S
tories that nurture people often help alleviate povertyor bolster their will to struggle for progress.Science culture is swiftly changing the lives of marginal farmerswho depend on rice farming for livelihood. PhilRice has followed thepath of this research-based culture through the years. Because of newfarming approaches, farmers are treading this path by opting for newtechnologies and ideas over unsustainable farming practices.Farmers are extraordinary community leaders. Through progressive farming practices, theylift the economic standards of the countryside. Their inuence is synonymous to publicgood, and their ability to control the levers of development is matched by their belief thatviable and sustainable rice production istheir greatest contribution to society. That is why PhilRice holds farmers –our valued allies – in high esteem.Farmers in selected sites in Centraland Northern Luzon, for example,are now following the approachesunder the Integrated Pest ManagementCollaborative Research Support Program (IPM CRSP)set up by the United States Agency for InternationalDevelopment (USAID) as the path toward agricultural progress. The IPM CRSP has anencompassing scope; it covers agriculture, trade, environment, and gender equity. In not a fewplaces where it works, the program promotes production options in a manner we have rarelyseen before.IPM helps reduce agricultural losses owing to pests (insects, weeds, vertebrates, diseases),damage to national ecosystems, and pollution and contamination of food and water supplies. Through IPM, crop losses and pesticide use are reduced, income is increased, and technologicalcapabilities are improved.PhilRice lauds these farmers whose dedication and passion to improve their lot have resultednot only in higher productivity but also accomplishments that nurture people’s lives and pride. Their eorts, not in dribs and drabs, generate compound interest that multiply throughdecades. Their success stories generate contributions that invite inspiration and at times awewhenever we see them.
