In order to efficiently facilitate information to farmers and to shorten response time of the Department of Agriculture (DA), Agriculture Secretary Emmanuel F. PiAol recently launched the "FARMHELP" application at the DA Central Office.
"For so long, technology has been deprived from our farmers." PiAol said during the launch.
He added that the innovation will enable farmers to easily access services from the department resulting to improved production and income.
National Scientist Teodulo Topacio, Jr., Dr. Eulalio Lorenzo, Chairman/CEO of Excellence Group of Companies, and some DA officials witnessed the launching of the app, which is now downloadable for IOS and Android platforms.
Pure Force, the team behind the national emergency hotline application, developed FARMHELP.
