NFA Ifugao to procure palay from local farmers

by Vency D. Bulayungan

LAGAWE, Ifugao (20 October) -- The Local Office of the National Food Authority (NFA) here is ready to procure palay from the farmers here in an effort to uplift their economic condition.

NFA manager Emmanuel Villanueva said their office will buy palay from legitimate individual farmers and farmers' cooperatives.

"This is one way of helping our poor farmers cope up with the present situation wherein they need money for other needs such as the education of their children,"Villanueva said.

Villanueva disclosed that for the wet crop, NFA has targeted 3,000 bags with corresponding procurement fund of P4.2 M ready for payment.

"The palay should be clean and dry with a moisture content of 14%. The NFA buying price is P10.25 per kilogram for individual farmers and P10.50 per kilogram from cooperatives inclusive of incentives.

In order to facilitate the said procurement in the whole province, the NFA fielded one buying station at the NFA warehouse in Barangay Namillangan in Alfonso Lista and another team at the warehouse here.

All farmer cooperatives as well as individual farmers are encouraged to have their farmers passbook revalidated at the NFA Office here. Those without passbook have to fill up a farmer's information sheet which is available at the NFA Provincial Office.

Applicants should submit two 1x1 ID pictures and xerox copy of title or tax declaration of landholdings prior to issuance of passbook. (PIA-Ifugao) [top]
