ATI-RTC II Awards Climate Resilient Livelihood Support to Uyugan Farmers

ATI-RTC II Awards Climate Resilient Livelihood Support to Uyugan Farmers

UYUGAN, Batanes.  Major problem of the farmers of Uyugan, Batanes is the shortage of water for the irrigation of their crops.  They usually experienced drought thus, they wanted to have their own rain collector to address the problem.
In response to helping farmers become resilient to climate change, the Agricultural Training Institute – Regional Training Center II (ATI-RTC II) provided support to 12 farmers of Uyugan, Batanes for the establishment of rain collector. 
The awarding of the said support was conducted on May 25, 2017 at the Municipal Hall, Uyugan, Batanes.  It was graced by Ms. Thelma Austria, Development Management Officer IV of ATI Career Development and Management Division and the Provincial Agriculturist of Batanes, Mr. Cesar Doroteo Hostalero. 
Ms. Austria said in her message that the support is just part of the services of ATI in its slogan of excellent extension services beyond boundaries.  “We also have big brother-small brother program wherein we encouraged big time farmers to help small farmers.  As such, we also encourage you to help your co-farmers especially in your neighboring farms to share your rain collector in irrigating their crops,” Austria urged. 
Meanwhile, Mr. Hostalero said that the rain collector is a big help to the farmers for everyone needs domestic water for crop production.  “With the assistance, we hope your production will increase and share it also to your neighboring farmers,” Hostallero said. 
Mayor Jonathan Enrique Nanud thanked ATI for the support and he encouraged farmers to use the rain collector efficiently.  He also said, “Let us pray that there is rain so that you can store rain water for use during drought.”
The rain collector is a 2x4-meter concrete collector that can store 80 drums of rain water enough to irrigate the crops of the farmers.
