As part of its thrust to modernize the country’s agri-fishery sector, the Department of Agriculture (DA) is laying the groundwork to digitize its operations starting with the upgrading of its management information system (MIS).
Following the success of the 2019 campaign, this year’s World Food Safety Day (WFSD) will continue to promote awareness and call all players in the farm-to-fork continuum to take part in the food safety movement.
Under the theme “Food safety, everyone’s business”, the international day of commemoration encourages everyone who grows, processes, transports, stores, distributes, sells, prepares, serves, and consumes food; goodwill ambassadors; social media influencers and the general public, especially the youth to make a sustained difference in food safety.
Agriculture Secretary William Dar and other officials of the Department of Agriculture (DA) led the harvesting of fresh vegetables from the technology demonstration sites of the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI), highlighting the culmination of the 2020 National Farmers' and Fisherfolk's Month celebration on May 29.
Extension services continue to evolve. With the challenges that extension workers and farmers face, the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) continues to explore various strategies to improve its efforts as the extension and training arm of the Department of Agriculture. In over 30 years, the ATI has celebrated various successes and learned from the lessons during hard times. Nonetheless, we are proud to be standing the test of time through the support of our partners and the clientele themselves. This is the ATI Today, more committed to bring you extension services beyond boundaries.
