Corcuera, Romblon is an island municipality wherein livestock is one of the thriving means of living. The training on gender and development (GAD) entitled “Sustainable and Climate - Resilient Livestock Farming” became significant to the participants because it retorts to the limited supplies of feeds for their animals.
ATI-MiMaRoPa through its Information Services Section was able to conduct two training under the Climate Change Program for the month of March.
A total of 24 Local Farmer Technicians from the municipalities of Marinduque and Romblon were oriented on the ICT Tools on Agriculture last March 20, 2018 at ATI MiMaRoPa Compound, Barcenaga, Naujan, Oriental Mindoro.
"I am satisfied for the excellent presentation and inspiring plans and programs of ATI to help us achieved sustainable Organic Agriculture (OA) through intensified trainings and seminars to OA practitioners and non-practitioners."
In preparation for the book of Magsasakang Siyentista (MS), the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) in MiMaRoPa captured the inspirational life stories of MS of Farmers’ Information Technology Services (FITS) in the region.
“Kaalaman, Impormasyon at Teknolohiya sa Wastong Paghahayupan Kikita Ka”, a famous tagline that captured the heart of SOA livestock farmers.
