The first phase of rice cultivation in Jiannan District will be suspended next year due to the water shortage crisis, and farmers' applications for fallow compensation will be accepted from December 1 to 20. Chen Jizhong, chairman of the Council of Agriculture, went to Lucao Township workstation in Chiayi County of the Agriculture and Water Conservancy Department on the morning of the 2nd to learn about the farmers' declaration. Chairman Chen Jizhong stressed that the supply of rice in public grain stocks is sufficient for eight months, and those affected by the upper, middle and lower reaches of the industrial chain due to the fallow policy can be compensated.

Chairman Chen Jizhong, accompanied by Weng Zhangliang, mayor of Chiayi County, and others on the 2nd, went to Lucao Township to learn about the application of fallow subsidies and talked with farmers. Chairman Chen Jizhong said that both the President and the Executive Yuan have instructed that subsidies must be higher than the income of growing rice, at least NT $82000 per hectare, and will certainly be distributed to farmers before the Lunar New year. The farmers said that the conditions of compensation were very good, who told the weather that it would not rain.

Some farmers have reflected on the issue of compensation for the industrial chain, and Chairman Chen Jizhong stressed that compensation can be made as long as there are specific losses in the upstream, middle and downstream industries affected by the suspension of irrigation, including seedlings, rice husk drying, pesticides, fertilizers, and tillers. As for the compensation for whether or not to join the mechanical farming association, he pointed out on the spot that the accompanying officials would assist the operators in solving the problem.

In addition, he also called on people to eat more domestic rice. He said that at present, there will be no problem with public grain stocks and the second rice harvest, and there will be plenty of paddy. In particular, the price of grain has risen to more than 1,000 yuan per 100 jin of wet rice. The average monthly cost of white rice for a family of four is 600 yuan. If it increases by 10%, only 60 yuan more in a month, and only 2 yuan more in an average day, but this 10% is very important to farmers and can help rice farmers stabilize their livelihood. Please eat more domestic rice.

The deer grass workstation of the Jiannan Management Office of the farmland and Water Conservancy Department covers an area of 2127 hectares, of which 1338.69 hectares are affected by the first phase of rice cultivation.
