IRRI, DA RFO and ATI gather for the National Training of Trainers on Rice Crop Manager (RCM)

 San Pablo City, Laguna – With the goal of strengthening competitiveness and capacities of the Agriculture and Fishery Extension (AFE), Rice Crop Manager (RCM) Focal Persons across all Regions of Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) and the Department of Agriculture (DA) Field Offices are currently undergoing Training of Trainers (ToT) on RCM. Thirty seven (37) participants attend the six-day training in Auravel Grande Hotel and Resort.

“Sa Rice Crop Manager ay malaki yung maitutulong ng teknolohiya para mas mapaabot natin sa mga farmers kung paano nila mas mapapalaki ang kanilang ani at the same time mapapalaki yung kanilang kita,” as emphasized by Engr. Arnel V. De Mesa, Regional Executive Director of DA RFO IV-A, on his message to the participants. The ToT on RCM is a tie-up project between the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) and the DA. The activity aims to further enhance the knowledge and capacities of Agricultural Extension Workers (AEWs) on RCM. Resource Speakers from IRRI, Holly Torres and Rowena Castillo, equipped the participants with information on the basics and process flow in operating the technology-based RCM. Moreover, participants are exposed to hands-on activities including facilitating farmer interviews. Participants are also scheduled to conduct actual interviews with the farmers of Brgy. San Jose, Brgy. Cabay and Brgy. Del Rosario of Tiaong, Quezon and at the same time generate RCM Recommendations. At the end of the training, participants are expected to roll-out and apply the learnings in their respective locality.

The ToT on RCM is ongoing from July 24 – 29, 2016. IRRI spearheaded the training in collaboration with ATI Central Office and ATI IV-A, as the Training Management Team and host of the activity.
