DILIMAN, Quezon City—Twenty three young farmers from different regions in the country complete this year's batch of the Young Filipino Farm Leaders Training Program in Japan (YFFLTPJ).
Specifically, seventeen male and six female trainees were qualified for the program. This is part of the continuing partnership of the Department of Agriculture (DA), through the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI), and the Japan Agricultural Exchange Council (JAEC).
Key ATI and JAEC officials gave some reminders as the trainees start the 75-day Pre-departure Orientation Course (PDOC).
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.
