First Pinoy Farmers’ Internet Kiosk

Farmers in the province of Bulacan could now enjoy the benefits of information and communications technology (ICT) in agriculture following the recent launching of the first Pinoy Farmers’ Internet Kiosk for the location-specific technology development (LSTD) project.

Spearheaded by the Open Academy for Philippine Agriculture (OPAPA) based at the Philippine Rice Institute (PhilRice) here, the launching was highlighted with the turnover of a desktop computer to barangay officials in Bubulong Malaki, San Ildefonso town.

“With this kiosks, farmers, and other rice stakeholders in Bulacan will have easier and improved access to farming knowledge and technologies that will enhance their productivity,” PhilRice executive director Ronilo A. Beronio said as he handed down the equipment to barangay chairman Reynaldo G. Victoria.

PhilRice will also provide compact disc and web-based knowledge resources on rice and rice-based production.

Meanwhile, the barangay council funded the establishment of the kiosk and internet connection.

To improve the computer literacy of the farmers, Beronio said OPAPA will conduct regular basic computer operation trainings and virtual consultation through web conferencing.

Another Pinoy Farmers’ Internet Kiosk will soon be put up in another LSTD site at Barangay Baras, Takurong City, Sultan Kudarat.

As PhilRice’s support to the government’s Rice Self-Sufficiency program, LSTD aims to increase productivity and income of farmers through the PalayCheck and Palayamanan Systems.
