Planting rice in Ilocos Norte.

Every farmer in Ilocos Norte is pre-occupied with the innate desire to produce as much of his needs as possible.  Despite the poor quality of the soil, the Ilocano farmer manages to wrest bountiful harvest from the land.  Rice is his main agriculture crop, and is the Ilocano’s staple food.  Rice farming in Ilocos Norte usually starts in April and become intensified when the rain starts in May.
