You guys are the best and have the most advance technique/information technology :)" Eric Roca, Cebu

29 Nutrient Manager for Rice in the Philippines NMRice

30 In 2008, scientists compiled existing knowledge into a computer-based decision tools for use by extension workers and farmers. Provide fertilizer guidelines for specific rice fields Develop a guideline based on reply of farmer to about 15 questions MS Access based software distributed on CD

31 Remaining challenge How to reach more farmers faster?

32 Interactive Voice Response (IVR) An interactive technology that allows a computer to detect keypad inputs from a mobile phone. IVR allows farmer to access a database via a telephone keypad. IVR systems can be used to guide a operation (like fertilization of ricefield) where the decisions can be broken down into a series of simple menu choices.

33 NMRiceWeb vs. NMRiceMobile NMRiceWeb 1 NMRiceMobile 2 Can be used for all lowland rice fields, regardless of number of crops per year or amounts of organic fertilizer selected by the farmer. Suitable for most, but not all rice fields When there are 2 rice crops in a year With application of less than 10 bags of organic fertilizer per hectare 1 Can be accessed via 2 This service is free, even if the account/load balance is zero.

34 Nutrient Manager for Rice NMRiceMobile (in Tagalog, Cebuano, Iluko, English) A toll-free messaging service from the Department of Agriculture In collaboration with the International Rice Research Institute

35 How the e-services are promoted Mobilization of pool of e-extension Coordinators from the Regional Training Centers to conduct briefings and promote the e-extension Program and the services of the FCC Dissemination of IEC and promotional materials Participation in agri-fairs and exhibits Promotion in the local radio stations especially for those who have school-on-the air program Promotion through social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter (Pinoy extension) and YouTube Maximizing search engine optimization

36 Our shoutbox! FB link at e-extension page Social network sites!

37 e-extension at FB

38 CHALLENGES AND LESSONS LEARNED

39 Challenges Different negotiations with various service providers that offers various services Stakeholders particularly farmers do not want registration process with syntax, or a machine generated answer to their queries. Budgetary Constraints Lessons Learned - Choose service providers that offer what the stakeholders need -Queries are sent as they are and are processed by the designated agents - premise-based solution, maintained by a service provider, managed by DA-ATI -Budget realigned from the Regular Funds of the Agency - Partnership with the agencies within DA and DOST and private service providers

40 Challenges Lack of capable staff to do content development and administration and extension workers, farmers do not know how to use computers Limited ICT Infrastructure especially in the rural areas Lessons Learned - The Program focused first on the capability building of those who will be involved and moved on to building the capabilities of the extension workers and farmers along the use of ICT thru Basic ICT Literacy Training - Tap the existing Farmers Information and Technology Services Centers nationwide which has available ICT infrastructure. - Partnership with other government agencies thru their Community ecenters

41 Plans Development of the Knowledgebase for agriculture and fisheries Aggressive promotion of the services of the Farmers Contact Center Advocate to the service provider to bring down or subsidize the rate for the call and SMS. Implementation of the IVR on NMRice and NMRice Apps with IRRI

42 Plans More content for the e-extension portal Organization of Communities of Practice for swine and organic agriculture Fund for the conduct of a result evaluation for e-learning Localization of the FCC in the Regions for information dissemination and market matching

43 Plans Tap the youth (4-H Clubs) to be involved in the Program The FCC to be one of the modes for linking the producers and buyers (e- Trading) Coordinate with AMAS for the mobilization of e-trading Continue capability building along ICT for extension workers
