Capacitating Agricultural Extension Workers and farmers to become agripreneurs while addressing concerns with the “new normal climate”, the Agricultural Training Institute - MiMaRoPa conducted 10-day Intensive Trainers’ Training on Climate Smart Farm Business School (CSFBS) on February 14 - 24, 2017 at Barcenaga, Naujan, Oriental Mindoro.
The ten-day TOT is a rollout of the modality at the regional level which consisted of six modules related to both climate change and Farm Business School (FBS) including the re-entry planning.
RIZAL, OCCIDENTAL MINDORO - A total of 22 farmer-scientists from the Municipality of Rizal graduated from Farmer-Scientist RDE Training Program (FSTP) in a Corn-based Production System for Sustainable Agricultural Development Phase III last February 9, 2017 at Brgy. Malawaan, Rizal, Occidental Mindoro.
“To deliver quality services to our clientele, we need to assess the programs and activities we implemented last year and there is a need to plan our trainings for this year”.
This was an important statement that Training Center Superintendent II, Mr. Pat Andrew B. Barrientos said during the 2016 Annual Review and Assessment and Planning Workshop for 2017 on January 12-13, 2017 at ATI-MiMaRoPa Training Hall, Barcenaga, Naujan, Oriental Mindoro.
In support to the Food Security Program of the Department of Agriculture, the Agricultural Training Institute in MiMaRoPa in partnership with the Office of the Provincial Agriculture (OPAg) in Marinduque successfully conducted a School-on-the-Air (SOA) on Vegetable Production dubbed as, “OMG: Oh, My Gulay”.
The first step to know better the farmers and their farms is to spend time with them on a working farm.
With the use of electronic learning, the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) in MiMaRoPa believes that learners could be trained easily through blended learning - an integration of online and face-to-face training.
Thus, the ATI trained 37 Agricultural Extension Workers from Oriental and Occidental Mindoro in basic beekeeping. Unlike other usual trainings, the participants were required to take up and finish the online course before the start of the actual training.
