ATI IV-A provides RCM recommendations for Dry Season

ATI IV-A provides RCM recommendations for Dry Season

CAVITE - The Agricultural Training Institute Region IV-A conducted the seven remaining briefings out of 15 batches of Rice Crop Manager (RCM) in various municipalities in Batangas, Rizal and recently, in Cavite for the upcoming dry season. 

For the second semester of 2016, a total of 357 of irrigated and rain-fed rice farmers from the municipalites of Calatagan and Balayan, Batangas, Tanay, Rizal (September 26, 27, 28, 2016) and Tanza, Naic, Dasmariñas City, Imus City, Cavite (October 27, 2016) received printed RCM recommendations.
An orientation and actual demonstration of RCM were conducted during the briefings, followed by the face-to-face interview to the farmers. From the 15 batches of briefings conducted, the ISS team interviewed 785 farmers and provided a printed RCM recommendation for their fields. 
 
According to Manuel Telmo, a rice farmer from Naic, Cavite, “Malaking tulong ang RCM sa tamang paglalagay ng fertilizer sa tamang panahon at tamang paraan ng pagsasaka”. 
 
In 2017, ATI IV-A will conduct three batches of provincial roll-out of Training of Trainers to train Agricultural Extension Workers (AEWs) on basic operation and use of Rice Crop Manager. This deployment will help to augment the number of AEWs to reach more farmers and provide RCM recommendations.
