The proposed National Farmers’ Registry System (NFRS) programme is a voluntary registration system developed by the Department of Agriculture, wherein any farmer who actually tills and invests in a farm may enlist by providing relevant information and supporting documents.

The NFRS aims to establish a reliable data of farmers and farmlands so that the delivery of agricultural programs and services by the DA and other government agencies could be accessed by and/or timely delivered to the intended farmer clientele.

According to a spokesperson from the DA, the implementation will commence next month in different municipalities of Leyte (an island province with a population of 2 million), particularly in areas where the National Disaster Coordinating Council and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources perceive to be most vulnerable to flood, drought, and landslides.

In addition, NFRS will be linked to the Unified and Geospatial Information System, a reliable and comprehensive database for agriculture and fisheries, which is intended not only to address existing data gaps, but most importantly, to improve the effectiveness and efficiency of support services to farmers.
