Camarines Norte Province (23 February) -- The Provincial Agriculture Office here continues to support farmers in this province thru distribution of certified palay seeds for free.

Provincial Agriculturist Francia Pajares said that they have already started to distribute the additional 1,250 bags of palay certified seeds to the qualified farmers in the province.

She said that they have already distributed last November some 8,384 bags of palay certified seeds to farmers.

The palay certified seeds were provided by the national government through the Department of Agriculture (DA).

She added that they also distributed some 11,888 pockets of bio-fertilizer for palay, vegetables and pineapple also for free.

Meanwhile, Provincial Manager Eliseo Caliwag of the National Food Authority (NFA) assures public of the availability of rice in their barangay to help avert the rising prices of rice in the markets.

He said that the rice at P18.25 per kilo is available at the Tindahan Natin outlets and parokya in the barangay using access card.

He said that rice at P25.00 and P30.00 (commercial rice) are also available in the authorized retailers outlets in the markets of the province.

Manager Caliwag said that the province has 53,000 bags of palay, 15,000 bags of imported rice and 13,000 bags of local rice.

The NFA continues their milling of the palay bought at P17.00 per kilo at the barangay.

He added that the national government program of President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo continues the rice subsidy in order for the public to avail of cheaper rice. (PIA Cam. Norte) [top]
