Generoso Lumbres, Crop Specialist of MMDC said the said demo farm was planted with seven varieties of rice such as, jasmine local, jasmine MMDC, Brunei, Philrice 300 x 298, IRI David, NSIC Rc 298 and NSIC Rc 304.

He said that from the harvested varieties, he would choose the kind of crop he would recommend to the farmers to increase their crop yield.

Lumbres said it is projected that for one-hectare techno demo organic rice production, the farmers would harvest 7,000 kilos of rice.

He added that the organic rice commands higher price per kilo compared to commercial rice, thus, encouraging farmer-beneficiaries to increase farm productivity.

Members of the Brgy. Bunga Tanza Farmers Association thanked the DAR for its relentless support to them.
