DILIMAN, Quezon City – In line with its goal to empower and build the capacities of its stakeholders, the Agricultural Training Institute continues to develop its e-Learning program for agriculture and fisheries.
In addition to its existing 55 free online courses, four new courses were developed and uploaded to provide the growing number of e-Learners with technical knowledge in growing crops, raising livestock, and in agribusiness.
The Agricultural Training Institute is one with the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) of the United Nations (UN) in celebrating the World Soil Day (WSD) this December 5.
This year’s celebration of WSD aims to raise awareness and call for people to #StopSoilPollution. These days, pollution continues to be a worry and soil is also affected. While the changes that have made to the planet can be seen, some of the impacts are virtually invisible and soil pollution is a good example.
