BAGUIO CITY, June 21 (PIA) - - The Department of Agriculture enjoins every Filipino to help in ensuring food security for the country as the COVID-19 pandemic has affected food production.

DA Secretary William Dar, in a press conference here Friday, bared that in the first quarter of the year the agriculture sector contracted by 0.4 percent and a much lower growth  is expected  this second quarter.

Dar informed that during the first month of implementation of the Enhanced Community Quarantine, around 15 percent of farmers and fisherfolks were not able to do food production activities while 35 percent failed to market their produce.

The COVID pandemic has distorted the agriculture sector’s production and trading system so the country needs to work continuously and even increase food production output. As the COVID pandemic continues, the basic concern still is to ensure that there must be ample supply of food for the table as people need to eat three square meals a day, he said.

“FAITH or Food Always In The Home. Ito ung pamamaraan ngayon under pandemic period na mag-survive tayo. On top of the efforts of the farmers and fishers to do farming and fishing or to do higher level of production, sama-sama po tayong lahat,” he explained.

“Dito po sa COVID-19 pandemic war, by way of really increasing our food sufficiency level, domestic food production is our main goal now. We would like to believe that it is possible that this country can produce much of its food requirements. Tara Na, plant, plant, plant. Let’s Go!” Dar stressed.

“Plant, Plant, Plant” is the other tagline for DA’s ALPAS (Ahon Lahat Pagkaing Sapat) Kontra COVID Program.  As food security strategies are already being pushed under the program, every Filipino should help in ensuring food security even by just producing vegetables and fruits at home.

Promotion of Urban gardening or backyard farming is among the strategies under ALPAS Kontra COVID wherein DA is investing on seeds/seedlings and other gardening needs which distribute to the people in partnership with the local government units and local agricultural offices.

Secretary Dar, who is also the Cabinet Official for Regional Development and Security for Cordillera, earlier presided a joint meeting of the Regional Task Force to End Local Armed Communist Conflict (RTF – ELCAC) with the Regional Peace and Order Council chaired by Baguio City mayor Benjamin Magalong on June 19 here. 

Through the meeting, Dar looked into the accomplishments of the RTF – ELCAC in the campaign against local communist/extremists and in bringing of socio – economic programs, projects and advocacies to affected barangays, and the region’s situation against the war on COVID – 19 as well as to see on how the national government and the agriculture department can further help in regional development.

Why are Filipinos known for their lack of reading comprehension?

Because according to most of them: "Well-mannered is better than well-educated" That's why most of the Filipinos never progress. It is because of the trash mindset.

How To Make A Country Worship You

Hayaan mo lang na lumala ng lumala ang ekonomiya. Hayaan mo magutom ang mga tao. Hayaan mo silang magpatayan. Hanggang sa maupos na ng tuluyan ang pag asa nila na magkakaroon pa ng pagbabago. Hayaan mo silang abala sa mga libangan nila at may mahabang oras ka na manlinlang at malilinlang mo talaga sila. Gumawa ka ng maraming misdirections para akala nila informed sila. Sa kawalan nila ng pag-asa, hagisan mo ng tira tira. Hagisan mo ng latak ng sarili nilang pera. Hagisan mo ng katiting na awa. Hindi mo kailangan ayusin ang mga ng problema ng bansa. Kailangan mo lang palabasin na may ginagawa ka kahit wala.

Isang Pasasalamat

Sabi nila: “There’s always something to be thankful for.” Kaya ako din may sasabihin! 🀣✌️ Isang pasasalamat! πŸ’— Sa lahat ng nagmamahal sa akin, maraming salamat po. Sa mga pagtulong sa akin, kahit hindi ko sinasabi, pero ginagawa pa rin, Thank you. Hindi ko man nasasabi personally pero taos puso ang pasasalamat ko sa inyo. Alam kong alam niyo na kung sino kayo. Isa na lang mahihiling ko talaga, ang mapanatili ang genuine and lasting friendship na nabuo natin. πŸ’— Kung may nasaktan o na-offend ako dahil sa mga paniniwala o pangbubully ko. Humihingi ako ng paumanhin. Kung isa ka sa ma-ooffend ko pa lang. Humihingi na ako agad ng paumanhin. Dahil din sa inyo, may natutunan at matututunan ako. Kung isa ka sa mga nagsasabing suplado ako, pasensiya na. Nagkakamali po kayo. =) Sa mga napasaya ko kahit paano, maraming salamat. Kayo ang magiging inspirasyon ko na ipagpatuloy ang paglaban ng taas noo at ngiting tagos hanggang puso sa darating pang mga taon. Sa mga nakakamiss sa akin,
