Farmers Given Tips to Increase Profit PDF Print E-mail
ROXAS CITY, Capiz (April 17) – A workshop on Grains Classification was conducted by the National Food Authority (NFA) – Capiz last April 11 at the Capiz State University (CapSU) campus here to educate farmers on how they could profit more from their produce by keenly observing the Philippine Grains Standardization Program (PGSP).

The PGSP implementation, which is solely entrusted to NFA since 1972, aims to standardize primary quality of rice both valid for export and domestic consumption.

Resource persons included NFA – Capiz Quality Assurance Section head Aurelio V. Villasis and Provincial Industry Services Officer Jose T. Davila, Jr. who talked on how palay grains are being analyzed and classified before about 250 farmer – participants.

This was to address previous conflicts on grains classification between farmers and quality assurance officers most especially on “no rejection” issue.

The No rejection would hold for as long as within NFA specification standards,” clarified NFA – Capiz Officer – In – Charge Erna Y. Abello.

She noted that the Agency accepts grains whose maximum moisture content is 30 percent, minimum purity is 90 percent and maximum discolored and damaged kernel is 13 percent.

NFA and the Provincial Farmers Action Council (PFAC) – Capiz Chapter headed by Dr. Aladino L. Leccio deemed that the conduct of the workshop timely for the celebration of this year 2013 of National Year of Rice by the agriculture sector.

The activity was also graced by NFA – 6 director Engr. Javier P. Lozada. (JCM/AAL/PIA 6 Capiz/NFA)
