LA TRINIDAD, BENGUET. The year 2020 brought new opportunities for the ATI-CAR to deliver extension services beyond the usual modes the Center has been doing for the previous year. Although the COVID-19 pandemic delimits the implementation of the approved WFP for CY 2020, it facilitated new interventions and innovations to deliver extension services for ATI-CAR.
In an effort to reach-out to clients amidst the challenges brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, ATI-CAR launched its own radio program dubbed as “ATIng Kaalaman sa Agrikultura.” The radio program, which is the first in ATI-CAR, is part of the modalities that the Center has implemented in its intensified information dissemination drive geared to bridge and overcome the challenges brought by the pandemic in the delivery of extension services.
