NFA Ifugao assures enough rice supply even with El Nino

by Mhars B. Lihgawon

Lagawe, Ifugao (27 February) -- Amid fears of rice supply shortage due to the long dry spell, the National Food Authority (NFA) assured that its rice grain stock is enough to sustain the needs of the people here.

NFA-Ifugao Economist Carmenzita Galvez made the assurance after the Provincial Agriculture Environment and Natural Resources Office (PAENRO) reported that Ifugao has incurred P62 million worth of crop damages due to the dry spell.

Galvez stated that NFA has enough rice grain stock to meet the demand of the public most especially the indigents who could not afford to buy commercial rice.

"At present, there are 10,000 sacks of rice stocked in our warehouse enough to supply the needs of consumers despite the dry spell," she said.

Galvez also announced that the province is expecting an additional 10,000 sacks of rice to be delivered in the coming days to augment the current stock pile of NFA.

Meanwhile, NFA is currently accrediting additional Institutionalized Bigasan Sa Palengke (IBSP) outlets to sustain rice sufficiency most especially in the far flung barangays of the province.

Galvez explained that the accreditation of IBSP will end on March 13 to give chance to those who want to avail of the outlets.She said that there were only seven outlets in the province that selling NFA rice. (PIA Ifugao) [top]
