be a time gap between harvest and planting to prevent the tungro virus to perpetuate.

"We cannot prevent the virus to spread; it has no cure at the moment," Bustaliņo stressed.

Bustaliņo hoped that the barangays could pass an ordinance outlining the planting time in their respective areas.

"Although a synchronized farming entails a little sacrifice on the part of the farmers, it must be observed to effect bountiful harvest," Bustaliņo explained. (PF/PIA-ZN) [top]
