Two farmers from Ilog sold 215 bags of palay to the National Food Authority warehouse in Brgy. Dancalan in the town, and warehouse supervisor Maverick Misajon said more farmers have signified their intention to also sell their produce to the NFA.
But Misajon said that not all palays are being purchased by the agency, adding that only clean and dry ones will be procured.
He said classifier John Martin Jaropillo ensured that the palay sold are qualified, and in good state.
Misajon added that farmers interested in selling their palay may contact him through 09156706090.
This is already the second palay acquisition within the week after farmers of the San Enrique Multi-Purpose Cooperative sold 7,790 kilos of clean and dry palay to the NFA in Bacolod City Tuesday.
