PALAY SEED SUBSIDY DISTRIBUTION IN SAN MARIANO, ISABELA: AN ASSESSMENT

Dr. Ruby B. Dimas, Dr. Clarinda C. Galiza.

Abstract
The research was conducted July to September 2010 at San Mariano Isabela. Data were analyzed
using parametric and non-parametric statistics which were the bases of describing the different parameters observed
in the research. The salient findings are as follows: seed growers and rice farmers are in their late 40ís. The seed
growers are all married and most of them have finished college education. Majority of them are employed in either
the government or private institutions. All of them have attended trainings on seed production sponsored by either
DA local or DA national. They have attained 9 years experience as seed growers and an average yield of 110 cav/ha.
The seed growers have a mean rice field ownership of 8.8 hectares. It was found out that they were assessed in
different ways of their application as seed growers. This is an indication that the program is not strict in the
assessment of farmers in their application to become seed growers. Among the requirements as a seed grower,
attendance to training was the most difficult criterion to satisfy. Farmers could hardly attend seminars and trainings
called for by the program. These seed growers experienced non-strict inspection of their seeds. The manner in which
seeds are allocated to the seed grower/ suppliers seem to be a problem as some of them claimed that there is
favoritism. The seed growers claimed to benefit from being a seed grower. Among the benefits they gain are the
assurances of market for their products which command a higher price. The rice farmers in San Mariano are
dominated by Ilocanos. Those farmers who are recipients of the program had been enjoying the benefits for 2 to 3
years. Few of the farmers owned hand tractor, thresher and drying pavement. They claimed to have been visited at
least once by the DA technician during the cropping season. They claimed to have been updated by the DA
Technician on new technologies in rice farming but they still practice the waray system of planting. Almost 100% of
them used the PSBRC 82 as planting material. The rice Farmers of San Mariano attain low yield from 79 to 85
cavans per hectare. Despite this low production, they still assess the program to be effective. The age of the rice
farmers affects their perceptions on the effectiveness of the program especially on master listing, seed distribution
and monitoring.
