DILIMAN, Quezon City—The Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) vows to be in the forefront of agricultural productivity through harmonized and proactive extension services as it celebrates its 32nd founding anniversary this year.

In his message during the anniversary program, ATI Director Alfredo Aton thanked all the Institute’s personnel for working productively and consistently meeting targets in response to the growing needs of farmers and fishers.

“I believe that the accomplishments of this Institute are the results of the combined efforts of all employees who have been working with excellence and passion,” Aton remarked.

He, likewise, encouraged everyone to help each other in upholding the Institute’s humble beginnings and build on the lessons of the past.
