Rice prices are expected to drop when trade
protection shall have finally been relaxed
in compliance with our international trade
agreements. To remain in the market, farmers
have to strategize on how to compete in terms
of quality and price of their products. This policy
brief tackles Hybrid Rice as one of the ways to help
farmers survive in a market with tight competition,
especially with cheaper imported rice. It discusses
implications of hybrid rice on the country’s total
rice supply and on farmers’ competitiveness;
identifies the factors that make farmers adopt
hybrid rice; and presents possible steps to hasten
its adoption.
