Figuratively, comparing a farmer’s success with a caterpillar’s transformation, the book “MORPHOSES: ATI’s Treasury of Inspiring Stories” introduces readers into the lives and successes of farmers and extension workers from the different places in the Philippines. These stories speak of what the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) stands for – transforming lives through quality extension services.
Going beyond championing the successes, the book also reflects the challenges, failures and setbacks of ATI’s partners for development. Hence, it is divided into seven (7) major categories: Agri-Business, Agri-Extension, Family Farming, High Value, Organic Farming, Rice, and Young Farmer. Each category contains stories written by Information Officers, Media Production Specialists, Agriculturists, Development Officers and other technical staff of ATI’s Central Office and network of Training Centers.
