Location of rice areas and rice calendar for the Philippines

mappingRIICE

In the aftermath of Typhoon Haiyan, IRRI published datasets on the location of rice areas in the Philippines as well as a detailed rice calendar. Both datasets are critical to helping quantify rice production and potential import needs and export opportunities by characterizing rice areas, modeling rice growth, estimating the yield and identifying appropriate timing of technological interventions. It can therefore help policy-makers with their decisions and be used to prioritize research and extension activities to help rice farmers.
