The Agricultural Training Institute’s (ATI) role as the DA’s extension and training arm was strengthened with the Republic Act 8435 or the Agriculture and Fisheries Modernization Act (AFMA) of 1997. But in November 1998, the RFTCs were turned over to the Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources. Also, the FTCs were renamed Provincial Training Centers.
As the extension and training arm of the Philippine Department of Agriculture, ATI is geographically situated nationwide to be able to reach its target clientele in the agriculture and fisheries sector. In ATI-RTC IX, it is located at Oval Complex, Sagun St., San Francisco District, Pagadian City.
