The Farmer of the Farmers' Contact Center

"How do you define a farmer in the context of the Farmers' Contact Center?" This was raised during the Regional Workshop on the Knowledgebase Creation for A&F on September 16-17, 2009 at La Rica Hotel, Tacloban City.

Considering the state of most of our farmers, the following queries keep popping in my mind: Do our farmers (common farmers) really have access to telephone lines and internet? Do they have time to avail of this service, knowing that most often they are busy in their fields? Do they know how to use these technologies?


ATI Today

Extension services continue to evolve. With the challenges that extension workers and farmers face, the Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) continues to explore various strategies to improve its efforts as the extension and training arm of the Department of Agriculture. In over 30 years, the ATI has celebrated various successes and learned from the lessons during hard times. Nonetheless, we are proud to be standing the test of time through the support of our partners and the clientele themselves. This is the ATI Today, more committed to bring you extension services beyond boundaries.
