The resourcefulness and initiative of farmers in La Union contributed to the success of palay production this second cropping season.

This was stated by Provincial Agriculturists Imelda J. Sannadan of the Office of the Provincial Agriculturist (OPAg), as a harvest of more than 4.9 metric tons of palay per hectare in March 2015 was recorded by their office. The harvest came from the more than 9,000 hectares of irrigated agricultural land that were planted by farmers after the first cropping season.

The farmer’s prompt tilling of the soil after harvesting in the main cropping season is in anticipation to the drying of the land Sannadan said. This is also the reason why as the summer season came, farmers in La Union had already harvested their palay.

Sannadan expressed gladness on the cleverness that was manifested by the farmers. She said this will not only help the living conditions of the farmers but more importantly, the sufficiency and stability of supply of rice in the entire province is assured.

With their desire to assist farmers in La Union in the next main cropping season, this early the OPAg has started allocating high breed of palay seeds. Through the High Yielding Technology Adoption (HYTA) Project which is under the rice banner program of the Provincial Government of La Union (PGLU) and funded by the Department of Agriculture (DA) - Region 1, more than 20,000 packs of palay seeds which can supply more than 6,400 hectares of agricultural land will be distributed to members of Farmers Associations.
