Good Day !

Hi I am Rachel A. Ondras, a Bachelor’s Degree in Agriculture graduate, who willingly wants to apply any vacant position your Institution has to offer for me that will suit my skills and abilities. I am an experienced graduate with almost one (1) year of experienced and I am also a Certified Licenced Agriculturist.

I wish to bring my knowledge, skills and commitment to excellence to your Institution’s innovative environment. As an Agriculture graduate, majoring in Soil Science, I’ve learnt the basics and also become equipped with the skills to work in laboratory place particularly on determining the nutrient composition of the soils from field preparation up to soil analysis such as its Organic Matter/Carbon content, Phosphorous, Nitrogen and Iron determination.

In addition, for about six (6) months I’ve worked as an Independent Field Technician in a chemical company assigned at my hometown (Abuyog, Leyte). In this role I have had to perform monthly activities such as conducting Farmer’s meeting, visiting Big Land Owners and Dealers. I also conduct field visits to ensure the quality of the products being indorsed. All these task requires focus and determination which I may had executed well.

With that I strongly believed that I have all the qualities you require and can assure you that I possess all the abilities needed for the job and I believe that I would be an able and enthusiastic addition to the firm. In conclusion I want to state that I am very grateful for a chance to prove myself, and look forward on working with your team.

Thank you for taking the time to consider this application and I look forward to hearing from you.

Warm regards,

Hi, Good Evening Pinoy Rice, Ako po ay isang BS Agriculture student Major in Agronomy, gusto ko pong humingi ng idea or posibleng mga concept na makakatulong sa paggawa ko ng mabuting tittle or research about rice for my thesis that can help different issues on the Philippine Rice industry. I hope and I believe you can help me.


Pinoy Rice August 8, 2017

Hello Sir Benjamin, so far po ay madami ang pwedeng thesis sa palay, you may consider ang mga studies related sa coping with climate change. Sorry hndi kasi kami nagbibigay ng specifc na title ng study. Iconsider mo na din ang local rice situation or problems.

Good day po, ask ko po kung ilang porsyeto ang yield loss kapag tinamaan ng tungro virus ang palay kapag nasa reproductive phase na. At papano ang gagawin para dna kumalat


Pinoy Rice August 8, 2017

Hello sir Toby, ang atake po kasi ng tungro ay depende sa klase ng virus na umatake sa palay, maaari po kasi kung nagsama ang Rice tungro baciliform virus at ang Rice tungro spherical virus ay mataas po ang damage, pero kung iisang strain lng ng virus ay hndi po ganun kalala ang damage.So far ay wala pang specific na data kung ilang % ang damage na maibibigay ng tungro sa palay kung vegetative stage umatake.

Pinoy Rice July 28, 2017

Hello Sir Abdulkarim, ang philrice po ay hindi ngrerekomenda ng mga brand names madami po kasi na pwede ninyong pagpilian sa mga agrisupplies, may 2 klase po ng pandamo sa palayan pwedeng gumamit ng mga pre emergent herbicide sa bagong tanim na palay at ang post emergent herbicides naman kung mahigit 1 week ng nakatanim ang palay.
