Agronomy Challenge and Rice Survivor, PhilRice is holding Palayabangan, a rice farming contest in which competing teams attempt to produce an ideal rice yield within specific farming input limits.
Palayabangan enforces the 10-5 standard, in which the aim is to produce 10 tons of rice per hectare while spending only PhP 5 worth of input for every kilogram of rice produced.
The competition is held in support of 2013 as National Year of Rice in the Philippines and is open to PhilRice's partners from the public and private sector.
More information, including guidelines and registration forms, can be accessed at the Palayabangan webpage.
