Rice app helps boost farmers’ productivity and reduce greenhouse gas emissions in rice fields

 Rice Today   |  

The digital application Rice Crop Manager (RCM), developed by IRRI, works on the principle of site-specific nutrient management and can be used to provide free advisories to farmers on balanced fertilizer applications.

RCM helps farmers reach their targeted yields, reduce input costs and GHG emissions,  and contribute to the integration of climate-smart agriculture practices in the rice production system.

First developed for Philippine farmers, the app has been customized for Bangladesh, Indonesia, and India. To date, more than one million farmers have benefited through the use of RCM advisories.
