MIMAROPA farmers who use the RCM or Rice Crop Manager recommendations increased its average yield to 4.93 tons/ha. in 2018 (using inbred rice variety) which is usually higher from the region’s average yield that is 3.8tons/ha (before the launching of RCM in 2013), based on Department of Agriculture-MIMAROPA (DA-MIMAROPA) Research Division’s report.
