DILIMAN, Quezon City - The Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) showed its support to the National Rice Awareness Month (NRAM) thru several activities this November.
Last November 5, an exhibit was launched at the ATI main lobby which featured products and technologies in rice farming. Among these were traditional rice varieties, alternate wetting and drying technology, rice based products, rice machineries, and the Philippine Rice Information System (PRISM) and Rice Crop Manager (RCM) apps. The said products and technologies were showcased until November 9.
The Department of Agriculture, through its bureaus and attached agencies, celebrates the National Rice Awareness Month (NRAM) every November pursuant to Presidential Proclamation No. 524 Series of 2014.
NRAM aims to encourage every Filipino to do their small share of RICEponsibility by valuing grain of rice and eating healthier rice to benefit themselves, other consumers, rice farmers, and the country as a whole.
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.
