March 11 - 17, 2017

MAASIN CITY - The National Food Authority (NFA) recently announced that they will buy unhusked rice (palay) from Southern Leyteño farmers at P17 pesos, especially now that harvest season is approaching.

The NFA revealed to the press that it will also give local farmers a P0.50- centavo to 1-peso-per-kilo incentive to compensate the farmers’ efforts to improve the quality of their produce and pay for their expenses in bringing Govt. to buy “palay” from farmers these to the NFA warehouses.

Provincial Manager Lorna Ordiz disclosed that the NFA has recently opened buying stations in of brgy. Ma. Asuncion, Saint Bernard; Poblacion village, Hinunangan; and barangay Canturing, Maasin City.

The NFA buys unmilled rice from farmers at P17 per kilo — which is way above the break-even price of P10.50 — to keep the abusive private sector at bay.(By MARK L. RIMAS)
