THE Office of the City Agriculture has recommended a cloud seeding operation this month instead of May to ensure success of the project, which aims to cushion the effect of long dry spell.

City Agriculturist Diosdado Palacat made the recommendation after P4.8 million had been committed for the operation.

Palacat said the Department of Agriculture (DA) has committed P3 million, while the Zamboanga City Water District promised P1.5 million and the City Government has offered P300,000.

He said the funding committed is good for a two-month cloud seeding operation, adding that the operation should be done this month since there are “seedable clouds.”

“In May, we will be at a loss in paying the pilot and rental of plane since there are no seedable clouds,” he said.

Cloud seeding is the process of spreading either dry ice, or more commonly, silver iodide aerosols, into the upper part of clouds to stimulate the precipitation process and form rain.

Partial report from the office of Palacat showed the long dry spell already damaged farm crops — from rice, corn, cassava to banana and vegetables — amounting to P91.9 million. It also dried up farmlands extending to 8,471.6 hectares, affecting 1,840 individual farmers as of last week. (Bong Garcia)
