Agri-10 caps off the NRAM celebration with the conduct of an Agri Trivia.


CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – To officially conclude the celebration of the National Rice Awareness Month (NRAM), the Department of Agriculture – Regional Field Office 10 (DA-10) helmed by Director Carlene C. Collado, through the Rice Program and the Regional Agriculture and Fisheries Information Section (RAFIS) conducted an Agri Trivia on November 28, 2023, at the agency compound.

Dubbed as the ‘Grain Brain’, the activity was participated by the different divisions of DA-10 with questions revolving on rice and other related things through different sets, namely: Question and Answer, Visual, Audio, and Audio-Visual.

In his message, DA-10 Executive Assistant III Joel R. Rudinas, emphasized that activities like these are apt for a technical agency, such as DA, especially that it is dealing with rice as a commodity.

“Take this as an opportunity to hone our knowledge about rice while having fun. This is a great time for us to learn more about this commodity.” Rudinas added.

Emerging victorious are the Integrated Laboratory Division, Regulatory Division, and the Field Operations Division, as the champion, first runner-up, and second runner-up, respectively.

Winning divisions earned plaques of recognition and cash prizes, while the rest of the teams have also received consolation prizes.

NRAM is celebrated every November of the year, following Proclamation No. 524, Series of 2004. With “Be RICEponsible” as the battlecry for six years, the movement aims to help the country in its bid for rice sufficiency and strengthened support for local farmers by avoiding rice wastage and providing healthier staple food options for Filipino farmers and consumers alike.# (CRS)
