Drought and Crop Assessment and Forecasting (DCAF)

Site-specific planting dates for rice and corn.  SARAI generated improved planting calendar based on different approaches (cumulative rainfall, yield probability, and rainfall probability coupled with crop yield simulation approaches; and farmers’ practice), validated in Batac, Ilocos Norte; Los Baños , Laguna; Ligao City, Albay; and Butuan City, Agusan del Norte.  The planting dates can be used to plan a farm’s activities in the coming months
