Farm Advisory

ENSO ALERT SYSTEM STATUS
La Niña re-strengthened and is forecasted to continue until DJF 2022 – 2023 (~60%) with ENSO neutral condition thereafter.

IN AREAS AFFECTED BY LA NIÑA
Choose flood resistant rice varieties which are suitable in your farm or ask the advice and expertise of your local agriculturist. Run-off water can be stored in ponds for future use. Water impounding is favorable during the La Niña days.

IN AREAS AFFECTED BY TS "KARDING", LPA, SOUTHWEST MONSOON AND THUNDERSTORMS 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 moderate to heavy rains, farmers are 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
