High-yield corn seeds eyed for Camarines Sur farmers

by LA Gavino

Pili, Camarines Sur (13 October) -- Some 350 sacks of open pollinated variety (OPV) yellow corn seeds will be allocated to 12 clustered municipalities and two cities of Camarines Sur in line with the provincial government's thrust to establish new corn production areas in the province.

According to the Provincial Agriculture Office (PAO) here, the allocation of the OPV corn seeds is carried out under the GMA corn program.

"Corn seeds of the high-yield variety from Isabela province will be distributed for free to local corn farmers of the clustered municipalities and cities," he said.

Recipient-localities of the OPV yellow corn seeds distribution include Calabanga, Pili, Ocampo, Sagnay, Tigaon, Goa, Lagonoy, Baao, Bula, Buhi, Sipocot, Nabua, Naga City, and Iriga City.

The project is a segment of a comprehensive program launched by Camarines Sur Governor LRay Villafuerte underscoring agricultural productivity that will ensure sufficient food supply, especially among residents in far flung areas.

Corn is also extensively used in feed preparations for livestock in the province.

PAO has also stressed that support to corn farmers is being augmented to encourage them to work hard to attain higher yields. A master list of corn farmers is being prepared to identify the recipients of the corn seeds. (MMEC/PIA) [top]
