• Korean rice seed technology now in Iloilo


    ILOILO CITY: Farmers are expected to increase their rice production through the rice seed multiplication technology of the Korean Project on International Agriculture (Kopia), in collaboration with the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) and the Western Visayas Integrated Agricultural Research Center of the Department of Agriculture. Assistant Regional Director Joyce Wendam said the technology focuses on high production of PSB RC 14 and NSIC RC 214 rice varieties in rain-fed and irrigated lowland areas. Wendam said the Kopia-enhanced seeds yield more than seven metric tons of palay per hectare. Kopia also donated a soil analyzer and transplanter in the municipality of Dingle as a pilot area for seed multiplication.
