PhilRice promotes quality seed, renewable energy in Lakbay Palay
Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) recently promoted the use of quality seeds and renewable energy in farming during its week-long Lakbay Palay Dry Season.
A statement showed that about 1, 500 participants composed of farmers, students, extension workers, and researchers participated in this year’s Lakbay Palay Dry Season, which was held at the PhilRice Central Experiment Station in Maligaya, Science City of Muñoz, Nueva Ecija.
Lakbay palay is a field day held by PhilRice twice a year (during the dry and wet seasons) to showcase its rice farming technologies to a wide range of rice stakeholders.
For this season, the Lakbay Palay’s theme centers on the use of quality seed and renewable energy.
Activities for this week-long event include farm visits, distribution of rice knowledge products, and onsite expert dialogue/consultation.
Lakbay-Palay Wet Season 2018 is scheduled in September this year.
