Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer Vic M. Ines said the trainings on AES were conducted to improve farmers’ rice production through introduction of modern farm technologies.
“We established demonstration farms in Piddig, Burgos and Currimao where we held the trainings and workshops to the farmers. This way, we were able to monitor their developments in the 10-month course,” explained Ines.
Ines said the farmers participating in the BDS training were instructed on policy formulation, marketing and business management.
“There were 29 farmers who completed the course on AES, while 70 farmers successfully graduated from the BDS training,” said Ines.
The AES and BDS trainings were conducted by the Program Beneficiaries Development Division (PBDD) and implemented under the Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCCESS). (Jorge P. Guerrero)
