Agri Regional Center hosted AFMECH Law Consultation
Tagbilaran City, Bohol. As the need for agri-fisheries mechanization is arising, the Agricultural Training Institute found the necessity to conduct Agriculture and Fisheries Mechanization Law Consultation. This is to increase awareness and gather consultative solutions to existing issues on farm operations to become easier and more productive.
Last February 22, 2017, ATI RTC7 headed by Dr. Carolyn May O. Daquio, ATI 7 Training Center Superintendent II with its project officer, Engr. Rizaldy Mercadal, ATI 7 Agriculturist II, held the said consultation together with concerned LGUs, government agencies and SUCs at Panda Tea Garden, Dao District, Tagbilaran City, Bohol. It was attended by 46 agricultural engineers, professors and farm operators combined.
Discussion on what is AFMECH law all about, different crop processing innovations and its relation to soil and water conservation are the highlights for this one-day event. Before it ended, attendees came with lists of issues and probable solutions to promote and implement AFMECH Law in the province of Bohol.
Furthermore, everyone were excited with the implementation of the law envisioning that the farmers will have easier access to farm machineries and its service centres like other industries. ATI RTC 7 assures everyone that this is not the last time they will extend service to pursue the upgraded mechanization in the whole region.
