Agri chief to farmers: Harvest rice crop, please
AGRICULTURE Secretary Arthur Yap has appealed to the "sense of patriotism and selfless service" of the rice traders and farmers in Central Luzon and Southern Tagalog in the latter's threat not to harvest their rice crop unless traders agree to increase the farm gate price of palay. Yap has asked Gregorio Tan, the administrator of the National Food Authority, to arrange a dialogue between the traders and the farmers and help them to reach a middle ground that would allow the farmers to earn a decent profit and traders to keep the market price of rice within the reach of ordinary Filipinos.
The farmers are asking the traders to raise the farm gate price of palay (unmilled rice) from P7 to P10.50 a kilo.
Otherwise, the farmers, grouped under the Alyansa ng Magbubukid sa Gitnang Luzon and the Lumaban-Timog Katagalugan, threaten to stop harvesting the rice crop starting on Monday, in the middle of the harvest season in what is known as the country's rice belt.
