A total of 560 farmers graduated from the School On-the-Air (SOA) for Organic Vegetable Production on Thursday at Culianan Covered Court in Zamboanga City.
The SOA spearheaded by the Agricultural Training Institute IX (ATI-9) in partnership with the Department of Agriculture IX and the Office of the City Agriculturist started in May 2018. The SOA participants came from the six agricultural districts in the city, namely Tumaga, Ayala, Culianan, Manicahan, Curuan and Vitali. The farmer-students enrolled at their respective Field offices and were required to listen to a 30-minute radio program every Sunday over DXRZ-RMN from May – August 2018. Each farmer-student submits their pre-test and exam to their respective field offices.
