The CLSU Extension Team on Special Rice Project led by Mr. Armando C. Lagasca conducted a coordination meeting with the Municipal Agriculturist (MA) of Bongabon, Nueva Ecija, Mr. Jayson L. Leonardo, on September 24, 2020, regarding the extension project funded by the Department of Agriculture-Regional Field Office III (DA-RFO III) entitled “Technology Promotion and Utilization of Special Rice in Selected Town of Nueva Ecija." The team briefly discussed the objectives of the project and the roles and responsibilities of collaborating parties. The MA immediately identified two cooperators who will establish two demonstration sites (one from each cooperator) with an area of 2,000 square meters each site for the production of special rice.

The project aims to increase farmers’ income through the provision of necessary support services up to marketing. As a component of the project, the cooperators will receive farm inputs such as special rice seeds, organic and commercial fertilizers, and pesticides for free.

Same activities were done to other covered areas such as Carranglan, Llanera, Sto. Domingo, and Talavera.
