Farming Advisories
IN AREAS AFFECTED BY LA NIÑA Liptocorisa (destructive grain-sucking rice-bugs) can be abundant and can attack any time during prolonged rainfall specially during La Niña, be vigilant and always inspect your rice fields and/or ask precautionary measures to your local agriculturist. In the event of the ongoing La Niña, one may choose flood resistant rice varieties which are suitable in your farm or ask the advice of the agricultural experts. Livestock/domesticated animals are susceptible to contract diseases during the rainy periods, also, continuing rains can form stagnating water/ponds which can serve as a good mosquito breeding ground, constant cleaning of the surroundings may stop the disease to proliferate. During La Niña, big trees near houses may have weak/dead branches that can fall and cause damage to houses and animal shelters and can hurt inhabitants during strong winds and heavy rains, as precautionary measure, cutting of excess leaves and branches of big trees is advisable. Also, pruning leaves of banana that will likely be broken can be saved from total destruction.
N AREAS AFFECTED BY LPA, NORTHEAST MONSOON AND MODERATE TO HEAVY RAINS Be alert and extra careful to those living in low lying areas and near mountain slopes due to possible flooding and landslides; During northeast monsoon with moderate to heavy rains, farmers are advised/ reminded to do cover cropping, land terracing and waterway de-clogging activities. This is to prevent soil erosion and provide humus, regulate water, reduce weed, increase biodiversity and improve farming as a whole. Continuous wet weather 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 and wellventilated condition. Clean creeks, canals and ditches; store harvested crops in elevated, well ventilated and covered places. Water impounding is advisable during heavy rains for future use.
OR WET (IRRIGATED) AND MOIST AREAS Livestock/domesticated animals are susceptible to contact diseases during the rainy period specially if its La Nina, always keep animal shelters and its surroundings clean, dry and well ventilated. A clean environment can minimize the possibility of covid-19 infection. Keep the goats/ruminants shut in the barn, well protected from draft and provided with clean solid floor. Land and seedbed preparation; planting and transplanting; removal of weeds and cultivation, harvesting of matured crops, use covered vans in delivery of goods 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. Sun drying of newly harvested rice and corn; watering activities or irrigation using pump in dry and rainfed areas. Spraying insecticides or fertilizer application in farm areas with light winds when needed.
Fishing Advisories

Gale warning is raised over the northern and eastern seaboards of Luzon (Batanes, Cagayan including Babuyan Islands, Isabela, the Northern coast of Ilocos Norte, Aurora, Quezon including Polillo Island, Camarines Norte, northern coast of Camarines Sur, eastern coast of Sorsogon and Catanduanes), the western seaboards of northern and central Luzon (Ilocos Sur, La Union, Pangasinan, and the western coast of Ilocos Norte). Fishing boats and other small seacraft are advised not to venture out into the sea while larger sea vessels are alerted against big waves. Moderate to rough seas are expected over the rest of Luzon and Visayas, eastern section of Mindanao while the rest of Mindanao 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.

Newly opened urban agri learning center to address DA’s food sufficiency drive

Intensifying the food production initiatives of the Department of Agriculture (DA) through the promotion of urban farming, a newly opened “Urban Agri Hydro Hub Learning Center” was inaugurated on October 13, 2021 at The Pop Up Katipunan in Quezon City.

“This launching serves as our first step in reaching our goal. Today, we established our country’s first urban farming hydroponic research and training facility to overcome food shortages and heal hunger in the Philippines,” Agriculture Secretary William Dar said.

The project is a collaboration of DA, the Philippine Association of Agriculturists, Inc. (PAA), University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman Institute of Biology, and The Freshest.

“I have always believed in the power of urban farming much more amid Covid-19 pandemic,” Secretary Dar said. He added that urban farming could cover 15 to 20 percent of urban areas, where every space available such as vacant lots and rooftops can be utilized for food production.

The Learning Center is composed of two facilities: 1) the hydrofarm, which can grow 576 heads of lettuce or about 18 kilograms per lifecycle, and 2) the Hydro Hub lecture hall.

Lectures on hydroponics, vegetarian/vegan culinary demonstrations, and pop-ups will be regularly conducted at the Center.

In cooperation with the Department of Education, the Learning Center’s first training program was attended by 39 elementary students from Quezon City, Manila, Caloocan, Pasig, and Marikina. The next training aims to involve high school students and reach out to more cities.

“Metro Manila people have to now start doing their own share in providing their own food,” the agri chief said.
The new facility will also contribute to attaining food security and will make high-value crops available in urban areas.

For additional knowledge to attain potential crop production, farmers are encouraged to join government projects. These will enable them to learn and experience science-based crops and cropping system technologies and gain from such projects’ activities as sample advisories like planting dates, early warning for pest and disease infestation, water management strategies for specific areas, and daily weather condition notifications are also available (e.g., ACIAR, SARAI projects, etc.).
