LOOK: NIA IV-A joins the launching of the PhilRice BIDA RiceBIS Program in Calauan, Laguna which aims to help farmers to increase their income by selling their products directly to institutional buyers.

Laguna Irrigators Associations (IAs) from Mayor RIS, Romelo-Pinait CIS, Wawa PCIS, Makatad CIS, and Lamao-Lati CIS are set to join the RiceBis Community in Siniloan, Laguna. The IAs were clustered under Pangkalahatang Samahan ng Magsasaka ng Siniloan Laguna or  PASAMASI.

On the other hand, joining the RiceBis Community in Quezon are Manggalang Tulo-Tulo IA, Ibabang Manggalang IA, and Manggalang Birhenan IA which were clustered into Manggalang Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Cooperative or MARBENCO.

The Bida RiceBis 2.0 program desires an outcome of at least a 50% increase in the income of farmers/IAs by the year 2028. L. Javan
