Smarter Approaches to Reinvigorate Agriculture as an Industry in the Philippines (SARAI)-Enhanced Agriculture Monitoring System (SEAMS)

A web-based system that uses GIS, remote sensing and Normalized Difference Vegetation Index or the index of plant “greenness” or photosynthetic activity to monitor the status of agricultural crops. This can be used to determine the following:  crop damage assessment (typhoon, drought, and pests), land use/cover change, vulnerability assessment, identify possible breeding ground of major …

Research for Development – Payment for Ecosystem Services Outcome for Sustainable Water Provision (R4D:PESO SWaP) in Barobbob Watershed, Nueva Vizcaya

Implementing payment for ecosystem services (PES) mechanism as an approach towards sustainability is a relatively novel approach in environmental conservation. PES mechanisms create a market for ecosystem services by making users/beneficiaries pay for the services while compensating conservation activities of service providers. These compensations are often based on the estimate of the provider’s foregone income …

Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Inventory of Industrial Tree Plantation Production Chain in Caraga Region, Mindanao

The industrial tree plantation (ITP) sector has great potential to contribute to the country’s economic development. However, the entire business of establishing industrial forest plantations would not only contribute to increased carbon absorption but along the process, carbon is also emitted particularly from the harvesting operation down to the processing of wood products. Greenhouse gas …

Improvement of Garlic and Other Agri-Food Condiments Productivity through Integrated Crop Management (ICM) System

The increase in temperature and occurrence of rain showers during the garlic growing season favor pest incidence, which causes a substantial decrease in yield and bulb quality. Hence, the project titled, “Improvement of Garlic and Other Agri-Food Condiments Productivity through Integrated Crop Management (ICM) System” aimed to improve garlic productivity through the development of an …

Decision Support System for Enhancing Climate Change Resiliency of Smallholder Upland Farmers in Selected Communities of CALABARZON, Philippines

Climate change impacts on the social and ecological aspects of food production threaten the food security of the farming households and nearby communities. It is high time, therefore, to investigate on the appropriate decision support system that would enhance farmers’ resiliency to climate change impacts. This project was implemented to help upland communities cope with …

Carrageenan Plant Growth Promoter (CPGP) Technology for Rice Production

The development of Carrageenan Plant Growth Promoter (CPGP) is funded by PCAARRD. CPGP has been proven to increase rice yields by 15 to 30 percent based on multi-location trials in 7 regions in the Philippines also making the crops more resistant to blight and infestation such as the tungro virus. Carrageenan also helps in strengthening …

Integration of Traditional and Modern Bioproduction Systems for a Sustainable and Resilient Future Under Climate Ecosystems Changes (ITMoB)

The study aims to determine which combinations of traditional bioproduction systems and modern bioproduction systems are most likely to lead to a sustainable and resilient future in the Philippines. The project is envisioned to improve watershed governance by instituting science-based decision-making among LGU and DENR and other institutional partners.

Smarter Approaches to Reinvigorate Agriculture as an Industry in the Philippines (SARAI)

SARAI, or Smarter Approaches to Reinvigorate Agriculture as an Industry in the Philippines is a program funded by DOST-PCAARRD, working towards reducing climate risks by providing agricultural stakeholders with site-specific crop advisories.  With the University of the Philippines Los Baños as the lead implementing agency and its joint efforts with partners from 11 State Universities …
