Rationale and Brief Description of the Training

The BU-DAR ARCCESS Project: Market-Oriented Agri-Technology and Agri-Extension


Services is a support service delivery mechanism of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR)
created to contribute to the overall goal of rural poverty reduction particularly in agrarian reform

areas. It aimed at improving the farm and off-farm incomes of Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries
(ARBs) through their organizations. It organizes the production, post-harvest, processing,
logistics, and marketing activities of ARBOs, provides common service facilities, and incubates
the agri-enterprise in order to improve farm yields, reduce inefficiencies, and achieve production
volume. Also, prioritizes organizationally-mature ARBOs that will serve as hub or center of
support services not only for their own needs but those of other ARBOs and ARBs in the
community as well
The project seeks to procure agri-technology and agri-extension providers to assist the
ARBOs. Agri-technology is the conduct of research and development on agricultural production
and processing to develop novel farm products. Agri-extension is the application of scientific
research and new knowledge to agricultural practices through farmer education and other
communication and learning activities.
One of the key component-activities of the Project is the training and coaching of Farmer
Technicians. This involves the transfer of knowledge and skills to selected ARBs who will form
part of a pool of trainors/coach. These farmer-technicians, in partnership with the CBEOs, should
be able to continue the coaching and sustain the technology transfer activities within the ARBOs
and community. Additional output shall be a training plan to be executed by the farmertechnicians.
The training and deployment of Farmer Technicians in the DAR ARCCESS project sites
is considered and important strategy to ensure successful implementation and sustainability of
the project. For one, the deployment of these technicians will address the gap of the inadequacy
of manpower confronting the Department of Agriculture (DA) and the Local Government Units
(LGUs) in its program of promoting or enhancing the adoption of technologies to improve farm
production and income.
Recently, DA has embarked on identifying, training, and deploying the so Local Farmer
Technicians (LFTs) to address the said gap more particularly to ensure success of its Food Staple
Sufficiency Program (FSSP). Accordingly, Training design and program had already been
developed by the Department through the Agricultural Training Institute (DA-ATI). Hence for
practical reason and to make ARCCESS initiatives keep pace with this national agendum, the
training for the Farmer Technicians is aligned long this initiative and with the mechanization
aspect being given due emphasis. It has been recognized that low agricultural productivity and
profitability in the Philippines may be partly traceable to the poor adoption of mechanization
strategy in the production, harvesting and post-production processes among the farmers.
Moreover, aligning the Training to the LFT initiative of the DA shall also ensure faster and more
meaningful institutionalization of the Farmer Technicians within the structure of the LGUs and
hence of importance to the Cooperatives as well in the DAR agrarian reform areas.
This training will have two basic topical components: a) the agricultural extension
competency development and b) farming competency development. These two basic
competencies shall enable the Farmer Technician to perform his role as change agent for the
promotion of appropriate farming technologies and practices and as technical persons equipped

with adequate know-how on the latest technologies and practices in crop production, processing
and marketing along the priority crop and /or commodity of their cooperative. An added on
feature of the training design is to bring the participants to an exposure trip where they could
have actual observation of new technologies/practices related to their economic/farm project and
at the same time give them a chance to interact with farmers who are already farmer technicians
themselves in their own locality. This strategy is believed to facilitate the teaching-learning
process and further encourage and inspire them to become farmer technicians also in their own
place.
This training program incorporates another major training that must be designed and
conducted under the Project, i.e. Farm Planning.
