Pampangueño farmers learn through rice-on-air
35 farmers in Pampanga recently finished a course on rice and rice-based farming technologies through School-on-Air titled “Maparalang Ortelanu”, which means wise farmers in Filipino.
School-on-Air is a collaborative initiative of the Department of Agriculture (DA) Regional Field Office 3 (DA-RFO-3) and Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice).
Armando G. Urbano, one of the top achievers, thanked both agencies for the initiative as they learned several technologies that they could apply to their farm.
During the graduation ceremony held at Bambang, Pampanga, DA-RFO-3 Regional OIC-Executive Director Roy Abaya expressed his gratitude to the farmers who participated in the said program and he encouraged them to apply and share what they have learned to their fellow farmers.
