Improving rice technology promotion and delivery by enhancing the capability of the next generation of extension professionals
and other knowledge intermediaries
Since the 1980s, the Philippine Department of Agriculture (DA)
and the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI) have been
working together to enhance the capabilities of extension
workers in the country.
Now, with more modern tools for information and
communication, knowledge-intensive rice production
technologies, varying consumer needs, and the increasing
complexity of the rice production environment, a more
responsive, innovative, and sustainable technology promotion
and delivery strategy is needed.
