A long-grain hybrid rice, US-88 from SeedWorks Philippines, will take center stage at the 2019 Hari Sa Ani Event that will be held on September 12, 2019 at the Crystal Waves Events Center in Talavera, Nueva Ecija. This was announced by Carlos Saplala, SeedWorks president and CEO.
During the occasion, Saplala will launch a competition among farmers who will plant US-88 hybrid rice in their own farms. The farmer who will obtain the highest yield per unit area will be declared the champion and will receive valuable prizes.
At the same event, Saplala will launch a convenient packaging, a 3-kilo pack, of US-88 that will make it easy for famers with small farms to buy the seeds they will need.
Hundreds of farmers, largely from Luzon, will be participating in the Hari Sa Ani event.
