  •   Allow corn producers/suppliers/sellers to transact with corn users/buyers through an electronic exchange system;
  •   Allow corn producers/suppliers/sellers better income through a more efficient system of post-harvest processing that results in the sale of better quality produce and less marketing layers and cost;
  •   Educating farmers in the workings of the market thus preparing the realities of global competition.

It shall provide the mechanism or system that can help corn sellers link with their market at the right place and right time for better prices.

 

The Irrigated Rice Producting Enhancement Program (IRPEP) - is a sub-programme of the Rapid Food Production Enhancement Programme (RAFPEP), a program of the national government toward rice self-sufficiency funded by a loan from the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD) and a grant from the European Union (EU). NFA's role in the IRPEP is to provide the target beneficiaries with marketing and processing facilities. Under this IRPEP component, NFA will provide members of Irrigators' Associations (IAs) in Regions VIII and X with adequate and correct marketing information, facilitate their access to existing NFA/other government facilities and structures, provide post-harvest facilities (dryers and rice mills) for their use, and promote on-farm marketing mechanisms to improve farm-gate prices and reduce transaction costs for their produce. In order to effectively carry out its role, NFA will improve its existing information system and upgrade its post harvest facilities with the necessary funding from the program.
