Support Filipino Farmers, on the other hand, is a campaign that wishes to support our local farmers by encouraging the consumers to prioritize buying locally produced goods especially rice. Initial efforts in creating awareness for this campaign will be seen in local supermarkets, wet markets and television appearances.
SL Agritech Corporation has been continuously promoting the use and benefits of hybrid rice seeds in the country. Hybrid rice technology is said to be the most viable option in increasing the rice productivity without the additional land area. This is evident in the significant increment in the yield of our farmers using hybrid rice seeds. The recent records reveal that farmers can already harvest more than 300 cavans or 15 meter tons in one hectare using SLAC commercial hybrid rice seeds.
This event serves as part of the SL Agritech Corp.'s continuous efforts to encourage our beloved farmers to continue planting rice using hybrid rice technology amidst the challenges facing the rice industry.
