The annual Farmers’ Field Day, also known as Lakbay Palay, was held today at the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) Bicol, Brgy. Batang, Ligao City.

Aside from showcasing the Learning Farm, the Palamayamanan model farm, and private sector technologies in the Palayabangan 10-5 challenge, and farm machineries, the Rice Business Innovation Systems (RiceBIS) Program was also launched to address farmers’ needs from the production to the processing to the marketing phase in a resilient and sustainable manner.
