Farmers, extension workers, agricultural officers, researchers, and policymakers can benefit from our SARAi Knowledge Portal and Drought and Crop Assessment and Forecasting (DCAF), which are both part Smarter Approaches to Reinvigorate Agriculture as Industry in the Philippines or SARAI Program. The program aims to provide relevant advisories on different crops. SARAI Knowledge Portal The Smarter Approaches to Reinvigorate Agriculture as an Industry in the Philippines or SARAi Knowledge Portal offers a wide range of agricultural services on web and mobile platforms for its priority crops: rice, corn, banana, coconut, coffee, cacao, sugarcane, tomato, and soybean.

With PCAARRD as the funding agency together with PhilRice, PCA, BSWM, PAGASA, PCIC, SRA, and its co-implementing State Universities and Colleges, the SARAi Knowledge Portal aims to reduce climate risks by providing its agricultural stakeholders nationwide with site-specific crop advisories. It is anchored on precision agriculture by optimizing advances in technology such as Normalized Difference Vegetation Index (NDVI), Crop and Simulation Modelling (CSM), Remote Sensing and Geographic Information Systems (RS/GIS), Standardized Vegetation-Temperature Ratio (SVTR), and field sensors to develop decision support models for crop forecasting, crop advisories, and early warning systems.
ACCESS THE PORTAL HERE DCAF is an applied science research that aims to improve the nation’s capability of predicting drought, assessing crop yield, and mitigating effects of drought in the Philippines. It provides advisories on optimal planting dates for greater yield during different climate events. This is done by utilizing various crop models and forecasting techniques.

The DCAF project exists as an initiative to mitigate effects of drought in the Philippines using technologies like satellite imagery, GPS, climate models, and other geospatial tools. It also provides technologies to enhance agricultural productivity and improve farm management.

DCAF works closely with its partner agencies: Bureau of Soils and Water Management (BSWM) and Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (PAGASA).
