Prolonged rainfall during La Niña, can proliferate destructive grain-sucking rice-bugs (liptocorisa) which can be abundant and can attack any time, be vigilant and always inspect your rice fields and ask local agriculturist for advice if there are any. Continuous wet weather condition brought by La Niña, promotes fungal development and can cause damage to stored farm products, reduce the quality, viability and market price of the grains. Thus, it is advised to keep barns and crop storage rooms to be in good, dry, well ventilated condition. During La Niña, choose flood resistant rice varieties which are suitable in your farm or ask the advice and expertise of your local agriculturist.
