Seed machine for bounty. Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala (5th from R) and Undersecretary Rosalina Bistoyong (4th from R) of the Department of Agrarian Reform award a rice drum seeder to an Agrarian Reform Communities (ARCs) representative.  The rice drum seeder is a manually-operated metal machine that seeds pre-germinated rice seeds in straight rows, making fertilizer application and weeding easier for the farmers. Distributed during the 1st National Hybrid Rice Congress on April 4 at PhilRice-CES, the awarding of rice drum seeders is one of the government’s services given to ARCs, which also include farm-to-market roads, irrigation, and post-harvest facilities.
