RCEF mechanization website goes live

PHilMech, the lead agency of the Rice Competitive Enhancement Fund (RCEF)-Mechanization Program, launched its website at https://rcef.philmech.gov.ph during the conduct of its virtual anniversary celebration day via Facebook livestream on May 27.

Leading the ceremonial launching were PHiMech Director IV, Dr. Baldwin G. Jallorina, Director I Arnel Ramir M. Apaga and OIC-Assistant Director, Dr. Michael A. Gragasin. This launching is part of the agency's efforts in order to extend and make its services more transparent and accessible to the farmers and stakeholders.

The RCEF Mechanization website aimed to reach a wide array of audiences using the world wide web and the digital flat form.
It contains information about the program such as program's goals, benefits, beneficiaries, available machinery, requirements and process on how to avail, and data analytics that features agency's transparency on the number of granted machinery and Farmers’ Cooperative and Association (FCA)-beneficiaries per region.

The newly designed website also featured updates on the program through news and feature articles, audio-visual presentation of machinery distributions and testimonials of some members of the FCA-beneficiaries.

Moreover, the website highlights one of the interventions of the agency in order to adapt to the new normal—the PHilMech RCEF Mechanization Virtual Exhibit. This virtual exhibit was also embedded in the website and is designed to replicate an actual exhibit room experience where visitors can explore information on rice-related knowledge and farming strategies.

Currently, the Applied Communication Division (ACD) and the Information Communication Technology Section (ICTS) of PHilMech are working on the content updates of website's navigation menu. This website is compatible on all platforms including mobile phones.
