Studies show that the average age of farmers is nearing 60 as more young people abandon farms to seek work elsewhere. However, this doesn't apply to everyone as young farming enthusiasts thrive in different aspects of agriculture especially with today's trends in modern technology.
The Digital Farmers Program (DFP) caters to this new breed of farmers and bridges them with the more experienced ones. At the same time, this joint initiative of the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) and Smart Communications, Inc. empowers small-scale farmers nationwide by educating and giving them access to available digital tools and technologies. Learn more about the program and its initial activities in this latest issue of ACCESS, ATI’s official publication. Likewise, read more about the Institute’s e-Extension program to see the learning opportunities that can be maximized through the use of technology.
