During the Rice Crop Manager (RCM) interview with farmers.

For the past years, Rice Crop Manager (RCM) has been deployed in the region by the Department of Agriculture - Agricultural Training Institute (DA-ATI) with close coordination with International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) in conducting trainings, briefings and distribution of personalized recommendation generation through interviews.

Rice Crop Manager (RCM) uses results of research and existing knowledge to provide farmers in irrigated and rainfed lowlands with precise field-and farmer-specific recommendations.

Three briefings and generation of recommendation was conducted, one briefing in the municipality of Kabasalan, Zamboanga Sibugay and two briefings in Bayog, Zamboanga del Sur last February 26-27, 2018.

Through that activity, the ATI RCM Team successfully generated 102 recommendations that was given to the farmers as their reference for the upcoming cropping season.
