ATI-USM Partnership in Extension Endures

The Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) recently renewed its partnership with the University of Southern Mindanao (USM) for agricultural extension works in Region XII. ATI and USM officials, led respectively by OIC Director Luz Taposok and President Francisco Gil Garcia, signed a Memorandum of Agreement last May 18, 2017 for the former’s continued and free use of the 3.19-hectare land in the USM campus for its satellite office and training facilities.

ATI, DOT Work Hand-in-hand in Promoting Farm Tourism

Aside from boosting the influx of tourists to local farms, “Farm Tourism” likewise advocates knowledge on agricultural practices in the country that will encourage more active involvement in the agriculture and fisheries sector. Moreover, it opens up opportunities for farmer-producers to market their products by connecting them directly to potential niche markets.
