DA shares rice prod’n technologies thru radio
by Emerson Deñado - Thursday, 17 September 2020, 12:58 PM
 

In an effort to reach as many farmers as possible, amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the Department of Agriculture (DA) will harness the power of radio into a unified distance learning program on modern rice agriculture, dubbed as “Makabagong Pagsasaka sa Himpapawid.”

On August 27, Agriculture Secretary William Dar received the “Manual of Operations of the School-on-the-Air on Smart Rice Agriculture (SOA-SRA),” that provides step-by-step process, concepts, strategies, and best practices in the conduct of educational radio programs.

The SOA-SRA targets to provide learning program in provinces with average yields of less than four tons per hectare, initially serving 300,000 rice farmer-enrollees within two years.

“There is relevance in delivering the news, and not only to deliver news, but also to enhance the capabilities of farmers,” Secretary Dar said.

The program — developed and facilitated by the joint task force on scaling rice technologies, composed of the DA and International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) — identified the urgency to mainstream also the Philippine-IRRI Collaborative Rice R4D Program (PICRP) outputs such as NextGen varieties, Rice Crop Manager (RCM), Philippine Rice Information System (PRiSM), and Pest Risk Identification and Management (PRIME), among others, to rice farmers. Research funds for these technologies were funded by DA, through the Bureau of Agricultural Research.

The Cagayan Valley Region served as the program’s pilot area with over 10,000 enrollees.

The DA-Region Field Offices, in partnership with the Agricultural Training Institute (DA-ATI), Philippine Center for Postharvest Development and Mechanization (DA-PhilMech), Bureau of Plant Industry (DA-BPI), state universities and colleges (SUCs), and local radio networks, will jointly implement the initiative.

It will be simultaneously conducted in DA-owned and sponsored radio stations, Philippine Broadcasting Service (PBS) Radyo Pilipinas, Philippine Information Agency (PIA), community-based radio stations, and members of the Philippine Federation of Rural Broadcasters (PFRB).

The SOA-SRA will focus on learning program on DA-IRRI cutting edge technologies, along with PalayCheck system and broader context on climate change.

Participating radio stations and rural broadcasters will also be provided with radio plugs, canned interviews, and ready-to-be-aired scripts and CDs produced through a pilot radio campaign of the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security in Southeast Asia (CCAFS SEA) and PFRB project titled “Climate Change: i-Broadkas Mo”.

In his message, Secretary Dar said that the SOA-SRA must be embraced as a family activity.

“Other members of the family must also participate in this learning process, so there will be an exchange of learning ideas among them,” he said.

The SOA-SRA will be launched in September.

The Adaptation and Mitigation Initiative in Agriculture or AMIA supported the development of new planning tools that consider the challenges of climate change, to assist Filipino farmers and fisher folks, and all other stakeholders, including the private sector, towards climate-ready crop management systems, while ensuring science-based interventions by the government.

#TECHNOTIPS: Straw Mushroom
by Catheryn Villorente - Thursday, 17 September 2020, 11:43 AM
 
straw mushroom Straw mushroom or Volvariella volvacea is very nutritious and contains a cocktail of nutrients. It has natural insulin for diabetes and has low fat fungus and carbohydrates that is good for the liver, pancreas, and other endocrine glands. It also has vitamin A, vitamin B complex, and vitamin C in addition to flavonoids and selenium that help reduce free radicals in the body. It also has beta-glucans that inhibit the growth of certain cancers.

Straw mushroom is widely cultivated in tropical areas and are usually grown in compost piles filled with dead leaves, wood, waste stumps, and rice straws. Its buds are available for harvest 13-15 days after sowing.

#TECHNOTIPS: Gabi
by Catheryn Villorente - Monday, 14 September 2020, 03:19 PM
 
gabi technotipsTaro, locally known as “gabi”, is generally considered as a backyard crop. It ranks third in production and hectarage among crops grown in the Philippines. Aside from its nutritional value and market potential, gabi can be grown throughout the year in a wide range of soils.

Although the practice varies from region to region, gabi can be cultivated under upland (dry culture) or lowland (wet culture).

Upland or dry culture is the predominant practice in the country. The crop is grown mostly in backyards, usually along the bank of drainage canals or in small plots with adequate supply of water. In this case, land preparation is minimal and usually done with the aid of hand tools. Moreover, in commercial scale, gabi is often intercropped among coffee, cacao, coconut, and fruit trees.

On the other hand, the lowland or wet culture system of growing gabi is not as popular considering farmers grow rice in paddies. It is usually being practiced in areas where culinary demand for taro is high like in the Bicol Region. In this system, land preparation is essentially similar as preparing a rice paddy field.

Young agripreneurs get loans from DA’s “KAYA” via cash card
by Emerson Deñado - Friday, 11 September 2020, 10:18 AM
 
Author: DA Communications Group | 6 July 2020

Young Filipinos whose proposed agribusiness projects were approved under the Department of Agriculture’s Kapital Access for Young Agripreneurs (KAYA) financing program can now get their loans swiftly through “KAYA” cash card.

The initiative was formally launched on July 6, 2020, by Agriculture Secretary William Dar, on behalf of the DA’s Agricultural Credit Policy Council (ACPC), and Orlando Vea, founder and CEO of PayMaya Philippines, Inc.

“With this digital platform, we will be able to reach out and convince more Filipino millennials to engage in agriculture, fishery and agribusiness ventures, and more importantly bankroll their respective projects,” said Secretary Dar.

“They need not come over to Metro Manila, but simply get their approved KAYA loan from ATM terminals using their KAYA cash card,” the DA chief added.

Under the KAYA loan program, the DA-ACPC offers zero-interest, uncollateralized loans of up to P500,000, payable in five years.

Project proponents should be 18 to 30 years old, and graduates of formal or non-formal schooling.

“KAYA is the first digitized DA-ACPC financing program. Its training and mentoring component is done through web conferencing and its disbursements and collections will now be done through PayMaya,” said DA-ACPC Executive Director Jocelyn Badiola.

“As our lockdown experience has shown, we need to further explore the cyberspace and take our digitalization efforts to the next level as part of the new normal,” said Secretary Dar.

PayMaya will allow ACPC’s KAYA partner lending conduits (PLCs) to digitally disburse loans through reloadable cash cards with real-time crediting using a web-based portal.

Through the KAYA cash card, loan beneficiaries will also have access to other PayMaya financial services such as e-wallet account, remittance, bills payment, and fund withdrawal.

“Now, more than ever, as we continue fulfilling our mandate of providing easy, timely, and affordable credit to farmers and fisherfolk, we are recognizing that digital financing is the way forward,” Badiola said.

Also present during the KAYA card launch, via teleconferencing, were: PayMaya Philippines president Shailesh Baidwan; Development Bank of the Philippines president and CEO Emmanuel Herbosa; and officers of DA-ACPC partner lending conduits, namely: Myrna Sescon, Mindanao Consolidated Cooperative Bank; Atty. Albert Concha Jr., Rural Bank of Rizal; Marivic Leparto, Rural Bank of Manolo Fortich; and Liza Ison, New San Leonardo Rural Bank.

Five initial KAYA proponents also joined the teleconference. They will engage in the production of ducks, mushrooms, high-value vegetables through hydroponics, and chili in garlic oil. Their projects were evaluated and approved by the DA-ACPC partner lending conduit, New Rural Bank of San Leonardo, in Nueva Ecija. ### (Gumamela Celes Bejarin, DA-AFID)
