NCotabato rice farmers fear decline in harvest due to pests
MLANG, North Cotabato – Several farmers in this town fear a huge decline in their rice harvest after plant pests attacked their farms, the town's agriculture office reported Saturday.
Municipal agriculturist Noemi Nicholas told local reporters that at least 50 farmers complained of severe damage to their rice fields due to stem borer infestation.
Stem borer is a destructive pest that feasts on the roots of newly planted palay.
Nicolas said at least 200 hectares of rice affected by the infestation have no more chance of recovery.
In a separate interview, former Barangay Inas chairman Paeng Porras said he suspects some farmers whose rice suffered borer infestation did not follow the correct farming calendar.Add a comment
