Over 6,500 farmers and agricultural extension workers (AEWs) were briefed on the services under the Rice Competitiveness Enhancement Fund (RCEF) through a series of information caravans nationwide.
This was led by the Agricultural Training Institute’s (ATI) network of training centers, in close coordination with the regional field offices of the Department of Agriculture and the concerned local government units.
Different Learning Sites for Agriculture (LSAs) supported by the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) are set to promote their products and services during AgriLink/FoodLink/AquaLink 2019.
The three-day event bears the theme “Climate Resilient Agriculture: A Must for Region 8.” It aims to provide an avenue to showcase products, information, technologies, market linkages, and promotions to the whole agribusiness community and the general public.
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.
