BANGA, Aklan – Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) in Region 6 conducts a benchmarking activity on April 10, 2019 in Oton, Iloilo for enrollees of the School-On-the-Air (SOA) and Farmer’s Field School (FFS) on Onion Production, Harvesting and Marketing.
Oton has a vast area planted with onion. Through this benchmarking activity, the participants will have the opportunity to personally interact with the more progressive onion growers particularly on their management and marketing strategies. These participants from the different municipalities of Aklan are enrollees of SOA and FFS on Onion Production, Harvesting and Marketing. The SOA is currently aired over RMN-DYKR every Sunday from 12:00NN to 1:00PM while FFS is conducted every Friday from 7:00AM to 12:00NN.
SOA is one of the extension modalities of ATI to reach a vast audience even in far flung areas. Through this, farmers and enthusiasts can learn at their own place and at their own pace. Moreover, practical applications of the learning are enhanced through the FFS.
