BATAC CITY–Some 575 farmers from 16 municipalities in Ilocos Norte are now equipped with the latest production technologies on high-value commercial crops and livestock, which they can apply in their farms.

The farmers learned these through the school-on-the-air (SOA) program jointly initiated by the Mariano Marcos State University (MMSU) in this city, the Ilocos Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Research and Development Consortium (ILAARRDEC), the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic, and Natural Resources Research and Development (PCAARRD), Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice), and the Philippine Broadcasting Service (PBS).

Aired over government-owned DWFB Radyo Pilipinas in Laoag City and DWCI Radyo Piddig, the SOA ran for six months , or from May to Novemeber this year, and were hosted by a farmcaster from the MMSU’s Extension Directorate.
