The Philippine Center for Postharvest and Mechanization (PhilMech) said the farm machinery that they would distribute to rice farmers under the rice competitiveness enhancment program (RCEP) may also help them cultivate other crops such as corn and cassava.

Citing a study it conducted, PhilMech said a number of the farm equipment to be distributed under RCEP are crop neutral or could be used in cultivating other crops, like corn, cassava, and even vegetables.

Other impacts of the program may include cost reduction in using several mechanization technologies for other crops such as corn, cassava, and others. It should be noted that some facilities included in the program are crop neutral, PhilMech said in a statement on Thursday.
