ATI to do more ‘vibrant’ extension services
The Department of Agriculture’s (DA) Agricultural Training Institute (ATI) said it will bring its extension services further along the lines of productivity and advancement.
This, as the agency celebrated its achievements leading to its 33rd founding anniversary.
“After reaching more than 85,000 stakeholders in 2019, with over 2,500 training programs and learning activities implemented, the Institute is set to empower more farmers, fishers, agricultural extension workers, and other players in the agricultural value chain,” ATI said in a statement.
For 2020, the Institute devised new extension strategies anchored on an improved thematic scheme, dubbed as “Extension LEADS: Learn, Exhibit, Advise, Disseminate, and Support.”
This will focus on the continuous provision of training services, technology demonstration, farm business advisory, access to agri-related information, and further assistance to extension policy-making.
