9. Goal and objectives Goal: Rice Production in Central Highland is increased.
Obj.: Rice Productivity is improved in the model sites.
10. Target beneficiaries Direct: Officials in charge of development of rice cultivation techniques, seed inspectors, farmers in model sites

Secondary: Rice farmers in Central Highland
11. Project component (activities) 1. Determine model sites in each focal Region and conduct a base line survey
2. Conduct research to improve cultivation techniques (soil and water management, pest and weed control) and postharvest technology
3. Develop and promote agricultural machinery
4. Improve seed gene management, seed certification, seed multiplication, and seed distribution
5. Organize training for trainers and promote demonstration of technical packages of rice production in the model sites
6. Facilitate communication and collaboration among stakeholders through meetings, seminar/workshop to farmer associations, etc.
7. Develop technical material (brochures, posters, technical sheets, etc) and utilize broadcast to disseminate technical packages of rice production (TV/Radio)
12. Expected results (outputs) 1. Integrated technical packages of rice production are developed through the Project.
2. Seed multiplication and distribution system is improved under the Project.
3. The linkage among stakeholders regarding rice production improvement in the focal Regions is strengthened
