DA declares ‘war’ vs pests in Nueva Ecija
The Department of Agriculture (DA) in Central Luzon has declared a “war” against pests in Nueva Ecija.
Dubbed as “Oplan Iwas Peste,” it was launched at the Municipal Agricultural Officers’ Meeting held in Sta. Rosa Thursday, June 28, the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) said.
The campaign aims to raise farmers’ awareness on management practices that can prevent insect pest and disease infestation on rice farms in the province, it said.
Aside from the DA-Regional Field Office 3 (RFO-3), the program was launched in cooperation with the Regional Crop Protection Center 3, Office of the Provincial Agriculturist, and PhilRice.
