Occidental Mindoro Vice Gov. Peter Alfaro looks into reported drop of palay prices

0

Occidental Mindoro Vice Gov. Peter Alfaro has promised farmers that he would get to the bottom of social media claims that the buying price of palay has gone down to P10 per kilo.

In a Facebook post, Alfaro said he asked the provincial agriculturist to validate these claims as these could could panic among the farmers.

This is especially important as the harvest for the wet season is about to commence, he said.

The claims appeared to be without basis after verification, he said.

But he would continue to look into this matter, he added.

The farmers need assurance!

“I requested our Provincial Agriculturist to validate report posted in some social media platforms few days ago that the buying price of palay went down to Ten Pesos per kilo since it may cause panic among our farmers with the onset of harvest for wet season. We verified and appeared it is without basis. Rest assured we will look into this concern,” Alfaro posted.
