Farming Advisories
LA NIÑA ADVISORY
Prolonged rainfall during La Niña, can proliferate destructive grain-sucking rice-bugs (liptocorisa) which can be abundant and can attack any time, be vigilant and always inspect your rice fields and ask local agriculturist for advice if there are any. Continuous wet weather condition brought by La Niña, promotes fungal development and can cause damage to stored farm products, reduce the quality, viability and market price of the grains. Thus, it is advised to keep barns and crop storage rooms to be in good, dry, well ventilated condition. During La Niña, choose flood resistant rice varieties which are suitable in your farm or ask the advice and expertise of your local agriculturist.

IN AREAS AFFECTED BY TROPICAL DEPRESSION “PEPITO” AND NORTHEASTERLY SURFACE WINDFLOW
Be alert and have extra care to those living in low lying areas due to possible flash flooding and living near mountainous or sloping areas due to possible landslides; inspect farm houses and barns (make repairs if necessary), clean creeks, canals and ditches; store harvested crops in elevated and covered places. Water impounding is advisable during heavy rains for future use. Construction of fishponds is favorable during the rainy days.

IN AREAS WITH MODERATE AND SCATTERED RAINS AND THUNDERSTORMS
Be alert and extra careful to those living in low lying areas and near mountain slopes due to possible flooding and landslides; inspect farm houses, barns and light-built structures and make repairs; harvesting of matured crops and store them in elevated and covered places; use covered vans when transporting goods to the market.

FOR WET (IRRIGATED) AND MOIST AREAS
Land and seedbed preparation; planting and transplanting; removal of weeds and cultivation, harvesting of matured crops, use covered vans in delivery of g
oods in the market; planting of fruit trees to replace the old ones.
FOR DRY (RAINFED) AREAS WITH LIGHT TO MODERATE WINDS
Watering crops during early morning and evening periods will help alleviate stress on crops. Animal housing must be well ventilated; cogon and nipa as roof materials are advisable. Sun drying of newly harvested rice and corn; watering activities or irrigation using pump
Fishing Advisories

The seaboards of northern Luzon (Batanes, Cagayan including Babuyan Islands, Ilocos Norte, and Ilocos Sur) will have rough to very rough sea conditions. Fishing boats and other small seacraft are advised not to venture out into the sea while larger sea vessels are alerted against big waves. Meanwhile, the coastal waters over rest of northern Luzon, Central Luzon and the eastern sections of Southern Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao will be moderate to rough. Elsewhere, will have slight to moderate seas. Be reminded to be very careful in going out fishing specially those using small sea craft. Always bring emergency kit. Be updated for the latest weather update and farm advisories.

DEKAD NO. 29      11 – 20 OCTOBER 2020

Philippine Agri-Weather Forecast
The weather systems that will likely affect the whole country are the southwest monsoon (SW), low pressure area (LPA), tropical cyclone and localized thunderstorms.

During the start of the forecast period, the whole country will gradually experience cloudy skies with rainshowers and thunderstorms. After this, gradual improvement of weather condition will be felt over Metro Manila, Ilocos Region, Cagayan Valley and Central Luzon during the mid of the first half of the dekad while the rest of the archipelago will continue to experience cloudy skies with rainshowers and thunderstorms. However, as the weather disturbance at the east of Eastern Visayas develop into a tropical cyclone, the areas in Eastern Visayas, CALABARZON, Metro Manila, the provinces of Mindoro, Marinduque and Romblon, and the western section of Central Luzon will experience bad weather during the latter part of the first half of the dekad. Northern Mindanao, CARAGA, Zamboanga Peninsula and the rest of Luzon and Visayas will be cloudy with rainshowers and thunderstorms while the rest of Mindanao will have good weather except for possible isolated rainshowers. Gradual improvement of weather condition will be experienced over the affected areas during the mid of the second half of the dekad. Moreover, during the latter part of the forecast period, CARAGA, Davao Region, Eastern Visayas, Bicol Region and CALABARZON will experience cloudy skies with rainshowers and thunderstorms due to the possible formation of LPA. The rest of the country will have good weather except for possible isolated rainshowers.

During the early days of the forecast period, winds coming from the northeast to east will prevail over Northern Luzon while Visayas and the rest of Luzon will have winds from the northeast to northwest. Mindanao will experience winds from the southwest to west. As the tropical cyclone crosses the landmass, Southern Luzon and Eastern Visayas are expected to experience gusty winds while the rest of Luzon will have winds from the northeast to north. The remaining areas of the archipelago will have winds from the west to southeast. During the early days of the second half of the dekad, winds coming from the northeast to east will continue to prevail over Northern Luzon while winds from the northeast to southeast will blow over the rest of Luzon. This condition will prevail up to the end of the forecast period. The eastern sections of Visayas and Mindanao will have winds from the northeast to north while the rest of the archipelago will experience winds from the southwest to southeast. However, as the LPA form over the eastern part of Mindanao, winds from the northeast to north will dominate over these areas.

During the early days of the dekad, the coastal waters over Luzon and the eastern section of Visayas will be moderate to rough while the rest of the archipelago will have slight to moderate seas. However, as the tropical cyclone crosses the landmass, it is expected to bring rough to very rough movement of seas over Southern Luzon. After this, the coastal waters over the eastern section of the country will gradually become slight to moderate while the northern and western sections of Luzon will have moderate to rough seas up to the end of the forecast period.

Weak to moderate La Niña is likely to persist across the tropical Pacific until the first quarter of 2021.
The weather systems that will likely affect the whole country are the southwest monsoon (SW), low pressure area (LPA), tropical cyclone and localized thunderstorms.

During the start of the forecast period, the whole country will gradually experience cloudy skies with rainshowers and thunderstorms. After this, gradual improvement of weather condition will be felt over Metro Manila, Ilocos Region, Cagayan Valley and Central Luzon during the mid of the first half of the dekad while the rest of the archipelago will continue to experience cloudy skies with rainshowers and thunderstorms.

Gradual improvement of weather condition will be experienced over the affected areas during the mid of the second half of the dekad. Moreover, during the latter part of the forecast period, CARAGA, Davao Region, Eastern Visayas, Bicol Region and CALABARZON will experience cloudy skies with rainshowers and thunderstorms due to the possible formation of LPA. The rest of the country will have good weather except for possible isolated rainshowers.

During the early days of the forecast period, winds coming from the northeast to east will prevail over Northern Luzon while Visayas and the rest of Luzon will have winds from the northeast to northwest. Mindanao will experience winds from the southwest to west. As the tropical cyclone crosses the landmass, Southern Luzon and Eastern Visayas are expected to experience gusty winds while the rest of Luzon will have winds from the northeast to north. The remaining areas of the archipelago will have winds from the west to southeast. During the early days of the second half of the dekad, winds coming from the northeast to east will continue to prevail over Northern Luzon while winds from the northeast to southeast will blow over the rest of Luzon. This condition will prevail up to the end of the forecast period. The eastern sections of Visayas and Mindanao will have winds from the northeast to north while the rest of the archipelago will experience winds from the southwest to southeast. However, as the LPA form over the eastern part of Mindanao, winds from the northeast to north will dominate over these areas.

During the early days of the dekad, the coastal waters over Luzon and the eastern section of Visayas will be moderate to rough while the rest of the archipelago will have slight to moderate seas. However, as the tropical cyclone crosses the landmass, it is expected to bring rough to very rough movement of seas over Southern Luzon. After this, the coastal waters over the eastern section of the country will gradually become slight to moderate while the northern and western sections of Luzon will have moderate to rough seas up to the end of the forecast period.

Weak to moderate La Niña is likely to persist across the tropical Pacific until the first quarter of 2021.
Farm Advisories

(Please observe the Memorandum Order on Stringent Social Distancing Measures and Further Guidelines for the Management of Corona Virus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) Situation)


Farmers are reminded that La Niña event can result to continuous wet weather condition that may promote fungal development and produce damage to stored farm products. It can also reduce the quality, viability and market price of the grains. Thus, it is advised to keep barns and crop/grain storage rooms in good, dry and well-ventilated conditions.

The purpose of crop/grain storage facility is to provide safe storage condition for the grain in order to prevent grain loss caused by adverse weather, moisture, rodents, birds, insects and micro-organisms like fungi. In general, it is recommended that rice (for food purposes) should be stored in paddy form rather than milled rice as the husk provides some protection against insects and helps prevent quality deterioration.

Also, in the advent of La Niña, farmers should choose flood resistant rice varieties or ask for advice and expertise of the local agriculturist.

Prolonged rain causes soil erosion and landslide which may require the farmers to do cover cropping, land terracing and waterway declogging activities.
