After 4 years of Research and Development, the PRiSM Unit was established in 2018 at PhilRice to serve as laboratory in generating data, maps and other information products; to manage the implementation of field activities; and maintains its systems and database  in a centralized approach. PRiSM has designed its infrastructure and strengthen its capability to ensure an operation beyond sustainability.

PRiSM supports the Department of Agriculture in its national and regional decision-making and policies related to rice security programs to fulfill its vision of a technology-based agriculture that will empower the farming communities to produce enough, accessible and affordable food for every Filipino.
