Mapanique, San Pascual, Masbate – This dry season 2022, the PhilRice Bicol techno-demo team has established an additional 6-ha varietal technology demonstration site under the RCEF – Seed Program.

This aims to help small-scale farmers in Burias Island become competitive and breeze into modern rice production through the use of high-yielding inbred varieties and new farming technologies and machinery.

In partnership with the LGU of San Pascual and its municipal agriculture office headed by Alona Morales, seven local farmers will become primary beneficiaries of PalaySikatan.

It will help promote the adoption of inbred certified seeds and integrated crop management (PalayCheck) through efficient and cost-reducing rice mechanization interventions.
