<P>MANILA, Feb. 23 (Xinhua) -- Philippine rice production is expected to grow 2.5 percent on year to 4.13 million metric tons in the first quarter on changes in the cropping practice of farmers, a senior agriculture official said Thursday.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Agriculture Assistant Secretary Dante S. Delima said he expects paddy rice output in the second quarter of the year to post a significant growth as farmers resort to early cropping and ratooning.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>"Output for January to June may already include the additional 1 million metric ton of palay which we are targeting from the change in the cropping practice of farmers," Delima said in a briefing.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>The projected output for the first quarter of the year is higher than the 4.035 million tons estimate made by the Bureau of Agricultural Statistics in January.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Delima said the Philippines may be able to reduce rice imports to 100,000 tons next year if the government will be successful in persuading farmers to change their cropping schedule.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>Under the government's plan, farmers will be enjoined to plant a month earlier or by April for the wet cropping season in 2012. Harvest will then start in August. The plan also calls for a third cropping which may start in October.</P> <P>&nbsp;</P> <P>"The idea is to avoid the period when strong typhoons usually visit the Philippines," he said. </P> <P>&nbsp;</P>
