Increasing Local Rice Production: Zambales Farmers Rally Behind NFA’s Price Hike.
CITY OF SAN FERNANDO, Pampanga – Zambales farmers are supporting the National Food Authority’s (NFA) decision to raise the buying prices for palay (unmilled rice). The NFA Council announced new prices: PHP23 for dry palay, increased from PHP19, and PHP19 for wet palay, up from PHP16. Francisco Pallarag, a rice farmer from Barangay Palanginan, Iba, appreciated the price change. He noted that farmers often faced low prices, especially during harvest times when there was a lack of drying facilities. With the NFA’s updated prices, which compete with private traders, farmers like him can now get better returns for their crops. Pallarag thanked President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr. and the NFA. He committed to selling his next harvest to the agency, showing his support for the program.
Davao Region Sees Rise in September Inflation.
DAVAO CITY – The Philippine Statistics Authority in Region 11 (PSA-11) reported on Tuesday that Davao Region experienced an inflation rate of 5.4 percent in September, marking an increase from August’s 3.9 percent. However, this remains below the 9.6 percent recorded in September 2022. A primary factor behind the inflation uptick was the faster growth in food and non-alcoholic beverage prices, which rose to 8 percent from 6 percent the previous month, according to PSA-11. The report also highlighted quicker price increases in the sectors of housing, water, electricity, gas, and other fuels, which saw rates of -1.1 percent in September, an improvement from -2.4 percent in August. Similarly, restaurants and accommodation services jumped to 9.5 percent from 6.8 percent.
