DA trains Central Luzon rice center handlers
The Department of Agriculture held a training workshop for recipients of the Rice Processing Centers in Central Luzon, the country’s biggest rice producer.
The training, which was held in San Fernando City in Pampanga, sought to improve the operation of RPCs and help their handlers take care of the facilities.
Also discussed were the current status of the rice industry in Central Luzon, and the marketing and planning aspects of operating a rice processing center.
The DA also awarded milling facilities and mechanical dryers to farmers to reduce post-harvest losses and improve rice quality.
