Fostering agriculture and rice marketing by improved education and rural advisory services (FARMERS)

The Philippines are one of the big rice consuming countries worldwide. Despite having a long tradition in rice cultivation, the Philippines are dependent on rice imports, being one of the biggest rice importers in the world.

In the Philippines, 200 communal agricultural extensionists and lead farmers in the provinces of Iloilo, Aurora and Southern Leyte will be trained as multipliers to improve farmers´ knowledge on rice farming and marketing of their produce. Furthermore, innovative marketing channels for rice farming will be established. BRIA supports government policies on Food Self Sufficiency, in order to decrease dependency on rice imports. The project aims to increase the yields of 8,000 rice farmers by 20 percent and their incomes by 15 percent.
