The Department of Agriculture, through its bureaus and attached agencies, celebrates the National Rice Awareness Month (NRAM) every November pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 524 Series of 2014.
NRAM aims to encourage every Filipino to do their small share of RICEponsibility by valuing grain of rice and eating healthier rice to benefit themselves, other consumers, rice farmers, and the country as a whole.
DILIMAN, Quezon City—Rice remains to be a staple food in every Filipino meal and the most abundant crop in terms of production in the country.
