We might be experiencing rainy days now and then but don’t be deceived, the Department of Agriculture announced.

Warning of hot and rainless days in the months ahead, the DA is giving out P5,000 to each of the 32,000 rice farmers in Negros Oriental. That’s a package of over P161 million.

And throughout Central Visayas, the DA is giving out some P600 million to rice farmers.

That’s how serious this El Nino phenomenon is, which we don’t even realize is just a few months away.

It’s actually happening now. The government weather station Pag-Asa has revealed that the amount of rain that has fallen in Dumaguete and Negros Oriental this year is but a fraction of the amount of rainfall compared to the 40-year average.

Because of this certainty, those of us who have small parcels of land, such as a front or back yard, can take part in food production, planting especially food items that we have to import, like fruits, onions and garlic, to name a few. 

And there’s no way around the El Nino phenomenon. We who are in its path have to adapt to a lifestyle that will enable us to weather it.
