THE WAY FORWARD │ Level Up Philippine Agriculture!

SOA-SRA Turnover (August 27, 2020)

Author: DA Communications Group | 27 August 2020

In an effort to reach as many farmers as possible, amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the Department of Agriculture (DA) will harness the power of radio into a unified distance learning program on modern rice agriculture, dubbed as “Makabagong Pagsasaka sa Himpapawid.”

On August 27, Agriculture Secretary William Dar received the “Manual of Operations of the School-on-the-Air on Smart Rice Agriculture (SOA-SRA),” that provides step-by-step process, concepts, strategies, and best practices in the conduct of educational radio programs.

The SOA-SRA targets to provide learning program in provinces with average yields of less than four tons per hectare, initially serving 300,000 rice farmer-enrollees within two years. (Photos by Adones Buhayan, DA-AFID)
