Thirty-six farmers in Brgy. Bacsay, Luna, Apayao have learned how to produce hybrid rice and market it through the recently concluded Training on Hybrid Rice Commercialization. This is under the station’s Community Organized Hybrid Rice Farming and Marketing (COHFarM) project.
The training was an initial step to prepare the participants for the Season-long Training on Hybrid Seed Production and Certification, simultaneous with the establishment of learning fields on AxR hybrid seed production this 2022 dry season.
The training was carried out in partnership with DA-Regional Field Offices, Municipal/City Agriculture Offices, local government units, and lawmakers in the implementation of the Rice Development Initiatives for Cagayan Valley and CAR Environments.
