DA aims to replicate rice record
By Roderick T. Dela Cruz , Researcher
ENTHUSED by a new world record in rice harvest in Mindoro, the Department of Agriculture said it would try to replicate the feat in other areas of the country.

On October 1, Ernesto P. Pablo Sr. harvested an average of 292 cavans of palay (unmilled rice) per hectare in his three-hectare farm in Rizal, Occidental Mindoro.

Since each cavan is equal to 50 kilos, Pablo’s haul of Doña Maria hybrid rice variety reached 14.6 metric tons (MT), breaking the old record of 12 MT (240 cavans) set by the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) in Nueva Ecija province.

Moreover, the regional office of the Department of Agriculture for Southern Tagalog said that one of Pablo’s three hectares yielded 298 cavans or 14.9 MT, or nearly four times the national average of 67 cavans (3.3 MT) per hectare.
