Rice Replanting

Rice Replanting: Heavy rains caused by “hanging habagat” the past weeks resulted to the clustering of direct seeded rice seeds in the farms. This woman-farmer, at right picture, from Ngingi-an, Bingawan, Iloilo is replanting rice seedlings to vacant areas in her fields to ensure proper distance and maximum tillering of rice plants. Replanting will also warrant right fertilizer intake per plant thus increasing yield per hectare. (James Earl E. Ogatis photo)/MP
