Spreading seedlings

SPREADING SEEDLINGS. A farmer uses a bako (small rake) to replant rice seedlings on a vacant area and spread them equally in the paddy in Barangay Pambuan, Gapan, Nueva Ecija on Monday (July 4, 2022). Traditional rice planting is still practiced in Nueva Ecija due to the lack of farm workers. (PNA photo by Oliver Marquez)
