The Rice activity Monitoring and Reporting System (RiceMoRe) is built to advance the work of monitoring and planning rice production at central and local agriculture offices. It assists in collecting and reporting data on rice cultivation progress on weekly, seasonal, and annum bases. The tool is user-friendly and can easily be operated by agriculture officials at commune, district, and province levels. It also standardizes the reporting template from the district level to provincial and ecological region levels.

An Excel-based prototype of the RiceMoRe system has been developed for 'proof of concept' and piloted in Can Tho during three rice seasons of 2020-2021. From early 2023, in collaboration with the Department of Crop Production and the Center for Agricultural Digital Transformation and Statistics under Vietnam's Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development, RiceMoRe has been upgraded to beta web-based and mobile app version.  The system has been successfully piloted and operated in various provinces in the Mekong River Delta (MRD) and Red River Delta (RRD) regions as of April 2024.

RiceMoRe enhances the accuracy and effectiveness of data management and reporting, which contributes significantly to informing climate-responsive action planning and decision-making. 

The Farm Monitoring and Reporting Tool (FarMoRe) is a survey app that collects rice farming practices at farm/cooperative level to validate reported data from the RiceMoRe system.

How does it work?

RiceMoRe consists of two Excel-based tools, namely RiceMo1 and RiceMo2. The former is for data management and reporting at district level; while the latter is operated at provincial and higher levels to consolidate data from lower level and generate summary reports of production progress. This tool integrates data management with a Geographic Information System (GIS) component to assist in mapping and illustrating production progress at the details upto commune level.
