NFA Rice Up by P2 effective December 7 PDF Print E-mail

The National Food Authority (NFA) Council, the governing body of the food security agency, today approved to increase the wholesale price of NFA rice from Php23.50 to 25.00 per kilogram (kg) effective December 7, 2010. On the retail level, this will effectively increase the price from Php25.00/kg to Php27.00/kg.

 The move is among the measures government is undertaking to ensure the viability of the agency and continue fulfilling its mandate of supporting farmers to produce enough for self-sufficiency.

 NFA Administrator Angelito T. Banayo said. “We are looking at the long term viability of NFA. The minimal price increase will go a long way in ensuring continuous support for our farmers while stabilizing rice prices and supply availability.”

Agri growth dips by 2.6%, Jan-Sept 2010 PDF Print E-mail

 Despite the Department of Agriculture’s interventions to minimize the effects of El Nino from January to September 2010, the country’s agriculture sector slowed down by 2.62 percent (%), even as the poultry, livestock and fisheries subsectors posted positive growth rates.

 The prolonged dry spell exacted a heavy toll on the crops subsector, as it declined by 7.2%. The late onset of the rainy season delayed planting of palay (unmilled rice) and corn to July and August. Hence, the bulk of palay and corn harvests will be accounted in the 4th quarter.

SRA Explains SRP of Sugar PDF Print E-mail

          The National Price Coordinating Council (NPCC) chaired by DTI decided that the suggested reference price (SRP) of refined sugar will be retained at P52.00 per kilo.  

          Prior to the decision of the NPCC,  the Sugar Regulatory Administration (SRA) recommended the SRP of P56.00 per kilo of refined sugar when retailers in public markets and grocery owners complained that they could no longer sell refined sugar at the SRP level of P 52.00 per kilo since the wholesale price has gone up and it is no longer profitable for them to sell sugar at the current SRP level.   They were also scared of being filed with an administrative case by the Department of Agriculture (DA) and Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) if they will sell refined sugar beyond the SRP.  

          SRA’s recommended SRP was based on the last bidded price of sugar in the millsite and the prevailing wholesale prices for the last 3 months, that is, from June to August.
