Rice cycles weather modern world crises

Philippines
Indigenous farming communities have fit their lifestyle, traditions and culture to the rice they plant, and they have adjusted their rice cycles, and even some of their rituals, so that they continue to produce ample food in spite of problems such as changing weather patterns. The Department of Agriculture started detecting the changes when they saw a shift in the farming cycle early this year. The planting season in the “green zones (agricultural areas where rain is abundant)” of the region has either moved a month earlier or a month later, depending on the crops. The indigenous peoples “have proven sustainable environmental practices” all over the world and have addressed global warming far earlier than most nations because they have been susceptible to floods and disasters caused by climate change. The Cordillerans have nurtured “hunger crops” such as sweet potatoes, while tending to greenhouses that protect crops from unusual weather. They have made revisions in their schedule of rituals to coincide with the planting cycle. And Cordillerans have many rituals related to planting and harvesting.
