El Nino effects are being lessened by the following actions: DA

According to a Department of Agriculture (DA) representative, the government has implemented the required safeguards to lessen the potential impact of an impending El Nino phenomenon on rice output.

Agriculture Undersecretary Leocadio Sebastian stated during a press conference at Malacaang that the DA has already mapped out the areas where the dry spell may have a favorable or negative impact on.

He added that the DA has devised measures expressly for the regions that El Nino may adversely affect.

“The Department of Agriculture is getting ready for this,” I said. “I’ve dealt with multiple El Ninos and discovered ways to deal with them. According to Sebastian, who was speaking to the media, El Nino has both beneficial and negative impacts.

“Only the areas that will be negatively impacted have we planned mitigation measures, so doon lang kami gumawa ng mga (those are the only locations that have been prepared). However, El Nino’s positive effect is good solar radiation, which would improve yield, he continued.

Sebastian noted that the DA might focus on these areas and optimize its involvement to maximize output because parts of the Philippines produce very high palay yields even during El Nino.

So, he continued, “Hopefully, we can balance out the negative and positive so that if we are successful, we may gain from those regions where El Nino would have a favorable impact.

The Philippines is projected to experience the effects of the El Nino phenomena in the fourth quarter of this year or the first quarter of 2024, according to President Ferdinand R. Marcos Jr.’s directive last month.

The President also directed multiple agencies to develop a public awareness campaign for water and energy conservation and to ensure “protocol-based and scientific” long-term solutions to the looming issue.

The probability of El Nino occurring is 80% for June, July, and August and 86 % for November, December, and January, according to the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA). However, the nation may experience heavy rainfall events before its impact.
