M’LANG, Cotabato- Time is changing so fast that a farmer who cannot adapt will be left behind. This is one of the very reasons why the Agricultural Training Institute XII implemented the Palayamanan Plus Program. It is to instill to farmers the benefits of going into integrated and diversified farming and disregard the age old idea of monocropping.

On February 13-14, 2020, 49 individuals from Mlang, Cotabato received an extension support from the Palayamanan Plus Program. This intervention is the Training on Mushroom Production which was held at Brgy. Langkong, Mlang, Cotabato.

Mushroom production is booming in Region XII and the center would like to take advantage of this to teach other interested group of farmers the basics of this technology.

During the 2-day training, lectures on mushroom and spawn production, and tissue culture were delivered. Also, hands-on actual activities were conducted for the participants to better grasp the technology.

"In this training, with Dr. Abrazado as our Resource Person, we truly appreciate her teaching method. All of us were able to do a practicum and hands-on activity" said Mr. Ronilo Barrios, one of the successful completer of the course, during the graduation program.
