Extreme Temperature Advisory No. 1 For Agriculture


Issued by PAGASA

Farmers and fisherfolks are advised to take precautionary measures against the extreme weather condition, most especially during the afternoon when the highest daytime temperature normally occurs.

Due to this high temperature pattern, farmers and small fisherfolks are advised to limit the conduct of outdoor farming activities (e.g. planting, harvesting, plowing) and fishing activities, respectively.

This is to help ease heat stresses and lessen the possibility of heat cramps, heat exhaustion and other heat-related illnesses.

Moreover, watering the crops during early morning and evening may help alleviate stress on them. Likewise, farm animals should also be taken to shelters or shades between 10 AM to 3 PM, and should be given plenty of water to drink. Barns, crop storage rooms and animal shelters need to be in good, clean and well-ventilated conditions as well.
