Online hiring in Philippines declines by 36% YOY in July Your Mindanao-wide Community Newspaper

By BONG D. FABE Contributing Editor

FEWER Filipinos have found employment through electronic recruitment as only hiring activity in the country declined by 36 percent year on year (YOY) in July, according to the Monster Employment Index (MEI) Philippines. MEI data also showed a four percent drop in erecruitment activities in June 2015. The production/manufacturing, automotive and ancillary industry registered the lowest growth YOY at -57%, just behind engineering, construction and real estate at -50 percent.

“It is not surprising that the production and manufacturing sector and engineering and production jobs are still seeing the steepest decline across the Philippines. The industry has been in turmoil for the past one to two years as it has faced numerous constraints, meaning job activity has also been heavily affected,” said Sanjay Modi, managing director of for India, Middle East, Southeast Asia and Hong Kong. The education sector, which has been contracting since March 2015, continued its decline at 6% YOY in July. Information technology, telecom and Internet


service providers saw a 7% decrease. “This slowdown in erecruitment activity is highlighted by the fact that only one industry group and one occupation group out of all monitored by the MEI registered any positive growth between July 2014 and July 2015,” said. Finance and accounts decreased by 12%; and software, hardware, and telecom fell by 18%. M o n s t e r. c o m d a t a showed that only the business-process outsourcing/ information-technology enabled service (BPO/ITES) sector showed an increase in online hiring activities yearon-year at 9 percent in July

2015, which represented a one percentage point growth from June 2015. “The BPO/ITES sector in the Philippines continues to attract more talent, as new call centers continue to open up across the country. The education sector is also seeing a slow increase in activity, as the government attempts to improve its health care and education system, with plans to hire more public-school teachers and health workers in the next couple of years,” Modi said. In terms of occupation, the only job to register positive growth is customer service, which registered an 18% YOY hike, an eightpercentage points increase from June 2015. Modi, however, said that “while overall online hiring activities in the region are looking bleak, the figures

could pick up in the coming months, particularly among Finance & Accounts roles.” “Even with the introduction of new banking technologies which serve to facilitate operations within the industry, there will still be a demand for various roles to fill existing workplace gaps,” he added. The MEI Philippines is a monthly gauge of onlinejob posting activity, based on a real-time review of millions of employer job opportunities culled from a large representative selection of career web sites and online-job listings across the Philippines. The index does not reflect the trend of any one advertiser or source, but is an aggregate measure of the change in job listings across the industry. Launched in May 2015, with data collected since

Prices of corn in drop

KORONADAL City––Agriculture officials in South Cotabato are taking measures to cushion the impact of low buying price of corn products on farmers. The law of supply and demand was seen as the reason in the slump of corn prices, according to Justina Navarette, provincial agriculture officer. Navarette said corn production in the province has increased tremendously the past harvest season, causing the price of the commodity to drop. She said the most affected town in the drop of buying price of corn grains was Banga, known as the corn capital of South Cotabato. Compounding the problem was the refusal of some traders to purchase the farmers’ produce due See corn, page A11 NOTICE Notice is hereby given that parcel of Land identified as Lot No. 1354, embraced by Oct No. 4264, covered under Tax Declaration No. 03000005137, w/ an area of 413 Sq.

Explain endorsement on Marcos BBL version, Guingona, Koko told Bukidnon • Camiguin • Lanao del Norte • Lanao del Sur • Misamis Occidental • Misamis Oriental

By BONG D. FABE Contributing Editor

CAGAYAN de Oro City–– Disappointed and disheartened but still hopeful for a miracle, religious leaders and peace advocates have urged the two Mindanawon senators to explain their endorsement of the Senate version of the Bangsamoro Basic Law (BBL) which is deemed “less than” what has been granted to the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao (ARMM) and is patently inconsistent with the Comprehensive Agreement on the Bangsamoro (CAB). “If Senator TG Guingona and Senator Koko Pimentel truly feel the pulse of the peoples of Mindanao, they should have not signed the Marcos committee report. Guingona and Pimentel should explain to the peoples of Mindanao why they signed Marcos’

committee report,” said Professor Moner Bajunaid during the recent Religious Leaders-Legislators Meeting at the Archbishop Patrick Cronin Hall. Sen. Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr., son and namesake of the dictator who ousted through a bloodless revolution in 1986, submitted on August 10 his committee’s report that formed the Senate’s version of the BBL. Guingona, son and namesake of former Vice President Teofisto “Tito” Guingona Jr., and Pimentel, son and namesake of former Sen. Aquilino “Nene” Pimentel Jr., both endorsed Marcos’ version of the BBL. Marcos’s BBL amended 80 percent of the original BBL drafted by the Bangsamoro Transition Commission (BTC) and PLEASE EXPLAIN. Professor Moner Bajunaid, former member of the MILF peace panel, co-convenor of the reviewed by the legal team Philippine Center for Islam and Democracy (PCID) and member of the Citizens Peace Council urges Sens.

do so is to arm ourselves with information. Here’s some common misconceptions from SAVE – Suicide Awareness Voices of Education: “People who talk about suicide won’t really do it.” Not True. Almost everyone who commits or attempts suicide has given some clue or warning. Do not ignore suicide threats. Statements like “you’ll be sorry when I’m dead,” “I can’t see any way out,” -- no matter how casually or jokingly said, may indicate serious suicidal feelings. “Anyone who tries to kill him/herself must be crazy.”

Camacho had a choice of sending the Mexican expeditionary force to Italy to fight alongside a Brazilian contingent. But Camacho opted to send his troops to the Philippines. There, Camacho said, the unit could aid “the liberation of a people for whom it (is) felt a continuity of idiom, history and traditions.” The Mexican expeditionary force consisted of 300 officers and enlisted men from all branches of the military, including 38 pilots. The force was commanded by Colonel Antonio Cardenas Rodriguez. Before leaving for the Philippines, the pilots trained in Victoria, Texas and later in Pocatello, Idaho where they transitioned to Curtis P-40 Warhawks and P-47D Thunderbolts,

For most people, suicide is not an option. They have never experienced sadness’ death grip. Unfortunately for countless others, this is not the case. Let’s light a candle on September 10 at 8:00 PM in commemoration of the World Suicide Prevention Day. Let us remember those who gave up on life, people who may not have really want to die, but couldn’t find any other way to stop the pain. People often believe that suicide is something that only happens in the developed world. Unfortunately, the truth is, it is a global health problem that kills conservatively 800,000 people all over the world. The National Statistics Office reports that even in the Philippines, suicide is on the rise. If you’re like me, you probably know someone who has taken their own lives or have loved ones who have done so. How do we prevent something as gut-wrenching as suicide then? Perhaps the best way to

Not True. Most suicidal people are not psychotic or insane. They may be upset, grief-stricken, depressed or despairing. Extreme distress and emotional pain are always signs of mental illness but are not signs of psychosis. “If a person is determined to kill him/herself, nothing is going to stop him/her.” Not True. Even the most severely depressed person has mixed feelings about death, and most waiver until the very last moment between wanting to live and wanting to end their pain. Most suicidal people do not want to die; they want the pain to stop. The impulse to end it all, however overpowering, does not last forever. “People who commit suicide are people who were unwilling to seek help.” Not True. Studies of adult suicide victims have shown that more than half had sought medical help within six months before their deaths and a majority had seen a medical professional within 1 month of

their death. “Talking about suicide may give someone the idea.” Not True. You don’t give a suicidal person ideas by talking about suicide. The opposite is true -- bringing up the subject of suicide and discussing it openly is one of the most helpful things you can do. If you or your loved one is at the brink of despair to the point where suicide becomes an option, SEEK PROFESSIONAL HELP IMMEDIATELY. In the meantime, call The Natasha Goulbourn Foundation’s Suicide Hotline at 0917558-HOPE (4673). You may also use their toll-free number for all Globe and TM subscribers, at 2919.

Ignacio Bunye respectively. On arriving in the Philippines on May 1, 1945, the Mexican expeditionary force was assigned to an air field in Porac, Pampanga where they were attached to the US Air Force 58th Fighter Group. From Porac, the Mexicans (who have nicknamed themselves Aztec Eagles), flew combat sorties to aid ground troops fighting in the Marikina watershed and later, in Bessang Pass. In and around Bessang Pass, close air support proved crucial. It was especially difficult for the Aztec Eagles as they had to bomb and strafe hard-to-see Japanese positions which were very close to friendly forces.

Fortun backs pilgrimage to Butuan’s Golden Tara By PAT SAMONTE Caraga Regional Editor

ESPERANZA, Agusan del Sur--The Arya Tara Rigpa Rime Contemplative Dharma Community, a Buddhist group led by Lama Yeshe Lundhrup, has found support from Rep. Lawrence Lemuel Fortun to its pilgrimage to Butuan’s Golden Tara in Esperanza town here. True to his advocacy of promoting Butuan’s rich history and cultural heritage, the Agusan del Norte First District congressman gave his thumbs up to the group’s plan of retracing the roots of Vajrayana Buddhism in the Philippines. Fortun’s proposed HB No. 4823 declaring Butuan City as heritage tourism zone was taken up last week by the House Committee on Tourism. We left Butuan City August 30, 2015 at 9 am and reached Barangay Cubo, Esperanza here at around 11:45 am. Barangay Captain Sotero Bignay welcomed the Buddhist group at the village hall. After signing the attendance book, we were escorted by the village head to the Golden Tara marker almost a kilometer away. An inscription at the concrete marker says the Golden Tara was found in 1917. A replica of the Golden Tara is covered by a transparent glass at the side of the marker. At 15 minutes past noon,Lama Yeshe started the Buddhist ritual on an altarlike table filled with fruits fronting the Golden Tara marker with village officials and residents standing. For an hour, Lama Yeshe chanted and spoke in what I thought to be Sanskrit. At the end of the ceremony, the Buddhist group members offered the fruits on the ritual table while the barangay staff

distributed “palagsing”, a native food and soft drinks to the participants. We left the site at around 1:30 pm and lunched at a restaurant in Bayugan City. The Golden Tara and the Balanghai Boat are the two icons of Butuan history. Also known as the Golden Image of Agusan and Icon of a Storied Past (Butuan’s pre-colonial times), the Golden Tara is a gold figurine of a “Tara” or escort goddess from the Buddhist Pantheon). It was found in July, 1917 by Bilay Campos, a Manobo native, along the Wawa River bank near Esperanza after a storm. The image was passed on to Blas Baclayon, the deputy governor of the province at that time. It was later acquired by the Agusan Coconut Company. In 1918, Prof. Henry Otley Beyer, the Father of Philippine Archeology, tried but failed to convince the government to buy the image for the National Museum due to lack of funds.

Wood brought the image from the company to the 1920 Manila Exposition where it created a buzz. It was subsequently sold to the Americans who brought it to the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago in 1922. It is now housed in the museum’s Grainger Hall of Gems. The Golden Tara is cast in 21-karat gold, weighs nearly four pounds and measures around eight inches in height. The image is a Goddess of the Buddhist Pantheon in the Mahayana group. It is related to the concept of a female Boddhisatve and at the same time the counterpart of the Hindu Goddess Sakti as a Tara of wife of a Buddhist God.

Teachers Role among the Youth In Nation Building By Jenefeir B. Denque-Teachers III Paniangan Elementary School

The youth of today’s generation carry the same responsibility as the youth of yesteryears. In their shoulder lie the responsibilities in building better nation, in making the society a better place in which to live, in improving the community they serve. Our National Hero, Dr. Jose P. Rizal said that, “The Youth is the hope of our fatherland”. This signifies that the Teachers play a significant role in the formal education process of learners. They touch the lives of the pupils in different ways either inside or outside the classrooms. In fact, in school, teachers are” in the place of a parent” or “instead of a parent,” loco parentis in Latin word. This means that teachers become children’s second parents. It is important that parents

should show discretion in choosing the school to where their children spend most of their developmental years. Moreover, teachers serve as portraitures that display expression personality and mood. They are subjects children look at with gaze of interest. Teachers prove effective in motivating pupils to succeed in their studies. They show care and concern, inspire them in their studies. They show unconditional love and make classroom full of love. They develop positive values that are essential for life. Indeed, Henry Brooks Adams, an American journalist, historian, academic, and novelist, says, “Teachers affects eternity; he can never where his influence stops.”

No Lakas-NUCD offer to Duterte but FVR offers Rizal as beacon of governance By Lilian C. Mellejor of PNA

DAVAO City––Mayor Rodrigo Duterte dismissed speculations he discussed wit h for mer president Fidel Ramos, who heads the Lakas/National Union of Christian Democrats/ Christian/Muslim Demo c r at s ( L a k a s / N U C D / CMD), matters on his presidential bid in 2016 during their meeting in Makati last week. Duterte however admitted Ramos offered him the principles of national hero, Jose Rizal, as his guiding light if he becomes president. Ramos said Duterte is a follower of Rizal. “We did not discuss about politics, wala pud siya naghisgot kinsa iyang suportahan. Wala pud ko nangutana (..he did say who he would support. I

also did not ask),” Duterte said during his Sunday television program Gikan sa Masa Para sa Masa over ABS CBN. This, as Duterte admitted a meeting with Ramos took place in the former president’s office in Makati that was also attended by former press secretary Jesus Dureza, former presidential adviser for Mindanao Paul D om i ng u e z and ot he r p ol it i c a l p e rs ona l it i e s from Davao. Duterte recalled he was on his way to the airport when he thought of dropping by R amos’ office. He said they discussed many things but nothing on politics. He said Ramos gave him books he has written such as on governance and a book on Rizal. “Istor ya l ang wa l ay politika. Layo pa man –

layo ra sa tinuod kay dili g yud ko modagan (We just talked but nothing political. It’s (elections) still far off…it’s far off from the truth because I am not really running),” Duterte said in jest, adding that shortly before he left Ramos told him: “If you happen to make it let Rizal be the guiding light of your governance”. His meeting with Ramos had sparked speculat ions t he mayor was seeking advice from the former president. It was not their first meeting. In his previous visit here, Duterte even get advice from Ramos such as to get used to holding or attending state gatherings and visit. Up to this day, Duterte did not openly make a decision on whether to run or not although during a big rally here he said he

asked supporters to give him more time to talk to his family. He has cited family opposition, health, age and finances as major reasons why he is not joining the presidential race in the May 2016 elections. On family, Duterte’s daughter, former mayor Sara Duterte, has already stated that he has strongly opposed to his father’s presidential bid. She said she only suggested if possible not consider it because of health and age. According to the mayor, his youngest son, Sebastian, is also opposing a presidential plan. He even quoted telling him in vernacular: “Can you not see yourself walking with an almost arch body”? Duterte however said his son, Vice Mayor Paolo Duterte is supporting his presidential bid.

IT studes develop ‘SoilMate’ Agriculturists can soon analyse soil properties through their mobile phones. Agrihackathon-PhilRice

Information Technology students from the Central Luzon State University (CLSU) developed “SoilMate,” a mobile application that can show soil properties, color groups, and productivity. The app has a Geographic Positioning System or GPS feature that can locate the origin of the soil. Starting off within the provinces in Central Luzon, it is expected to guide agriculturists, farmers and researchers to identify the soil series in a specific location through simple steps. Janndel Rosario, Gengee Madarang, and Ramon Rama of CLSU developed the app under the Enclosed

Field Category aimed at creating or enhancing an app from PhilRice. The app was based on the guidebook Simplified Keys to Soil Series produced by the Institute. SoilMate was the grand winner in the 2nd AgriHackathon, an application development competition, organized by the Information Systems Division (ISD) of PhilRice. Once fully developed, users can also use the app to identify soil properties and soil management recommendations. The developers acknowledged that this kind of app is highly technical and needs crowdsourcing. But

PhilRice recommends El Niño-ready varieties


O help the farmers cope with and mitigate the extreme impacts of El Niño, Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) has encouraged farmers to plant drought-tolerant varieties and use El Niño-ready technologies on rice production. In its latest advisory, the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Service Administration (Pagasa) said the drought and dry spell will even continue until next year. The Pagasa defined drought as three consecutive months of way below normal (>60% reduction from average) or five consecutive

See studes, page A11

For irrigated lowland, farmers may consider planting several early-maturing varieties such as PSB Rc10 (Pagsanjan), NSIC Rc130 (Tubigan 3) and NSIC Rc152 (Tubigan 10). Pagsanjan matures in 106 days with a maximum yield of 7.5t/ha. Tubigan 3 matures in 108 days with a maximum yield of 7.6t/ha while Tubigan 10 matures in 109 days with a maximum yield of 8.7t/ha. Farmers may also plant NSIC Rc134 (Tubigan 4), an early-maturing variety (107 days) with a maximum yield of 9.8t/ha and NSIC Rc160 (Tubigan 14) also an early-maturing variety (107 days) with a maximum yield


of 8.2t/ha. For rainfed lowland, farmers may choose from NSIC Rc192 (Sahod Ulan 1), PSB Rc14 (Rio Grande), and PSB Rc68 (Sacobia). Sahod Ulan 1 matures in 106 days with a maximum yield of 5.5t/ha. Rio Grande matures in 110 days with a maximum yield of 6.1t/ ha. Sacobia matures in 116 days with a maximum yield of 4.4t/ha. These varieties are also known for their drought-tolerant properties preferable in areas where El Niño is expected to hit worst. Drought-tolerant varieties for the uplands include PSB Rc80 (Pasig), PSB

Rc9 (Apo), and NSIC Rc23 (Katihan 1). Pasig can yield up to 8.7t/ha and matures in 112 days. Apo matures in 119 days with a maximum yield of 5.6 t/ha while Katihan 1 matures in 108 days with a maximum yield of 7.6t/ha. Farmers can also use water-saving technologies such as controlled irrigation or alternate wetting and drying (AWD), aerobic rice, drip irrigation, and reduced tillage technology. Meanwhile, PhilRice continues to roll-out information materials on El Niño. Said communication resources are available for download from the insti-

tute’s website (www.philrice. Farmers can also contact the PhilRice Text Center (0920-911-1398) should they want to know more about El Niño and the technologies that they can use to reduce the losses brought about by the phenomenon. Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) is a government corporate entity attached to the Department of Agriculture created through Executive Order 1061 on 5 November 1985 (as amended) to help develop highyielding and cost-reducing technologies so farmers can produce enough rice for all Filipinos.

New measure to allow gas power plants to use diesel as alternative fuel THE House of Representatives has approved on second reading a bill allowing natural gas power plants to use diesel as alternate fuel when there is an existing or imminent shortage of electricity. House Bill 5587 amends Paragraph 5.3, Section 5 of Republic Act 9367 or the Biofuels Act of 2006, which restricts natural gas power generating plants from using pure or straight-run diesel. Earlier in March, the Malampaya natural gas power plant in Palawan had to undergo a month-long maintenance work. During the shutdown, Malampaya Multiple Tasks.

Arcilla Lords it over “PJ” Tierro at the Oro invitational game By Cesar Gorillo Contributor

In what was considered as the highlight of the Cagayan de Oro Tennis Open on August 28-31, 2015, Johnny Arcilla, the country’s top tennister for the last ten years and Patrick John “PJ” Tierro, the current country’s number one in the Philippine Tennis Association (PHILTA) rankings protagonist 6-4, 4-6 and 10-7 in a rare encounter that made thousands of Oro tennis enthusiasts gasping for breath for their breath taking shots never seen locally in years at the Golden Friendship Tennis Club (GFTC) grounds near the San Agustin Cathedral, The encounter was part of the city’s fiesta celebration as the contribution of the officers and members of the GFTC to showcase the country’s tennis best for the benefit of tennisters from all over Visayas and Mindanao who came over to Cagayan de Oro City just to witness the rare encounter of what the country’s tennis superstar can offer. Arcilla’s consistency was evident from the first set when he continuously returned PJ Tierro’s booming serves which could hit the most difficult corners of the court. Tierro answered with lightning returns that had Johnny Arcilla racing to the corners of the court to retrieve Tierro’s seemingly impossible backhands. Ohhs and ahhs could be heard as the spectators saw for the first time how these PBAs of tennis wowed them no end. But Tierro, still young at 28, avenged his loss in the first set and pestered Arcilla, already 34, with down the line backhands that travelled like huge round bullets fired from an armalite and made it 6-5. They converted the deciding set into a supper tie straight 1-10. Then Arcilla, a native of Butuan City but based now in Manila mustering all his skills that made him at the top for ten years, pestered Tierro, a Philam at 5’9”

represents virtuous and enlightened action. Her name is derived from the Sanskrit “tri” or “to cross” which implies her power to help all sentient beings cross the ocean of existence and suffering. “The Golden Tara represents the divine feminine energy, which transcends religions. It is found in Buddhism and in Christianity as well, through Mary,” he added. This divine feministic energy remains crucial today at a time that “domination of the patriarchal energy, manifested in the prejudice against women, against other genders, puts down other genders, puts masculine above other energies,” Lama Yeshe emphasized. Lama Yeshe Lhundrup is the first Filipino ordained in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Born as Virgilio Antonio, he was ordained by the 16th Karmapa, Rangjung Rigpe Dorje, and studied under the great masters of Tibetan Buddhism and Bon tradition. The Arya Tara Rigpa Rime Contemplative Dharma Community is founded on the Indo-Tibetan Tara tantric tradition. Led by Lama Yeshe, the Community members in the Golden Tara pilgrimage included Chayie Maligalig, Bong dela Torre, Olive Balatan, Rey Bobis, John Paul Rodrigo and Rohini Bobis.

the energy supply from power plants like these three,” Rep. Reynaldo V. Umali, chairman of the Committee on Energy and principal author of the bill, said. To prevent a power outage, especially during periods of natural gas shortages, natural gas power plants in the country should be allowed to run on diesel fuel, Umali added. “To achieve this objective, an amendment to Section 5 of RA 9367 that would exempt the Ilijan power plant and other similarly situated power generation plants in the country from compliance with the minimum biodiesel blend prescribed therein is needed,” Umali said. The bill also authorizes the President of the Philippines, upon the recommendation of the Secretary of the Department of Energy, to determine when there is an existing or imminent shortage of electricity as to exempt natural gas power generating plants from the requirements of Paragraph 5.3, Section 5 of RA 9367.

had earlier said that Marcos’ BBL or Senate Bill 2894 is “50 percent bad.” “The BBL is a legal and political document that addresses a political issue of national concern,” said Bajunaid, a former member of the MILF peace panel. Bajunaid, co-convenor of the Philippine Center for Islam and Democracy (PCID) and member of the Citizens Peace Council the President formed to study the BBL, said that Guingona’s and Pimentel’s signatures on Marcos’ version of the BBL is very disheartening and disappointing. “One can never understand the BBL if one does not understand the peace process and/or the history of Mindanao,” he said. “Guingona [and Pimentel] should push the Mindanao agenda for peace, [themselves being Mindanawons. Their] signature[s] of Marcos’ committee report show that [they do] not understand the so-called Mindanao conflict,” stressed lawyer Mary Ann Arnado, chair-emeritus of the Mindanao Peoples Caucus (MPC). Archbishop Antonio J. Ledesma, S.J., D.D., who convened the Religious Leaders-Legislators Meeting to discuss the BBL and

strategize how to go forward pushing for the passage of the BBL faithful to the CAB, called legislators in both Houses of Congress to restore the originals provisions of the BBL that are consistent with the CAB. “The present BBL [in both the House of Representatives and Senate] has so many cavities that needs to be filled up to make it a true social justice legislation. The peoples of Mindanao want a meaningful BBL,” he said. Ledesma, who is also a member of the Citizens Peace Council, said that “a support for a meaningful BBL is a support for the Mindanao peace process.” According to the participants to the Meeting, a meaningful BBL is one that addresses the longing for genuine self-governance of the Bangsamoro and embodies the political agreements of the MILF and government which are compiled in the CAB. Ledesma warned of a rise of Bangsamoro extremism like the ISIS in case a meaningful BBL fails to pass especially since there is now a growing number of young Moros who are entertaining political thoughts that have shades of extremism. “A failed BBL will favor the growth of extremism/ fundamentalism/terrorism in Mindanao. It will not help solve the conflict,” he said. (Bong D. Fabe)

Macala confirmed that some of the perpetrators are from Manila who used local contacts in their mission to silence Maestrado. But Macala refused to reveal the identity of one of the suspect so as not to disrupt their manhunt operation against him and the three others. Macala said the witnesses from the Iligan store where the motorcycle was bought positively identified the suspect who boarded the four-wheel vehicle identified with the other suspects. Maestrado was shot several times by four still unidentified gunmen while talking to the owner of a shopping center along Washington Street. Maestrado was rushed to the Medina Hospital where he later died. Parojinog has extended financial support to the family of Maestrado.

to voluminous supplies. According to Navarette, the provincial agriculture office will negotiate with Biotech Farms to prioritize corn products from the province. She explained that the provincial government is mulling assistance to corn

farmers because no government agency attends to them when the price of their primary products drops due to supply and demand. For palay farmers, the National Food Authority (NFA) procures palay at a higher price when palay prices in the market drop. South Cotabato, a part of Region 12, has an annual corn production of 435,981 metric tons, followed by North Cotabato with 385,428; Sultan Kudarat, 234,393; and Sarangani, 145,479, according to Zaldy Boloron, DA-12 corn program coordinator. In his 130-page “Regional Corn Roadmap CY (Calendar Year) 2012 to 2017” presentation, Boloron said Region 12 has an annual production of 1.20 million MT the previous year. Boloron cited the strong corn sector performance to the wide area suitable for corn production, availability of high quality seeds and access to technology. Region 12 has 429,319 hectares of corn fields. The region is the third biggest producer of corn in the country. (PNA)
