Twenty Rice Specialists’ Training Course (RSTC) and 96 Farmer Field School (FFS) participants have completed their training on the latest farm technologies.

The trainees from Regions 10, 11, and 13 are now specialists in the production of high-quality inbred rice, seed certification, and farm mechanization.

RSTC participants work in the DA-Regional Field Office, Office of the Provincial Agriculturist, Municipal Agriculture Office, Farmers’ Cooperatives and Associations, and accredited farm schools of the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority. Meanwhile, FFS enrollees are from the barangays of Butuan City.

Provincial Soils Coordinator of the Surigao del Sur Agricultural Office and a graduate of the RSTC Ellen Mae C. Orcullo, shared that despite having second thoughts on accepting the invitation, she’s very thankful to DA-PhilRice Agusan for giving her the opportunity to join the training.

“I encourage everyone who will be offered to join this training to not be hesitant because the training won’t only be useful for your career, it will also help you develop as a person,” Ellen advised.

This training is an initiative of the Rice Competitiveness Enhancement FundRice Extension Services Program.

Training Coordinator Alona P. Tape explained she couldn’t find any other approach in conducting the training that could compensate for the face-to-face learning system, which is why she opted for it following minimum health protocols.
