piaTUGUEGARAO CITY, Cagayan, June 4 (PIA)---The Department Agrarian Reform (DAR) here has conducted a six-month training to 46 farmers from selected Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Organizations (ARBOs) in Quirino province.

The training was designed to develop and enhance the knowledge and skills of farmers who will serve as trainers of other farmers within their community for the implementation of DAR’s Agri-Extension Service (AES).

After the training, the participants joined in the Field Exposure Trip held in Quirino Experimental Station at Dungo, Aglipay, Quirino headed by Dr. Fredisminda M. Dolohan, Team Leader of ARCCESS.

The participants witnessed the modern farming technology on high value crops and livestock production particularly in goat, cattle and pecking duck raising.

On May 23, 2014, the farmer-trainers formally graduated from the season-long training where they are expected to share their knowledge and skills to other farmers in their communities. (Raiza Madelle C. Ramos, DAR/ALM-PIA2)
