Information on rice, such as where it is grown, when it is grown, how much is produced, and what affects the crop as it grows is necessary for decision-making and policy support towards achieving a rice-secure future for the Philippines. To address this need, PRISM, a research and development (R&D) project in support of the Department of Agriculture’s (DA) Food Staples Sufficiency Program, was initiated in October 2013. It was developed under the collaborative R&D project of DA, DA-PhilRice and IRRI, with funding from DA-Bureau of Agricultural Research (BAR) from 2014 to 2017 and through DBM starting 2018.
