PASAY CITY, Metro Manila-- With its efforts to extend the services closer to the clients, the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) showcased its prime services, technologies and linkages during the recently concluded AgriLink 2015.

Garnering a total number of 1,470 registered clients in three days, ATI disseminated roughly 100,000 copies of its Information, Education and Communication (IEC) materials to the visiting farmers and agricultural enthusiasts. The IECs are in the form of leaflets, pamphlets and booklets focusing on ATI’s agricultural services, and farming and fishing technologies.

Private sectors with featured products about agricultural chemicals, animal housing and breeding, animal health and nutrition, aquaculture equipment and inputs, communication and information technology, dairy products, equipment and machinery, facilities on cooking and storage, facilities on post-harvest and many more also joined the event.
