Farmers in Isabela trained to make rice cake and rice wine
Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) trained farmers in Isabela on rice-based product processing as part of enterprise development among the cluster members of RiceBIS Isabela Community.
PhilRice said the training will help attain the RiceBIS program’s goal of increasing the income of farmers by linking them to the market.
In partnership with the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) Isabela, farmers were trained in making rice cake and rice wine.
Farmers were also taught how to make salted egg out of mallard duck eggs.
In Isabela, it is a common practice for farmers to raise mallard ducks after dry season’s harvest.
