    try telling that to the farmers who will be affected by the very low price of rice as we import rice from our neighboring countries...

    my father is a farmer from bulacan and rice has never been a problem... ulam lagi ang kulang!... just kidding...

    anyways... when there is a "shortage" of rice on tv and the NFA imports rice... the sum total is a drop in the price of palay and a big loss for farmers who owe money for fertilizers and insecticides... yup... just another day at the farm...

    This seems to me merely collusion between the cartels and a corrupt
    government: look for government to quietly lower rice import duties,
    in the name of better allowing the rice cartel to "relieve the crisis".
    there will be NO move to offer subsidies to boost local rice production,
    nor to halt the senseless conversion of agricultural lands to suburban
    and mixed developments.

    Our Thai brothers and sisters are very dear to me, but to be honest:
    I can't stand Thai "Jasmine" Rice. It sometimes has this clayish background
    aftertaste, and the rice dries out/hardens faster, making dishwashing a
    tougher chore than it needs to be. I've rediscovered Dinorado, which is really
    good when it's good --trick is finding a dealer who will sell you fresh harvest.

    I havent been eating rice since march
    I blame rice for the pinoys nutrition problem
  7. Dinorado is a good kind and agree that the Thai one dries very quickly. I do know that local rice millers especially in the North do have its own Cartel like organization with prices controllable
  8. One of my staff is about to resign from work, and intends to use his lump sum to 'play with the big boys' in rice trading. No amount of persuasion to forget about it could change his mind. "Strike while the iron's hot" daw...

    Hope and pray he's doing the right thing...

    Arakan Valley in cotabato is home to the Dinorado and the Philippine eagle. :supergrin:

    I buy straight from the farmer during the harvest season. but their palay drying technique is wanting. medyo maraming broken grains. pero kahit walang ulam, ayos na yang freshly milled dinorado. medyo maligat (matigas) pero very fragnant.

    Ewan ko lang if i can go there again this harvest season (which is now, BTW). sira pa ang 4x4 ko, and i need to return to manila na tomorrow.
