Social Impact: Enabling farmers through technology

To bridge the gap between research and practice in rice production, the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), in collaboration with the Government of Assam, Assam Agricultural University, and the Assam Agribusiness and Rural Transformation Project developed the Rice Knowledge Bank, Assam (RKB, Assam)—a digital extension service that provides practical knowledge solutions, specialized for small-scale farmers for the state of Assam.

The task was to showcase rice production techniques, agricultural technologies, and best farming practices based on IRRI’s and AAU’s pool of knowledge from research findings, learning and media resources, and in-country projects through a unique web portal.


Developing a web portal that can manage data of such quantum was a challenging task. We had to address the biggest challenge to agricultural development by develop a portal that can support fast and effective transfer of technologies from the research laboratory to the farmer’s field.


Once we understand how data can be managed to provide the best result every time, the task was to execute the flow of data that can facilitate easy access to information. To do so, we had to code the step-by-step Production Stages from pre-planting to postproduction management, Decision Tools, and Agronomy Guides to help farmers make informed farming decisions.


The purpose of the project was to help farmers through the process of pre-planning, growth and post-production helping you to market and benefit even more.
