Solons divided over budget cuts, set pow-wow posted August 11, 2018 at 01:30 am by Maricel Cruz

Lawmakers on Friday stressed the need to put up safety nets for rice farmers if the government wants to allow the private sector to import rice as a way of reducing inflation, and warned that budget cuts could hurt the country‘s electrification program and imperil the free college tuition law. House Majority Leader and Camarines Sur Rep. Rolando Andaya Jr. said Friday that help for farmers could come by way of projects led by the Department of Agriculture, such as irrigation systems.He said this would entail allocating more funds to the Agriculture department in the 2019 national budget, after its budget was cut from P61 billion in 2018 to P55.9 billion. ―There are safety nets. There is one school of thought that the projects to help farmers be advanced instead of waiting for them to be funded by income from the duties on rice to be imported,‖ Andaya said. ―There is merit in that proposal…. You do not set up the safety net when the person it is supposed to catch is already falling.‖ But Andaya said the DA should also consider its absorptive capacity in implementing the projects to help the farmers. Andaya said the government should not wait for earnings from rice importers, who must pay a 35- percent tariff under a new bill that would enable private companies to import the grain. Andaya said the once passed into law, quantitative restrictions on rice imports would be lifted and permit the influx of cheap rice from abroad, hurting local farmers. Andaya noted that tariffs from rice imports in Southeast Asian countries such as Thailand and Vietnam were used to fund mass irrigation, warehouse, and rice research. Meanwhile, Davao City Rep. Karlo Nograles warned that the P621.68-million reduction in the budget of the Department of Energy would hurt its electrification program. During the budget hearing on the DoE‘s proposed P2.04-billion budget for 2019, Nograles, chairman of the House committee on appropriations, said he is opposed to reducing the budget of the key agencies of government. These budget reductions will hurt the delivery of services by concerned agencies such as the DoE, Nograles said The DoE proposed a P621.68 million for 2019 or 23 percent lower than its P2.65-billion allocation for this year.

―It burdens me to see something like the NEA [National Electrification Administration] and the DoE getting very huge cuts, especially for us coming from the provinces,‖ Nograles said. If government agencies are not given the budget they need, economic development in the countryside will be unattainable, Nograles said. Nograles added that President Rodrigo Duterte wants complete electrification of the sitios in Mindanao before his term ends in 2022. ―Isn‘t it embarrassing that Mindanao is not getting the support it needs considering that the President is from the island,‖ Nograles said. Lawmakers will meet with senators next week to find ways so that the so-called ―cash-based‖ budget system will not jeopardize the second-semester implementation of the free college tuition law. ―The House leadership will talk to the Senate leaders Monday next week to discuss the cashbased budget system,‖ Nograles said. Under the proposed cash-based 2019 P3.757-trillion national budget, all payouts are valid within the fiscal year and only three months the following year or until March 2020. Next year the national government will adopt the cash-budgeting system that calls for the payment of goods and services on the same year that they were acquired. Nograles said the House has sent emissaries to discuss the matter with the Senate and that he relayed the concern and sentiments of the House. During Thursday‘s budget deliberations on Commission on Higher Education, CHED officer-incharge, Commissioner Prospero de Vera III admitted that the Commission will have difficulty implementing the free tuition law because the second semester covers until May or June 2020 where the 2019 national appropriations will no longer be in effect under the cash-based budget. ―We will be severely hampered in implementing RA [Republic Act No.] 10931 because the first semester for some universities start in June,‖ De Vera said. Nograles echoed De Vera‘s concern on how the free tuition law would be hurt by the cash-based system. ―We are very concerned with cash-based budgeting in terms of implementation of the free higher education law which we [House] funded in 2018 with P40 billion and we‘re funding in 2019 with P50 billion,‖ said Nograles. ―Realistically [under] cash-based budgeting, you will only be able to spend from the P50 billion what is billed to you by the SUCs [state universities and colleges] for the first semester. What happens to the second semester and the other half of the P50 billion?‖ Nograles said. http://manilastandard.net/news/top-stories/272741/solons-divided-over-budget-cuts-set-pow-wow.html

―An accomplice who had a motorcycle was waiting for them. As they tried to jump on the bike, the gun released a bullet which hit the leg of one of the men. The two men abandoned the injured man at the scene as they fled on the motorbike,‖ Mr Isabirye said. Ms Sylvia Kitimbo, the woman whose bag was snatched said it contained Shs2 million and two smartphones. The injured man was taken to Jinja Hospital by good Samaritans who did not know that he was a suspected robber. After learning that the injured man was in hospital, irate rice mill workers and residents stormed the health facility in an attempt to kill him. They were, however, blocked by police officers. Jinja District Police Commander, Mr Vincent Irama, said they recovered a gun, a police uniform and some money at the crime scene. Mr Irama, however, refuted allegations that the injured man, who is being treated as a key suspect, is a police officer. http://www.monitor.co.ug/News/National/Robbers-kill-rice-mill-cashier-Jinja-policehospital/688334-4705106-b8were/index.html

STEEL SILOS OF 9.50L MT STORAGE TO BE BUILT IN HARYANA Friday, 10 August 2018 | PNS | Chandigarh | in Chandigarh Haryana Minister of State for Food, Civil Supplies and Consumer Affairs, Karan Dev Kamboj on Thursday said that steel silos of 9.50 lakh MT capacity would be built for the safe storage of foodgrains in the State. ―For this, tender process has been started. Approval has been given for the construction of steel silos in Ambala, Faridabad, Bhiwani, Rohtak, Jagadhri, Hansi, Uchana, Kurukshetra and Karnal,‖ the Minister said while talking to the mediapersons here.So far, the Food and Civil Supplies Department and other procurement agencies of the state have 84.39 lakh MT storage capacity. Kamboj claimed that due to various steps of the department, there is zero wastage of foodgrains from 2016 onwards. In the year 2013-14, out of the total foodgrains procured by the Government, 9549 MT was spoiled, which was reduced to 36 MT in the year 2015-16 and later it was brought to zero, he said adding that disciplinary action has been taken against employees or officials who were responsible for spoilage of foodgrains.

On the issue of defaulters rice millers, the Minister said that FIR had been registered against 94 defaulter rice millers from the year 2013 to 2017. Besides taking action on rice millers for not delivering the custom milled rice (CMR), actions are also being taken against the concerned inspector and sub-inspector, assistant food and supplies officer, he said.Delivery of 1,736 tonnes of rice of Kharif crops of rice millers were pending to Food Corporation of India in 2016-17. The State Government has a launched special campaign for recovery from rice millers, resultantly, in the last two years about 99 per cent CMR has been recovered, the Minister said. Kamboj also said that the State Government has recovered about Rs 11 crore for pending CMR of 2013-14 and 2015-16, from two rice millers. Besides this, directions were issued to attach property of three other rice millers of Kurukshetra by Deputy Commissioner to the tune of about Rs 25 crore. Cashless facility pilot project to begin in Pkl The Minister said that cashless facility would be started as a pilot project in district Panchkula for depot holders and Public Distribution System (PDS) consumers. Thereafter, the scheme would be implemented across the state. For this, current bank accounts of all depot holders are being opened in PNB banks, he added. With a view to ensure providing timely ration to consumers in the state, they have been linked with Aadhaar which has resulted in ousting of 25 lakh fake beneficiaries that has saved Rs 400 crore annually to the State exchequer, Kamboj said. He further said that no ration cards were printed in the state after 2005. The present Government has got 80 lakh ration cards printed in four colours namely khaki, yellow, green and pink, he added. Brick kilns have to adopt zig-zag technique by Oct ―With a view to make the state pollution-free, all the brick kilns would have to adopt zig-zag technique. No Brick Kiln owner would be allowed to use old techniques in brick kilns after October 1,‖ the Minister said. At present, there are 2741 brick kilns in the state, which adds to air and noise pollution, he said. The Minister said that for the health of the people and to make the state pollution free, the government had formulated a policy for brick kilns in 2017 and every brick would have to follow this policy. So far, 75 per cent of the brick kiln owners have adopted the zig-zag technique. Action to be taken against vendors for duping consumers Kamboj said that if any vendor is found weighing sweets alongwith the box, strict action would be initiated against him. During festival season, some vendors sell sweets by weighing them alongwith the box. If any complaint in this regard is received, action would be initiated against the vendor. The vendors can charge for boxes separately, but they cannot weight sweets or items alongwith box, he said. Under ‗Jago Grahak Jago‘ scheme, some vendors were challaned during recent years and Rs 12 lakh was imposed as fine, he added. https://www.dailypioneer.com/state-editions/chandigarh/steel-silos-of-950l-mt-storage-to-be-built-inharyana.html

A New Type of Fortified Rice Approved for Food Aid By Rebecca Bratter WASHINGTON, DC -Fortified rice was approved by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for inclusion in the commodity master list nearly four years ago. Since that time and through the end of 2017, rice tonnage in food assistance has been increasing as more fortified and regular milled rice has been programmed in USDA's McGovern Dole Food for Education and Food for Progress programs, as well as the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Food for Peace Program. In 2017, of the 103,000 MT of rice used in global feeding programs, approximately 25 percent or 25,000 MT consisted of fortified rice. The World Food Programme (WFP), as well as other relief organizations have expressed interest in increasing their use of fortified rice in global feeding programs. Additionally, USAID has committed to using all fortified rice in their future programs. "While the potential for significant tonnage increase has been present for some time, the fortified rice numbers are lower than what USA Rice had forecast, particularly given the current ongoing global hunger crisis," said Bobby Hanks, chairman of the USA Rice Food Aid Subcommittee. "For the first three quarters of this year, 15,000 MT of fortified rice has been programmed which suggests that tonnage in 2018 will be at the same level or lower than 2017." While there are many factors impacting fortified rice tonnage in food aid, USA Rice has worked closely with USDA and USAID leadership, as well as WFP, to ensure that the current commodity specification for fortified rice allows for the use of both extruded and a rinse resistant a fortified rice premix.

,


Up until last week, the commodity document only allowed for the use of extruded kernels. This may be one of the key factors limiting fortified rice tonnage in food aid and possibly limiting the number of companies that bid on food aid tenders to date. After years of research, global field testing, and stakeholder meetings, the USDA amended the commodity specification language last week adding the option to use either extruded or rinse resistant coated fortified rice and immediately issued a new tender for fortified rice in SubSaharan Africa allowing for either fortification technology. "This is definitely a positive step towards increased use of fortified rice in global food aid programs," said Hanks. "USA Rice looks forward to continued cooperation with our partners at USDA and USAID as we collaborate on shelf life and packaging details for fortified rice to strength its important role combatting both global hunger and malnutrition."

WASDE Report Released WASHINGTON, DC -- Total U.S. rice supplies for 2018/19 are raised slightly from last month due to increased beginning stocks that were mostly offset by a smaller crop. Beginning stocks are raised 2.5 million cwt on a 3.5-million export reduction for the 2017/18 crop year that is partially offset by increased domestic and residual use. U.S. rice production is lowered 2.1 million cwt to 210.9 million on the first survey-based yield forecast of the 2018/19 season. Long grain production is lowered 2.8 million cwt, while combined medium and short grain is raised 700,000 cwt. The all rice yield forecast is lowered 76 pounds per acre from the previous forecast to 7,523. Exports for the 2018/19 crop year are lowered 4 million cwt to 98 million on a lack of price competitiveness relative to both Asian and South American exporters. Ending stocks are raised 1.4 million cwt to 43.6 million and the 2018/19 all rice season-average farm price is lowered $0.20 per cwt at the midpoint to a range of $11.40 to $12.40. Global supplies for 2018/19 are lowered fractionally on reduced production for Madagascar and Iraq. World trade is raised slightly, led by higher Pakistan exports and Iraq imports. Global exports remain record large. Global consumption and ending stocks are each lowered

Rice tariffication to temper inflation By Leslie Gatpolintan August 9, 2018, 9:18 pm MANILA -- Liberalizing rice trade in the country can significantly temper inflation, the country‘s chief economist said.―If the Senate and Congress can pass the bill on rice tariffication, for example tomorrow, that would have already an impact, very noticeable impact on food inflation especially,‖ said Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Ernesto Pernia in a press conference on Thursday.Pernia believes the proposed replacement of quantitative restriction on rice with tariffication will have a ―bigger impact‖ in addressing inflation because rice has a dominant weight on the food basket of consumers, especially the poorest 30 percent.―Our inflation is mostly caused by the supply side: the availability of goods, high global oil prices. Those are the main causes of supply side inflation and the unavailability of rice on time,‖ he explained. Along with rice import tariffication, Pernia said the lowering of tariffs on selected basic commodities to a uniform five percent agreed among economic managers is intended as a temporary measure to alleviate the high food prices.Proposed tariff reductions will cover farm products like pork, corn, feed wheat and fish. ―The single rate reduction is a good strategy because it does not affect consumption much. It is easier to monitor and implement. The measure is temporary as the tariffs will revert once we get back to our normal inflation target,‖ he said.For her part, National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA) Undersecretary Rosemarie Edillon underscored the need for the country to build up the resilience of its agriculture sector so it will not be weather-dependent. ―We should be doing biotechnology and if we can have more resilient agriculture. What we forecast is that there would be (inflation) tempering towards the fourth quarter especially if it‘s the impact of tax reform (law), it should dissipate,‖ she said in an interview. The country‘s inflation rate picked up to 5.7 percent in July from the previous month‘s 5.2 percent, brought about by the spike in the prices of food and non-alcoholic beverage.

An old Kerala family farm is reviving the near-forgotten navara rice variety PRIYADERSHINI S AUGUST 10, 2018 12:52 IST

In Chittur, in the rice bowl of Kerala, the land flattens conspicuously, its evenness heightened by the undulating Western Ghats that loom large in the background. Here the Shokanashini (destroyer of woes), a tributary of the Bharathapuzha, irrigates the dark soil on which grows luscious paddy. Rains fall often here, enhancing the beauty of the landscape. Of late, peacocks have come to roost and their shrill cries are heard ever so often. Narayanan Unny‘s Navara Eco Farm is snuggled in this picturesque scenery. This 125year-old, 18-acre farm exclusively produces navara, a rice species acclaimed for its medically beneficial properties. Consumed traditionally during the wet months of karkidakam and used extensively in the famed navara kizhi Ayurvedic treatment, navara is a rice endemic to Kerala.

10 | w w w . r i c e p l u s m a g a z i n e . b l o g s p o t . c o m mujahid.riceplus@gmail.com

,


Not being a staple variety and used mainly as health food, the rice lost its prominence after the Land Ceiling Act of 1967, when paddy acreage was considerably reduced. In 1994, Narayanan Unny quit his computer business in Kozhikode and took charge of the family farm, after the demise of his father. He found that the rice with a 60-day life cycle, and consumed periodically, had being reduced to production of a mere 50 acres from the 2,000 that it once commanded. ―Even pure navara seeds were not available,‖ says Unny. He then made and executed a plan for conservation of navara. It began with a search for pure navara seeds, and not finding any, not even at the Rice Research Centre in Pattambi, Unny began seed purification in 15 cents of land, sowing only navara without another rice variety. He then planted the pure seeds in 12 acres. ―I was clear that there was a demand for this wellness rice and that it had to be grown organically.‖ Navara paddy is delicate with soft strands that wilt easily and is prone to rice pests. To make it organic, he tried and tested an array of natural pesticides — neem, marigold, tulsi, stale fish mix — but found them wanting in countering pest attacks. Finally, he came up with an innovative method of using a butterfly catching net to manually comb the paddy for pests twice a day. Along with his five colleagues, the workers on his farm, he brushes the paddy daily. ―It is the only successful pesticide-free method,‖ he says with pride. In 2003, the process for Organic certification of the farm was started. A year later, he along with all stakeholders, pitched for registration of Geographical Indication of navara. The move brought together farmers, the Kerala Agriculture University, Department of Agriculture, rice millers and traders with CII Kerala facilitating Navara Rice Farmers Society in the process. In 2007, the rice got its GI branding. ―We now have a traditional product which was on the verge of extinction,‖ says Unny, adding that the price of the rice depends on output.

,


For him, this journey has been special, of carrying forward the hard work done by three generations of his family. Unny believes that the rice has the potential to conquer the world as a health food. ―It can be a representative ethnic product.‖ And so he presents its story, his story in a telling narrative as a PPT to documentary filmmakers, scientists, agriculturists, conservationists, reporters, and chefs, who make a beeline to his farm looking for the rare purple rice. There are still more challenges ahead, the current one being particularly tricky. Wild boars and the preening peacocks that swarm over his farm destroy the delicate paddy. ―Both are protected species. Being the national bird, we are helpless when it comes to them; the peacocks are not so pretty after all,‖ he says with a sigh.

Trying to stop global warming by spraying aerosol particles in the stratosphere was not a very good idea: all of the benefits of slowing warming can be cut by the fall in yields because of the blackout, the authors write. One of the most popular ideas in the field of geoengineering (directional influence on the Earth‘s climate to combat anthropogenic warming) is the mass spraying in the stratosphere of aerosols containing sulphur compounds. It is assumed that such a ―stratospheric veil‖ will reduce the amount of sunlight reaching the Earth‘s surface, and slow the growth of the average temperature. Jonathan Proctor (Jonathan Proctor) at the University of California at Berkeley and his colleagues decided to find out how the creation of such a shield from solar radiation will affect agriculture. Because large-scale geoengineering experiments is considered too risky, scientists used natural analogue and the prototype of this process is the eruption of large volcanoes. For example, the volcano Pinatubo erupted in 1991, was thrown into the atmosphere approximately 20 million tons of sulfur dioxide, which reduced global average temperature by about half a degree Celsius. ―Blackout of the planet limits the growth temperature which helps crops grow better. But since plants need sunlight, his blocking could have an impact on growth. For agriculture the negative effects of this method on the scale of equal benefits. That‘s about as experimental surgical treatment: the side effects seem no better than the disease,‖ said Proctor, quoted by the press service of the University. The scientists compared data on the yields of corn, soybeans, rice and wheat in 105 countries over the period from 1979 to 2009, monitored data of the illumination and satellite observation of aerosols in the stratosphere. In the years there have been two major volcanic eruptions, El Chichon in Mexico in 1982 and Pinatubo in the Philippines 1991. They found that the additional diffusion of light due to aerosols reduced the yield of all crops: for example, after the Pinatubo eruption yield of maize due to changes in ambient light have been reduced by 9.3 percent, and the yield of corn, soybeans and rice — 4.8 per cent (part of the reduction could be offset by favorable plants decrease in temperature).

13 | w w w . r i c e p l u s m a g a z i n e . b l o g s p o t . c o m mujahid.riceplus@gmail.com

,


Then, using climate models, they showed that by mid century the entire gain in yield from a hypothetical ―veil‖ in the form of at least high temperatures will be closed it down because of the deteriorating light. Theoretically, farmers can adapt to reduced illumination, such as choosing more resistant varieties of it, however, the possibility and limits of such adaptation is difficult to assess. The researchers note that in some previous works spraying atmospheric aerosols was associated with an additional yield increase due to the fact that the scattered light better reaches the leaves inside the crown. Apparently, this effect is weaker than previously thought, because the authors did not see a net increase in the yield over the lifetime of aerosols. According to scientists, their result does not imply that the method of spraying aerosols should be abandoned, perhaps in other sectors of the economy the positive impact will be substantial. They insist that before proceeding to the experiments, you need to understand the benefits, costs, and risks of geoengineering projects, which while very little is known. http://micetimes.asia/the-scientists-said-why-not-cool-the-earth/

Cabinet unanimously rejects zero tariff plan Presidential spokesman Harry Roque told reporters that no Cabinet member had voiced support for the zero tariff proposal which, if implemented, would likely flood the market with imported goods. Alexis Romero (The Philippine Star) - August 10, 2018 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — Cabinet officials are unanimously against the proposal to reduce to zero the tariff on some agriculture products as part of measures to control inflation, citing the scheme‘s adverse effect on local producers, Malacañang said yesterday.Presidential spokesman Harry Roque told reporters that no Cabinet member had voiced support for the zero tariff proposal which, if implemented, would likely flood the market with imported goods. Albay Rep. Joey Salceda on Wednesday announced that President Duterte would issue an executive order imposing zero tariff on imported fish, corn and vegetables and feed wheat to rein in inflation.

Salceda said the EO would be released at the end of Congress‘ 11-day break beginning next weekend.

The zero-tariff tack was supposedly one of the counter-inflation measures proposed by Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and other House leaders at a meeting with President Duterte‘s economic team last week. ―I do not know the source of Congressman Salceda‘s information. But what I know is there are discussions and there are different opinions. (Agriculture) Secretary (Emmanuel) Piñol says it‘s going to be war with domestic agricultural producers. And nobody is advocating zero in the Cabinet right now,‖ Roque said at a press briefing. ―I verified from the economic team, they listened to the suggestion of former president and Speaker GMA. But no one actually agreed that it should be done. So there‘s a possibility of reducing tariffs, but no one in the Cabinet has told me that they will actually endorse zero tariffs,‖ he added. Roque cited the need to balance the need to lower inflation and to protect local producers. ―I think (Trade) Secretary (Ramon) Lopez had a balanced view. Tariffs may be lowered but they cannot be removed,‖ the spokesman said.

,


―What I know is no one is saying that there will be zero tariff. But the lowering of tariff is possible,‖ he added. At a Senate hearing on Wednesday, Socioeconomic Planning Secretary Ernesto Pernia also talked about a planned EO – but only on reducing tariff and not removing it outright. Inflation, or the rate at which the prices of goods and services is rising, hit 5.7 percent in July, higher than 5.2 percent in June and the fastest in over five years – largely because of higher food and transport costs. Senators called on Malacañang to tread carefully on its plan to issue an EO on tariff cut. ―It will reduce prices definitely but at what cost to our local producers? Once the market is flooded with imported meat, fish and vegetables, prices will go down for sure following the law of supply and demand,‖ Sen. Panfilo Lacson said. ―However, our local producers – the farmers, hog and fowl raisers – will also suffer since they may not be able to compete, considering their high cost of production,‖ he added. Senate President Vicente Sotto III said he wants to see a matrix on the effect of tariff cut on local producers before an EO on the matter is issued. Sen. Joseph Victor Ejercito said the economic managers should study carefully the impact of zero or lower tariff on local rice farmers. ―We need to be careful that it doesn‘t cause more hardship to those in the agricultural sector,‖ he said. ―Development is not a zero-sum game where one sector wins at the expense of another group,‖ Ejercito said. Sen. Francis Pangilinan called on the government to provide greater support for the rice farmers so that they could produce more. He suggested that the tariff collected from imported rice be earmarked for support services for the farmers. Shorter list In a television interview yesterday, however, Salceda revealed a shorter list of products that could be imported at cheaper price. Salceda said fish was delisted following the removal of meat on Wednesday reportedly due to ―strong lobby‖ from meat industry leaders. He did not elaborate. ―So we are now left with the ingredients – corn and wheat flour – and rice,‖ he said.

,


Salceda reiterated the proposal of House leaders for executive agencies to defer any ―regulated price adjustments‖ for electricity, water and oil products until inflation falls. He said the high cost of power and fuel is the top inflation driver, contributing .9 percent to the 5.7-percent inflation in July as reported by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA). He said fish accounted for the second largest contribution at .7 percent among 10 products and services the PSA monitored. Rice contributed .5 percent, and fish and meat .4 percent each, he said. Rep. Michael Romero of 1-Pacman, an economist like Arroyo and Salceda, has said the antiinflation measures proposed by the Speaker could cut inflation by 1.8 percent to less than five percent. Salceda indicated that the pressure to narrow the proposed zero tariff list comes from members of the Cabinet. ―We can understand the position of Agriculture Secretary Manny Piñol, who has to protect his constituency,‖ he said. He said the House could not insist on its recommended counter-inflation measures. He recalled that in 2008, when Arroyo was president, ―we took strong measures, including imposing price control on oil products, to arrest inflation.‖ ―We were in the executive (branch) then. But now, we are in the legislature, so we could only suggest,‖ Salceda, who was then Arroyo‘s economic adviser, said. A congressman, who is part of the Speaker‘s economic team, told The STAR that their proposal to reduce tariff on meat and fish to zero was meant to bring down the price not only of fresh meat and fish but of canned products as well. ―In particular, we were targeting canned sardines, which the poor buy,‖ he said. Alarming Some lawmakers, meanwhile, find the proposal to import more rice alarming. They said any shortage could be artificial and just a result of maneuvering by a cartel. ―Rice self-sufficiency is the anchor of the national food security policy. It is perfectly achievable with adequate support from government and a public-private backed credit program,‖ Butil party-list Rep. Cecilia Leonila Chavez said. ―To abandon the pursuit of self-sufficiency is suicidal, ill-advised and the equivalent of betraying our rice farmers,‖ she said.

,


―I have this fear that there is rejoicing in the rice production centers of Thailand and Vietnam after hearing the policy declaration from the Department of Agriculture, with support and prodding from the economic managers,‖ Chavez said. Chavez, who belongs to the super majority coalition in the House, said that importing more rice would be a ―slap on the nationalist programs‖ of President Duterte. House Minority Leader Danilo Suarez expressed the same concerns. The Quezon congressman is opposed to the rice tariffication bill, which the House passed on second reading Tuesday. He noted that only foreign farmers from rice exporting countries like Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia and Laos stand to benefit from such measure. ―We‘re just making their farmers rich. Let‘s take care of our farmers first,‖ he said in Filipino. Grains industry players said the National Food Authority (NFA) should not immediately release the additional rice imports to the market. ―As long as it is not released in the market to protect the farmers. We are expecting a bountiful harvest because it is rainy season so those not covered by irrigation, they will be able to harvest,‖ Philippine Confederation of Grains Association (PCGA) president Joji Co said. ―The only time to release is by early January which is also considered lean month. If, weather permitting, we can have a good harvest, the price and supply will surely stabilize and the planned import can be our buffer stock,‖ he added. PCGA said it has no problem with the proposal to import 500,000 metric tons (MT) of rice as part of measures to control inflation. ‘Timing is important’ But Co emphasized the government should have thought of importing as early as the first quarter to avoid the depletion of NFA stocks. ―Timing is very important. Their statement before is that they should not import rice because it‘s the summer harvest season. That is wrong because even if you import, it will only affect the price of palay if you are going to sell it in the market,‖ Co said. ―At that time, prices are down in the world market and it would have been good to import. When it arrives, just store it in the NFA warehouses and don‘t sell it to the market so as not to affect local palay,‖ he added.This, however, did not happen as the NFA began the importation at the start of the lean months, causing delays in delivery and prompting the immediate release of rice imports to the market. As more importation looms, the Department of Finance (DOF) has ordered the Bureau of Customs (BOC) to be on alert for possible smuggling of rice and sugar.

At a DOF executive committee meeting, Finance Secretary Carlos Dominguez III also told the BOC led by Commissioner Isidro Lapeña to speed up the auction of seized smuggled rice stocks. Junk TRAIN Meanwhile, the militant Bagong Alyansang Makabayan (Bayan) said the record 5.7 percent inflation rate should make lawmakers work to junk the TRAIN law. ―The tariff reduction‘s effect on high prices may not even be immediately felt, whereas scrapping or suspending TRAIN will have an immediate effect on prices,‖ Bayan secretarygeneral Renato Reyes said. ―It makes more sense to support local production and increase domestic supply as a way to stabilize prices, rather than give another advantage to importers,‖ he said. ―Zero-tariff importation is not the solution to a problem, obviously created by the Duterteinstigated inflation via his TRAIN law, when monopoly traders dominate our economy, the proposal will only guarantee their giant, super-profits, while poor sectors are suffering from high prices and losses in livelihood,‖ said Zenaida Soriano, chair of the National Federation of Peasant Women. – With Jess Diaz, Marvin Sy, Delon Porcalla, Rhodina Villanueva, Louise Maureen Simeon, Mary Grace Padin https://www.philstar.com/headlines/2018/08/10/1841352/cabinet-unanimously-rejects-zerotariff-plan#MgVRkeUDTCEMxirt.99

EDITORIAL- Flood of imports (The Philippine Star) - August 11, 2018 - 12:00am

With inflation at a five-year high, it looks like the government has set its mind on flooding the market with imported rice. While any supply glut pulls down the price of a product, local rice farmers are naturally worried. Their gains from an expected bumper harvest later this year could be wiped out. Has the government given up on its objective of making the country self-sufficient in its staple? Farmers, who are among the poorest in the country, want to know. There has been no official pronouncement from Malacañang, but those pushing rice importation are sending that message. The country, they argue, lacks the Mekong River system that ensures sufficient irrigation for the rice fields of Southeast Asia‘s top producers Thailand and Vietnam. But the Mekong also passes through Cambodia, Laos and Myanmar, which are not major rice exporters. There is such a thing as efficient water management. The Philippines is aiming merely to be selfsufficient rather than an exporter of rice. The lack of farm support facilities, however, compounds periodic irrigation problems. Millions of Filipinos depend on agriculture for their livelihood. With inadequate infrastructure and support facilities, rice fields in the lowlands could suffer the fate of the rice terraces in Banaue – a UNESCO World Heritage Site whose soil is

threatened by giant earthworms, and which younger generations of Ifugaos no longer want to farm.

Consumers will welcome any reduction in prices especially of the country‘s staple, although with the peso weakening, any price cut as a result of importation may be unsustainable. Even as policy makers rush to open the import floodgates, the government cannot abandon efforts to boost local rice production. Millions of rice farmers are beneficiaries of the agrarian reform program and own small farms, with little or no capital to invest in mechanized operations and better irrigation systems. The government can set up centers in rice producing areas where marginalized farmers can rent machinery and other equipment at reasonable rates. The centers can provide micro lending facilities along with assistance for rice farmers at every step, from tilling the land to harvesting, threshing, sacking, transporting and marketing.Proponents of rice tariffication and the expected flood of imports say the move is a necessary intervention to bring down rice prices. The interventions for increasing local rice production must be just as aggressive. The flood of imports must not sweep away the livelihoods of Filipino farmers

Kerala rains: All shutters opened at Idukki dam VINSON KURIANT+ T-

The Cheruthoni Dam, moments after all the shutters were opened. Credits- Screen capture from Asianet News THIRUVANANTHAPURAM Continued copious inflows and intermittent spells of heavy rain have forced authorities to open the fifth shutter at the Cheruthoni dam, spillway for the Idukki reservoir, largest in Kerala, letting out 14,126 cusecs.The fifth and last shutter has been opened as well, the first time ever since the Idukki came into existence in the mid-1970s. RELIEF & RESCUE A press release from the Defence Wing of the Press Information Bureau said that Army and Air Force have swung into action for disaster relief and rescue operations in monsoon-battered Kerala. Eight columns of the Army have been deployed in different parts of the state. The Army station located at Pangode near here had already deployed one column to Idukki under a Captain rank officer. They are stationed at Adimali in Idukki where rescue operations are progressing. Defence Security Corps (DSC) Kannur has already deployed to Idukki. So there are two columns operational in the district. DSC Kannur has also sent out four columns at Iritty (Kannur), Thamarassery (Kozhikode), and the worst-hit and marooned Wayanad and Malappuram districts.

The Indian Air Force has pressed into service two helicopters for search and rescue operation. One Mi-17IV and an Advanced Light Helicopter have been deployed from the Sulur Air Force Base. IDUKKI WATER LEVEL Meanwhile, the water level at Idukki has touched 2401.60 ft at 1 pm against a full reservoir level of 2403 feet. The hourly gross inflows are at 31,783 cusecs. Six hourly average net inflows are 17,092 cusecs. The spillover is 10,594 cusecs with three shutters opened and one shutter lifted as high as 50 cm. The Navy has said that it is upgrading its alert in the constantly evolving scenario. Opening of the Kakki, Cheruthoni, Idamalayar and Idukki reservoirs may lead to a rise in levels in rivers flowing through downstream districts. Tourism Minister Kadakampally Surendran said that all tourists marooned in a resort at Idukki are safe. Earlier today, the US government had warned citizens against travelling to monsoon-ravaged Kerala. Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan has cancelled all his programmes and will be stationed here in the context of the grave situation and also forecast heavy rains over the next few days as well. India Met Department (IMD) has warned of another rain-driving low-pressure area to form over the Bay of Bay of Bengal during the next three days https://www.thehindubusinessline.com/news/national/kerala-rains-the-fifth-and-last-shutter-opened-atidukki/article24653420.ece

Pulses, oilseeds lift kharif acreage OUR BUREAUT+ T-

But total sowing is still down by 1.5% NEW DELHI, AUGUST 10 Better-than-usual acreage under pulses and oilseeds has lifted kharif sowing this week even though it continues to be marginally lower than in the corresponding period last year.Till Friday, the total area planted stood at 924.76 lakh hectares (lh), which is about 1.48 per cent lower than 938.66 lh sown during the same period last year, according to the latest sowing data released by the Agriculture Ministry.

The planting of rice was down by 2.85 per cent on lack of rains as compared to last year. While there was a significant increase in transplantation reported from many States, including Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Telangana, Andhra Pradesh, Odisha, Haryana and Punjab, the rice acreage was down in West Bengal, Manipur and Assam. The area covered under rice was at 307.78 lh. Coverage of pulses was done on 124.15 lh – a tad lower than last year‘s acreage – but more than a million hectares higher than the normal area sown during the kharif season. While moong and arhar planting looks promising, urad was down by nearly 12 per cent to less than 35 lh.Acreage of oilseeds, driven mainly by a rise in soyabean coverage, was at 162.47 lh, which is over 5 per cent compared to the last kharif season so far.Among coarse cereals, the area under jowar was up 11 per cent from the corresponding week last year, but bajra‘s area was lower by the same percentage.The area under cotton cultivation, still down by 3.85 per cent as compared to the corresponding period last year, managed to cross 112 lh. While higher acreage under cotton was reported mainly from Telangana, Maharashtra and Rajasthan, cultivation was down in Punjab and Karnataka.

New Delhi: Rain-fed Kharif crops have been planted in 92.5 million hectares so far, 1.5% lower than a year ago, according to data released by the agriculture ministry on Friday. Area planted till date covers 87% of the seasonal area of 106 million hectares. According to latest data, plantings are lower for crops such as rice, pulses, coarse grains and cotton, and higher for sugarcane and oilseeds, compared to the year-ago period. The uneven spread of the June to September south-west monsoon, which waters over half of the Kharif crop area, has led to lower plantings for some crops, including rice. So far the monsoon has seen a deficit of 11% compared to the normal or 50-year average, with the highest deficiency in rice-growing states of Bihar, Jharkhand, West Bengal, Assam and Manipur. Rice, the main Kharif crop, has been planted in 30.8 million hectares so far, about 2.8% lower than the 31.7 million hectares last year. Deficit rains in states such as Gujarat and Maharashtra is likely to impact productivity of cotton. So far, cotton has been planted in 11.2 million hectares, 3.8% lower than the 11.7 million hectares a year ago. Among pulses, plantings are higher for moong and lower for long duration varieties such as urad and arhar. Overall, planting of different pulses are 2.9% lower year on year, while area under coarse grains is 3.3% less than last year. Two major crops where plantings are significantly higher are soybean and sugarcane. Planting of soybean and sugarcane is 9% and 1.5% higher, respectively, than last year.While uneven rains were unlikely to make any significant dents in aggregate foodgrain production, it could possibly spike farm distress in parts of Maharashtra, Jharkhand, Gujarat and Andhra Pradesh. https://www.livemint.com/Industry/h9C9osUqCUwYhAn4E1faQL/Kharif-crops-planted-in-925-mnhectares-15-lower-than-la.html

Rice stocks decline as of July 1 August 10, 2018 | 7:19 pm

PHILSTAR RICE STOCKS as of the start of July were estimated at 1.99 million metric tons (MT), down year-on-year and month-on-month, data from the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) showed.

PSA‘s Rice and Corn Stocks Inventory report released on Friday showed stocks as of July 1 were 15.21% lower from 2.35 million MT a year ago and 15.68% down from the previous month‘s 2.36 million MT inventory.

Household stocks made up 49.85% of the total inventories, followed by warehouses with a 47.47% share. The National Food Authority (NFA) cornered the remaining 2.68%, with 48.78% of its stocks from rice imports. The rice stocks as of July 1 are considered sufficient for about 62 days, a drop from last June 1 when stocks were deemed sufficient for nearly 74 days.However, unlike last month when NFA‘s stocks could barely last a day, the agency‘s latest inventory is estimated to last for about a day on the back of the ongoing unloading of imported rice, which has been hampered by poor weather. The NFA is mandated to maintain at least 15 days‘ worth of buffer stock at any given time and at least 30 days‘ worth of buffer stock for lean months, which starts every July.All three sectors posted year-on-year drops, with the NFA recording the sharpest at 65.60%. The commercial sector‘s stocks dropped 21.12%, while household inventories slid 0.24%.

Likewise, corn stocks as of July 1 stood at 480,860 MT, lower by 29.66% year-on-year and 18.78% month-on-month.Corn inventory declined year-on-year in all three sectors. Household stocks slid 7.03%, while commercial and NFA stocks dropped 31.42% and 100%, respectively. Month-on-month, the PSA reported a 22.88% drop in commercial warehouse corn stocks which offset the 29.25% increase in household stocks. — A.G.A.

Red Cross warns of food crisis in North Korea as crops fail in heat Stephanie Nebehay UGUST 10, 2018 / 1:34 PM / GENEVA (Reuters) - A heat wave in North Korea has led to rice, maize and other crops withering in the fields, ―with potentially catastrophic effects‖, the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (IFRC) said on Friday.FILE PHOTO: North Korean farm in the field, along the Yalu River, in Sakchu county, North Phyongan Province, North Korea, June 20, 2015. REUTERS/Jacky Chen The world‘s largest disaster relief network warned of a risk of a ―full-blown food security crisis‖ in the isolated country, where a famine in the mid-1990s killed up to three million people. It said the worrying situation had been exacerbated by international sanctions imposed due to North Korea‘s nuclear and missile programs.In a statement issued in Geneva, the IFRC said there had been no rainfall since early July as temperatures soared to an average 39 Celsius (102 Fahrenheit) across the country, whose official name is the Democratic People‘s Republic of Korea (DPRK). The next rain was expected in mid-August. The population of 25 million is already stressed and vulnerable with malnutrition among children that could worsen, stunting their growth, it said.―This is not yet classified as a drought, but rice, maize and other crops are already withering in the fields, with potentially catastrophic effects for the people of DPRK,‖ said Joseph Muyamboit, the IFRC‘s program manager in Pyongyang.―We cannot and must not let this situation become a full-blown food security crisis. We know that previous serious dry spells have disrupted the food supply to a point where it has caused serious health problems and malnutrition across the country.‖North Korea called last week for an ―allout battle‖ against the record temperatures threatening crops, referring to an ―unprecedented natural disaster‖.

Drought and floods have long been a seasonal threat in North Korea, which lacks irrigation systems and other infrastructure to ward off natural disasters.In Seoul, South Korea‘s Unification Ministry said it had no specific information on the situation in the north, but that the Red Cross had notified them of the heat wave last week.The IFRC was helping the national Red Cross to support 13,700 of the most vulnerable people at risk, in South Hamgyong and South Pyongan provinces. It had deployed emergency response teams and 20 water pumps to irrigate fields in the hardest-hit areas, it said.David Beasley, the head of the U.N.‘s World Food Programme (WFP), visited North Korea in May to look into boosting food distributions to hungry women and children, in the latest sign of an opening.About 70 percent of North Koreans are ―food insecure‖, meaning they struggle to avoid hunger, and one in four children under five is stunted from chronic malnutrition, the WFP said at the time. A 2015 drought worsened the situation, it said.Reporting and writing by Stephanie Nebehay; additional reporting by Josh Smith in Seoul; Editing by Catherine Evans Our Standards:The Thomson Reuters Trust Principles. https://www.reuters.com/article/us-northkorea-crops/red-cross-warns-of-food-crisis-in-northkorea-as-crops-fail-in-heat-idUSKBN1KV0SI

Dam reservoirs and rivers overflowed, sections of highways collapsed and homes were swept away in severe flooding in more than half of Kerala, after days of incessant rain left nearly 54,000 people homeless and killed at least 29, officials said on Friday. Five columns of the Army were deployed in the State‘s seven severely-hit northern districts, out of Kerala‘s 14, to help evacuate people and to build makeshift bridges even as the Navy‘s Southern Command was put on alert after water level in the Periyar river rose amid concern that parts of Wellingdon Island in Kochi could be inundated.

Casualties Almost all 40-odd rivers in the State are in spate, officials said. Northern and central Kerala have been battered by heavy rains since August 8, which has left 29 people dead, including three today. Of them, 25 died in landslides and four in drowning. State officials said a total of 53,501 people are now housed in 439 relief camps across the State. Tourists were barred from entering the hilly Idukki district after roads caved in at many places. Army engineers are building small bridges to evacuate people stranded at various places in Kozhikode and Wayanad.

Red alert in Idukki A red alert was issued for Idukki and its adjoining districts in view of the possibility of release of more water from the Idukki reservoir. At least 50 tourists, including 24 foreigners, stranded at the Plum Judy resort at Munnar since Wednesday were rescued and taken to safer places, State Tourism Minister Kadakampally Surendran said. People living downstream of the Periyar river in Kochi, and the Cheruthoni river in Idukki have been alerted. Water levels had crossed the maximum storage capacity of 24 reservoirs out of the State‘s 58 dams, forcing officials to release water from them, including three of the Idukki reservoir.

The fifth shutter of the Cheruthoni dam in Idukki was opened on Friday

All five shutters of the Cheruthoni dam, part of the Idukki reservoir, the biggest arch dam in Asia, were opened today. One shutter was opened yesterday after a gap of 26 years; the fifth was opened after 40 years.

Due to the increase in the water level at Idukki dam, ―it is essential to release water three times more than what was being released now,‖ Vijayan said, adding that this will lead to rise in the water levels of the Periyar river and its tributaries. He appealed to people to be vigilant. Vijayan has cancelled all his public functions till August 12, and will monitor the situation from the State capital. Union Tourism Minister KJ Alphons Kannamthanam said he discussed the flood situation in Kerala with Home Minister Rajnath Singh this morning. Singh also spoke with Vijayan, and will make an aerial survey of the flood-affected areas on Sunday.

Central help ―The Government of India is providing all the required assistance, including the services of the armed forces, disaster management team and other required assistance. Any other immediate assistance requested by the Government of Kerala will be provided,‖ Alphons said in a Facebook post. Colonel Ajai Sharma, Commandant of DSC Centre, who is overseeing relief and rescue operations, said five columns of the Army have been deployed in the northern districts since last night.Small bridges have been constructed to evacuate stranded people in various places in Kozhikode and

NFA rice imports start arriving in Eastern Visayas By Sarwell Meniano August 10, 2018, 3:47 pm RICE AVAILABLE. The vessel from Thailand carrying rice imports for Eastern Visayas arrives in Tacloban Thursday night (August 9, 2018). (Photo by Sarwell Meniano) TACLOBAN CITY -- Cheaper rice will be available in the market as early as Monday, as the first two tranches of rice imports have already arrived in the city.

National Food Authority (NFA) Eastern Visayas Regional Manager John Robert Hermano said the unloading of 79,000 bags of rice from Thailand has started Friday afternoon. The vessel arrived at the Tacloban seaport Thursday night.Another foreign vessel carrying 140,000 bags of Thai rice, which was stuck at Bacolod port for several weeks, finally arrived in this city early Friday. A series of weather disturbances in the past few weeks delayed the rice delivery.More shipments of Thai rice will arrive in the region within this month to complete the 480,000 bags requirement for July to December 2018. Tacloban will be prioritized in the distribution next week considering its proximity to the port.Replenishing of stocks will follow in Ormoc City in western Leyte and Catbalogan City in Samar, said the NFA official.―Having subsidized rice back in the market will bring the price of staple food in the market lower since the difference is more than PHP10 per kilogram,‖ Hermano said.Of the 480,000 sacks of rice, 124,000 bags is intended for Leyte, 50,000 bags for Southern Leyte, 30,000 bags for Biliran, 80,000 bags for Samar, 106,000 bags for Northern Samar, and 90,000 bags for Eastern Samar.The new stocks will be available at PHP32 per kilogram in public markets and PHP27 per kilogram in economicallydepressed areas. ―The NFA will deploy teams to the market to prevent rice hoarding, mixing of NFA and commercial rice, and overpricing,‖ Hermano added.The country is supposed to receive the rice shipment between May to June, but it was delayed due to failure of bidding last April. Since early this year, the NFA has stopped selling rice in the six Eastern Visayas provinces after stocks dwindled significantly.The government attempted to replenish stocks through the import of 250,000 metric tons but bidding failed in the last week of April. The country reopened offers from the governments of Vietnam and Thailand in early May. http://www.pna.gov.ph/articles/1044444

Rice stocks decline as of July 1 August 10, 2018 | 7:19 pm PHILSTAR

RICE STOCKS as of the start of July were estimated at 1.99 million metric tons (MT), down year-on-year and month-on-month, data from the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) showed.PSA‘s Rice and Corn Stocks Inventory report released on Friday showed stocks as of July 1 were 15.21% lower from 2.35 million MT a year ago and 15.68% down from the previous month‘s 2.36 million MT inventory.

Household stocks made up 49.85% of the total inventories, followed by warehouses with a 47.47% share. The National Food Authority (NFA) cornered the remaining 2.68%, with 48.78% of its stocks from rice imports. The rice stocks as of July 1 are considered sufficient for about 62 days, a drop from last June 1 when stocks were deemed sufficient for nearly 74 days. However, unlike last month when NFA‘s stocks could barely last a day, the agency‘s latest inventory is estimated to last for about a day on the back of the ongoing unloading of imported rice, which has been hampered by poor weather.

The NFA is mandated to maintain at least 15 days‘ worth of buffer stock at any given time and at least 30 days‘ worth of buffer stock for lean months, which starts every July. All three sectors posted year-on-year drops, with the NFA recording the sharpest at 65.60%. The commercial sector‘s stocks dropped 21.12%, while household inventories slid 0.24%. Likewise, corn stocks as of July 1 stood at 480,860 MT, lower by 29.66% year-onyear and 18.78% month-on-month. Corn inventory declined year-on-year in all three sectors. Household stocks slid 7.03%, while commercial and NFA stocks dropped 31.42% and 100%, respectively. Month-on-month, the PSA reported a 22.88% drop in commercial warehouse corn stocks which offset the 29.25% increase in household stocks. — A.G.A.

Solons divided over budget cuts, set pow-wow posted August 11, 2018 at 01:30 am by Maricel Cruz

Lawmakers on Friday stressed the need to put up safety nets for rice farmers if the government wants to allow the private sector to import rice as a way of reducing inflation, and warned that budget cuts could hurt the country‘s electrification program and imperil the free college tuition law. House Majority Leader and Camarines Sur Rep. Rolando Andaya Jr. said Friday that help for farmers could come by way of projects led by the Department of Agriculture, such as irrigation systems. He said this would entail allocating more funds to the Agriculture department in the 2019 national budget, after its budget was cut from P61 billion in 2018 to P55.9 billion. ―There are safety nets. There is one school of thought that the projects to help farmers be advanced instead of waiting for them to be funded by income from the duties on rice to be imported,‖ Andaya said. ―There is merit in that proposal…. You do not set up the safety net when the person it is supposed to catch is already falling.‖

41 | w w w . r i c e p l u s m a g a z i n e . b l o g s p o t . c o m mujahid.riceplus@gmail.com

,


But Andaya said the DA should also consider its absorptive capacity in implementing the projects to help the farmers. Andaya said the government should not wait for earnings from rice importers, who must pay a 35- percent tariff under a new bill that would enable private companies to import the grain. Andaya said the once passed into law, quantitative restrictions on rice imports would be lifted and permit the influx of cheap rice from abroad, hurting local farmers. Andaya noted that tariffs from rice imports in Southeast Asian countries such as Thailand and Vietnam were used to fund mass irrigation, warehouse, and rice research. Meanwhile, Davao City Rep. Karlo Nograles warned that the P621.68-million reduction in the budget of the Department of Energy would hurt its electrification program. During the budget hearing on the DoE‘s proposed P2.04-billion budget for 2019, Nograles, chairman of the House committee on appropriations, said he is opposed to reducing the budget of the key agencies of government. These budget reductions will hurt the delivery of services by concerned agencies such as the DoE, Nograles said The DoE proposed a P621.68 million for 2019 or 23 percent lower than its P2.65-billion allocation for this year. ―It burdens me to see something like the NEA [National Electrification Administration] and the DoE getting very huge cuts, especially for us coming from the provinces,‖ Nograles said. If government agencies are not given the budget they need, economic development in the countryside will be unattainable, Nograles said. Nograles added that President Rodrigo Duterte wants complete electrification of the sitios in Mindanao before his term ends in 2022. ―Isn‘t it embarrassing that Mindanao is not getting the support it needs considering that the President is from the island,‖ Nograles said. Lawmakers will meet with senators next week to find ways so that the so-called ―cash-based‖ budget system will not jeopardize the second-semester implementation of the free college tuition law. ―The House leadership will talk to the Senate leaders Monday next week to discuss the cashbased budget system,‖ Nograles said. Under the proposed cash-based 2019 P3.757-trillion national budget, all payouts are valid within the fiscal year and only three months the following year or until March 2020. Next year the national government will adopt the cash-budgeting system that calls for the payment of goods and services on the same year that they were acquired.

,


Nograles said the House has sent emissaries to discuss the matter with the Senate and that he relayed the concern and sentiments of the House. During Thursday‘s budget deliberations on Commission on Higher Education, CHED officer-incharge, Commissioner Prospero de Vera III admitted that the Commission will have difficulty implementing the free tuition law because the second semester covers until May or June 2020 where the 2019 national appropriations will no longer be in effect under the cash-based budget. ―We will be severely hampered in implementing RA [Republic Act No.] 10931 because the first semester for some universities start in June,‖ De Vera said. Nograles echoed De Vera‘s concern on how the free tuition law would be hurt by the cash-based system. ―We are very concerned with cash-based budgeting in terms of implementation of the free higher education law which we [House] funded in 2018 with P40 billion and we‘re funding in 2019 with P50 billion,‖ said Nograles. ―Realistically [under] cash-based budgeting, you will only be able to spend from the P50 billion what is billed to you by the SUCs [state universities and colleges] for the first semester. What happens to the second semester and the other half of the P50 billion?‖ Nograles said.

‘Inflation may hit 6% without interventions’ - Joey Salceda It could hit six percent or even beyond without vigorous counter-inflation measures,‖ Salceda told ―The Chiefs‖ show on Cignal TV‘s One News channel. Edd Gumban

Jess Diaz (The Philippine Star) - August 11, 2018 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines — Inflation or the rate of increase in the prices of goods and services could reach a new record high this month if the government does nothing drastic to keep it in check, Albay Rep. Joey Salceda warned yesterday.―It could hit six percent or even beyond without vigorous counter-inflation measures,‖ Salceda told ―The Chiefs‖ show on Cignal TV‘s One News channel. Inflation reached 5.7 percent in July from 5.2 percent in June.He said consumer prices have been steadily rising since January, when the government imposed new and higher taxes under the controversial Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion (TRAIN) law.

43 | w w w . r i c e p l u s m a g a z i n e . b l o g s p o t . c o m mujahid.riceplus@gmail.com

,


―There is persisting inflationary pressure within the system. We should really be crying wolf. This is the first near-crisis for the Duterte administration. Our worry really is a spiral,‖ he said.

Salceda pointed out that the inability of domestic producers to meet demand is the reason why Speaker Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo and other leaders of the House of Representatives proposed zero tariff on certain products to allow the private sector to bring in supply. The zero-tariff list proposed by the House originally covered meat, fish, corn, feed wheat and vegetables before it was narrowed down to only corn and feed wheat. Salceda, an economist, said higher inflation would produce ―more poor and more hungry Filipinos.‖ Another economist in the House, Rep. Michael Romero of party-list 1-Pacman, said a six-percent inflation rate would take away P300 from a poor household with an income of P5,000 a month. ―That means that this family‘s P5,000 is worth only P4,700 due to higher consumer prices. It could make do with its reduced purchasing power by buying fewer goods, which means less rice and food on the table,‖ he said. He said if this household receives a subsidy of P200 under TRAIN, its net loss is P100.

44 | w w w . r i c e p l u s m a g a z i n e . b l o g s p o t . c o m mujahid.riceplus@gmail.com

,


Romero added that this is the reason why he is proposing that the TRAIN subsidy to 10 million households be increased to P500 ―to allow poor families to cope with inflation and the depreciation in the value of the peso.‖ Finance Undersecretary Karl Chua has told the House ways and means committee that total collections under the tax reform law would reach P285 billion this year, while the revenue loss from lower individual income tax is estimated at P140 billion, for a net gain of P145 billion. Critics have blamed inflation largely on new and higher taxes imposed under TRAIN starting in January. Last month‘s rate was the highest in more than five years. As the House of Representatives prepares to approve on third and final reading the rice tariffication bill before next week‘s recess, senators warned Malacañang that setting tariffs on basic agricultural products should only be a temporary measure. Sen. Sherwin Gatchalian, chairman of the Senate committee on economic affairs, said the surge in inflation is largely due to the rising prices of commodities. ―And the reason for the rising prices in food commodities is due to the imbalance in supply and demand,‖ he said. Sen. Francis Pangilinan said he is inclined to support such a move but warned against reducing tariffs to zero. ―They said it‘s a temporary measure and yes, prices will go down but I‘m concerned if they‘re going to make it zero,‖ Pangilinan said. ―There will be more imported produce but our farmers will not be able to recover because they can‘t compete price-wise, so it‘s really a difficult balance,‖ he said. Under the rice tariffication bill, volume restrictions on rice imports would be replaced with 40percent tariff. Duties collected from the importation of rice would go to a rice competitiveness enhancement fund to be used to assist farmers. Rep. Jose Panganiban Jr. of party-list ANAC-IP, agriculture committee chairman, is the principal author and sponsor of the bill. Camarines Sur Rep. Luis Raymund Villafuerte, a co-author, said the proposed law ―will not only pull down the price of rice by as much as P7 per kilo but also set up a huge support fund that will enable palay growers to increase their harvests while reducing their production costs.‖ Majority Leader Rolando Andaya Jr. said safety nets for farmers ―should be advanced instead of waiting for them to be funded by income from the duties on rice to be imported.‖

Rice prices in India hold steady; low rainfall may hurt output Reuters 11:45 am August 10th, 2018

A labourer plants saplings in a paddy field on the outskirts of Agartala, capital of Tripura state, July 30, 2014 Reuters

Yields could (be) impacted if rainfall fails to improve next week Rice prices in India held steady this week as concerns over lower production due to below-normal rainfall offset sluggish demand in the world‘s top rice exporter.

Prices for India‘s 5% broken parboiled variety were hovering between $392-$396 per tonne this week, unchanged from last week.India‘s rice exports in April to June rose 4.4% from a year ago to 3.15 million tonnes due to good demand from African countries. ―Rice planting has been lagging due to poor rainfall. Yields could (be) impacted if rainfall fails to improve next week,‖ said an exporter based at Kakinada in the southern state of Andhra Pradesh. Farmers in India had planted summer-sown paddy rice on 26.27 million hectares as of August 3, down 4.2% from a year ago. The country is likely to receive below-normal monsoon rains in 2018, a private weather forecaster said on Wednesday. In contrast, heavy rains and floods in rice-growing regions in Vietnam and Thailand are affecting harvests and are likely to impact rice prices. In Thailand, 30 provinces have been affected by seasonal floods in the past three weeks, while nine provinces, including some rice-growing areas, are partially inundated. ―The flood in northeastern regions may raise the domestic price of Jasmine rice, which has been quite strong this year, and could impact export prices in the future,‖ a trader said. Overall demand for Thai rice remained relatively quiet this week, but prices inched up as some exporters were fulfilling old deals.―Many exporters are buying rice this week because a ship from Africa is arriving... These are old deals with markets like Nigeria, Senegal, and Ghana. Prices usually go up when the ship arrives,‖ another Bangkok-based trader said. Thailand‘s benchmark 5% broken rice rose slightly to $390-$395 per tonne this week free on board (FOB) Bangkok, from $385-$393 last week. Meanwhile in Vietnam, rates for 5%broken rice were $395-$400 a tonne, up from $385$395 a tonne a week ago.

―Prolonged rain is slowing down (the) summer-autumn harvest, while demand is picking up,‖ a Ho Chi Minh City-based trader said. ―We are seeing rising demand from new markets, including Cuba, Syria and Iraq... There are also rumours that the Southern Food Corp (or Vinafood II) i s buying rice from farmers for stockpiling,‖ the trader added. In Bangladesh, rice imports in July-August stood at 26,730 tonnes, data showed, after the government imposed a 28%tax on shipments to support its farmers after local production revived. ―We are not striking any new deals for rice as it is no longer profitable given the huge import duty,‖ a trader said. https://www.dhakatribune.com/business/2018/08/10/rice-prices-in-india-hold-steady-low-rainfall-mayhurt-output

Senators propose inflation cures posted August 11, 2018 at 01:10 am by Macon Ramos-Araneta

Senator Francis Pangilinan on Friday said that importing rice and lowering tariffs are short-term solutions to high prices while increasing farmers‘ income is the more effective way in the long term.―When the rice supply is mismanaged, rice prices rise, becoming inflationary, and pulling up the prices of all other agriculture products and other basic commodities,‖ said the former presidential adviser on food security and agricultural modernization. Pangilinan, also president of the Liberal Party, said focusing on farmers‘ incomes also addresses poverty and hunger. ―When rice prices go up, the result is hunger. Especially for impoverished Filipinos, 70 percent of their expenses are spent on food. Of the 70 percent, 30 percent is spent on rice. So when rice prices increase, they don‘t eat three square meals a day,‖ he said. Pangilinan was reacting to the rice tariffication bill in Congress, which seeks to remove the prescribed import ceiling on rice and to open the market to private traders. Initially, lowering the tariff can bring in cheap agricultural products, which could stave off the soaring prices of goods, Pangilinan said. However, he pointed out, the long-term solution is adequate supply and rice self-sufficiency.

48 | w w w . r i c e p l u s m a g a z i n e . b l o g s p o t . c o m mujahid.riceplus@gmail.com

,


―Strategically, lowering the tariffs can bring in cheap agricultural products to address inflation. But in the long run, what you really need to address is greater supply brought about by greater farm productivity. You have to increase your productivity. And increasing productivity is really focusing on farmers‘ incomes,‖ Pangilinan said. He noted that the high prices of goods is a result of many factors, including the Tax Reform for Acceleration and Inclusion Law and limited supply. ―Rice is not really sufficient at this time. And, rice sufficiency is, again, a function of support for your farmers to be able to yield more, produce at less cost and yielding more,‖ he said. Opposition Senator Risa Hontiveros, meanwhile, offered several recommendations that would help the public meet the challenges of slower-than-expected growth and high inflation. Hontiveros said the administration of President Rodrigo Duterte could speed up the implementation of big infrastructure projects under its flagship Build, Build, Build program. ―There must be ‗speed, speed, speed‘ in the government‘s Build, Build, Build program, even as we judiciously scrutinize the loans that were acquired for the said big-ticket infrastructure projects,‖ she said in a statement. The senator added that the hiring of Filipino workers should also be a priority in the project implementation. ―With trillions of pesos worth of infrastructure projects, they can create thousands of direct and indirect jobs,‖ Hontiveros said. The lawmaker also expressed support to government plans to impose tariffs on imported rice. Echoing statements from the country‘s economic managers, Hontiveros said a shift in rice policy from quantitative restrictions to tariffs, along with timely importation to boost stock inventory, would help bring down the price of rice. ―Lowering the price of rice has to be the priority of policy through a shift from quantitative restrictions to moderate tariffs if necessary, but certainly with more timely imports even under the present regime,‖ Hontiveros said. ―This must be done while providing protection to and ensuring the competitiveness of Filipino farmers,‖ she added.
