Iloilo farmers welcome loan aid as ‘palay’ prices plunge

first_img“Our mayor is planning to buy theirproduct similar to the buying price of NFA,” he said. If farmers will rely ontraders, then the latter will just freely decide on the buying price of palay, he added. Under the SURE Aid, rice farmers who aretilling a hectare of rice land or less can avail of the one-time, zero interestloan program of P15,000, payable up to eight years. Lambunao Municipal Agriculturist RichardCatedral said Wednesday that monthly, the town’s agricultural technicians meetwith farmers’ cooperative and federation, and one of the concerns always raisedis the low buying price of palay andthe high cost of farm input. He said that engaging in farmingnowadays is very expensive. He lamented that when he sells his produce, thetraders only priced his palay betweenP10 to 14 per kilo. If the loan program goes full swing,more or less 4,000 of the 6,000 rice farmers in Lambunao are eligible to avail. He said that within the week, the localgovernment unit will start buying the palayproduce of rice farmers in Lambunao. He said the Sangguniang Bayan has approveda P1.6-million budget intended for the program. In the past weeks, the farm gate priceof freshly harvested palay was at P8per kilo and between PHOTO BY IAN PAUL CORDERO/PN P9 to 10 per kilo when brought totraders in the poblacion. This week,the buying price for freshly harvested palay was at P13 a kilo. Nancy Lastimoso, 64, a farmer fromBarangay Maite Grande, Lambunao said that they welcome any intervention fromthe government. She has been into farming for more than 40 years and shelamented the low buying price of palay. ILOILO – The government’s Expanded Survival and Recovery AssistanceProgram for Rice Farmers (SURE Aid) can be of big help to farmers who are nowreeling from the impact of the Rice Tariffication Law, a local governmentagriculturist here said.center_img Currently, her palay is already on itsvegetative stage but already she has spent more than P10,000 starting from landpreparation and other farm inputs. From land preparation and farm implements,he spends around P20,000. Good for him because he has his hand tractor so he nolonger has to pay for labor. “We will have an orientation about theloan program this Friday,” he confirmed. She has less than a hectare of riceland, which during the favorable condition, produces around 30 to 35 sacks forevery cropping. However, if the weather condition is not good, her producecould not even reach 15 sacks in one cropping. The more than two-hectare rice land thathe tills can produce up to 150 sacks of palay during good weather but could noteven reach 30 sacks when the weather is unfavorable. David Evasco, 62, of BarangayTranghawan, Lambunao, expressed his difficulty being a farmer for more than 40years. While the buying price of palay is low,yet the price of rice is still around P2,000 per bag or equivalent to 50 kilos. The rice farmer said that if the buyingprice of palay will increase, then itis going to be a welcome development. Around 12,000 hectares of the land areaof the municipality are considered agricultural area. Some 50 percent of theagricultural lands are utilized for rice farming. (With areport from PNA/PN)last_img read more

Moyes eager for Anfield triumph

first_img A win for Everton will certainly mean Moyes’ men, currently sixth in the table, will finish this season above seventh-placed Liverpool, with the current gap between them standing at five points after 35 matches played. It would be the second campaign in succession that the Toffees have secured a higher final position than the Reds, but Moyes’ focus is more on this term’s bigger picture – the hunt for a European berth. “You want to finish above every team – I wanted to finish above Manchester United and Manchester City this season,” Moyes said. “Do I want to finish above Liverpool? Of course I do. But it can’t be our sole objective, and I would be surprised if it was Liverpool’s to finish above us. “In terms of our target at the moment, we are looking to see if we can catch Tottenham or one of the other teams above us.” Everton are three points behind fifth-placed Spurs, having played one game more. Press Association Everton boss David Moyes has stressed his desire to beat Liverpool in Sunday’s Merseyside derby at Anfield is not driven by any sense of personal mission.center_img Moyes has been in charge of the Toffees for 11 years, but is still to oversee an away victory against the Reds. The Scot has emphasised that if Everton pull off their first Anfield victory since 1999 this weekend, his thoughts will be on its significance for the club as a whole rather than for his own CV. Asked what it would mean to him personally if his side won this weekend’s Barclays Premier League clash, Moyes said: “Nothing personally. For Everton – for the team and the supporters – it will mean an awful lot, but personally, it is not an important thing really. I’m looking forward to trying to get a result for the supporters.” last_img read more

Holtz, a source close to Thomas told The Daily Orange on Saturday.The source also said the SU medical staff had not yet given Thomas a diagnosis of any potential injuries.Thomas and Holtz made helmet-to-helmet contact on a passing play late in the second half of SU’s 14-13 win over the Panthers, and Thomas was left motionless on the field for several minutes. The collision knocked Thomas’ helmet off and spun him around almost 360 degrees.Immediately, Thomas’ teammates as well as several Pittsburgh players went down on one knee, and some bowed their heads in prayer. The entire sideline behind the Syracuse bench rose instantly as Thomas and Holtz made contact, and spectators remained standing until Thomas was helped up.He was able to walk off the field under his own power.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter the game, SU head coach Doug Marrone said he had no update on Thomas’ status because he had not yet spoken with the trainers.“I just made sure it wasn’t anything drastic — something really bad,” Marrone said.
