‘Tongro’ virus infestation
The Negros Oriental Provincial Agriculture Office is sending a team of technicians to La Libertad town, to check on the reported infestation of tongro virus in certain rice fields in the municipality.
Cesar Tejedor, president of the Solonggon, Manghulyawon Irrigators Association, reported to provincial agriculturist Gregorio Paltinca, during the recent irrigators evaluation conference that members of the association had suffered considerable losses in yield because of what they believe to be tongro virus infestation.
They claimed that the certified seeds given to them were defective, and were vulnerable to the virus. They admitted that some of them lack know-how on what to do when the tongro virus attacks their rice fields.
