The DA-PhilRice Agusan RCEF group, in coordination with the Davao de Oro Provincial Agriculture Office, pilot-tested the Rice Crop Manager (RCM) application in Montevista. RCM is designed to generate fertilizer recommendations. Over 50 farmers from selected areas participated in the activity. A validation of land area, through Global Positioning System (GPS), helped determine the accurate fertilizer recommendation for each farmer-beneficiary. Together with IRRI, this is under a DA-integrated approach involving the RCEF Program and the Rice Crop Manager Advisory Services (RCMAS), which is fully and operationally managed by the DA-PhilRice and DA-ICT this year.
