Sustaining top 2 ranking in rice output pushed

THE Department of Agriculture (DA) in Western Visayas is working on sustaining the region’s ranking as second top rice producer in the country, said Regional Director Remelyn Recoter.

Recoter, who was in Bacolod City Monday, March 12, noted that Western Visayas plays between second and third in terms of production and harvested area next to Central Luzon and Cagayan Valley.

She said that despite being included in the top five rice producing regions, Western Visayas still needs to increase its yield performance, which is currently at rank 12 or 13.
