Abstract:

This paper discussed the impact of rice tariffication law in selected farmers in a certain barangay in Nueva Ecija, Philippines. The descriptive method of research was utilized and the questionnaire served as the instrument for collecting data. Findings showed that the initial impact of the law that had already experienced by the selected farmers was the declining farm gate prices of “palay”. This situation affected their income and livelihood. Despite this problem, most of the farmers responded that they would continue in rice farming because this is the only way they know how to earn a living. As initial support from the government, most of the respondents received free certified inbred seeds and availed rice credit assistance with minimal interest rates. Additionally, they were given trainings to enhance their skills and knowledge of rice production.
