DA-13 conducts techno-demo on Chinese hybrid rice

by Robert E. Roperos

Butuan City (October 6) -- The Regional Office of the Department of Agriculture (DA) recently conducted a technology demonstration on Chinese hybrid rice at Barangay Kinamlotan, this city.

The activity was attended by 176 farmers coming from nine barangays who learned on the advantages and benefits the farmers and consumers can get in planting hybrid rice.

Through this, rice production is high enough to cater the needs of the consuming public. Tang Yek Shak, a Chinese national who is an expert in the production of Chinese hybrid rice said one of the advantages of planting this type of rice is that, the crop can be harvested in three months after it was planted.

Also in attendance during the activity are Butuan City Mayor Democrito Plaza II, officials of DA-Caraga and the Regional Office of National Irrigation Administration (NIA) with the City Agriculture Office headed by City Agriculturist Salvador Satorre. (PIA-13) [top]
