WHEREAS, the present temporary lean months in domestic rice production expected to end by mid-October this year and a world-wide shortfall in rice harvests have resulted in the current unstable market situation for rice and corn.

WHEREAS, the price of corn grain in production centers has steadily risen due to unwarranted competition among traders; and

WHEREAS, it is desirable and for the benefit of the masses of our people that the price level of corn and other prime consumer commodities be stabilized;
