Training for Bicol seed growers conducted

by LA Gavino

Pili, Camarines Sur (13 May) -- The Seed Growers/Producers Association of Camarines Sur underwent a three- day training to maintain high quality standards of seed production. The training dubbed "Retooling Course on Palay Seed Production, Certification, and Quality Control for Seed Growers Due For Re-accreditation."

Topics discussed during the training included: Morphology of the Rice Plant, Integrated Nutrient Management, Cultural Management Practices on Water and Fertilizer, Land Preparation, Integrated Pest Management, Crop Establishment, and Post Harvest Technology.

According to reports from the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist (OPA), the participants who attended the training came from the municipalities of Lagonoy, Libmanan, Goa, Iriga, Bula, Pili, Calabanga, Baao, Nabua, and Gainza.

The Provincial Government headed by Governor LRay Villafuerte is very supportive to this kind of activity because one of his priority programs is agricultural productivity. Thus, the need for continued support to the Seed Growers and Seed Production Program in order to achieve sustainability of rice production in the province and ultimately to improve economic condition of farmers.

With the past calamities and the recent El Niņo phenomenon, our rice production is expected to be a bit lower but the use of certified seeds can help boost production by 15%, according to agricultural experts.

The activity was sponsored by the Department of Agriculture Regional Field Unit 5 (DA-RFU5) and the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) in partnership with the provincial government through the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist (OPA). (MMEC/PIA) [top]
