The Lakbay Palay 2023 provided an avenue for the exchange of ideas and experiences concerning the rice industry’s current and emerging problems.

The activity was notable for highlighting the following:

1. Rice production technologies and agricultural techniques that are climate-smart, cost-effective, and yield-enhancing for hybrid rice varieties;

2. Knowledge-sharing and learning activities on rice cultivation technologies and techniques, and

3. Additional technological advancements in rice-based products in the region.

The participation of the students and members of the faculty was made possible through the efforts of Ma’am Ira M. Habla, Campus Extension and Training Coordinator, Prof. Andrew F. Detera, SorSU-CC Campus Director, and his vision of providing quality education through hands-on experience to the students, as well as the continuous support and guidance of Dr. Geraldine F. De Jesus, Sorsogon State University President, and the faculty and students’ fellowship and solidarity.
