25 farmers finish 29-day agri training program

At least 25 trainees of the Organic Agriculture Production (OAP) National Certificate (NC) II under the Tulong Trabaho Scholarship Program (TTSP) successfully capped their 29-day training program with a bountiful harvest festival in a demonstration farm of the Ifugao State University (IFSU) on February 8, 2022.

Through the Training and Competency Assessment Center (TCAC) of the University, farmers were equipped with knowledge on sustainable farming technologies to help them provide safe food and create economic opportunities for themselves and their families.

The OAP NC II Qualification trains farmers in producing organic farm products including organic supplements such as fertilizer, concoctions, and extracts; applying safety measures in farm operations; performing estimations and calculations; record keeping; among others.

Since its inception in 2017, the OAP NCII program at IFSU – TCAC has trained more than a hundred farmers and continues to accommodate more from the local communities.

Grantees are entitled to receive an amount of P160.00 for their daily allowance. They are also given freebies which include school uniforms, school ID, and internet allowance.

TCAC, in partnership with the Technical Education and Skills Development Authority (TESDA)-Ifugao, also offers Agricultural Crops Production (ACP) NC II, NC III, apart from OAP NCII.
