Who says agriculture and arts can't go together? Fans from Muñoz City, Nueva Ecija have proven that a rice field can also be a good canvas for Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray's portrait.
According to a report in GMA News TV's Balitanghali Weekend on Sunday, the Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) spearheaded the project, which started on March 14, 2019.
Fifty workers creatively planted the combination of violet and green seedlings to produce the masterpiece.
Benjamin Sotto, one of the researchers of PhilRice, said that the rice paddy art was made to inspire more people, especially the youth, to venture into rice farming. — Dona Magsino/BM, GMA News
