crop-establishment-imgKEY CHECK 3:
Practiced synchronous planting
after a rest period.

Synchronous planting after a rest period enables efficient use of irrigation water and avoids overlapping incidences of insect and disease populations, thereby preventing yield loss.

e.g. occurrence of tungro disease caused by GLH.

If farmers in an area plant synchronously, crops can be harvested almost simultaneously, leaving no food source for insect pests to survive on and multiply.
 

KEY CHECK 4: Crop Establishment – Sufficient number of healthy seedlings

 

ASSESSMENT OF KEY CHECK

  • Allowed the field to rest for at least 30 days after harvest before the next cropping season begins.
  • Planted within 14 days before or 14 days after the regular planting schedule in the irrigation service area or applicable vicinity.

RECOMMENDATIONS TO ACHIEVE KEY CHECK

1. After harvesting, allow the field to rest. Do not plant the area with rice for at least 30 days. Benefits of allowing the rest period:

  • It breaks the insect pest cycle. Most insect pests have an average life cycle of 30 days. During the rest period, they will have no place to stay and most of them will starve to death.
  • It destroys disease host and reduces inoculum in the field. By leaving the field idle, the source of diseases that developed during the previous cropping season will die before the start of the next season.
  • It allows good decomposition of the rice straw and/or organic materials that can serve as fertilizer.

2. Follow the local planting calendar to make full use of irrigation water within the community. Practice synchronous planting at least within the applicable vicinity (e.g. turnout, division, barangay).
