Programs Behind Farmer’s Agricultural Organization

Background of the Study

The goal of sustainable agriculture is to meet

society’s food and textile needs in the present without
compromising the ability of future generations to meet
their own needs. Practitioners of sustainable agriculture
seek to integrate three main objectives into their work: a
healthy environment, economic profitability, and social and
economic equity. Every person involved in the food system—
growers, food processors, distributors, retailers,
consumers, and waste managers—can play a role in ensuring a
sustainable agricultural system.

There are many practices commonly used by people

working in sustainable agriculture and sustainable food
systems. Growers may use methods to promote soil health,
minimize water use, and lower pollution levels on the farm.
Consumers and retailers concerned with sustainability can
look for “values-based” foods that are grown using methods
promoting farmworker wellbeing, that are environmentally
friendly, or that strengthen the local economy. And
researchers in sustainable agriculture often cross
disciplinary lines with their work: combining biology,
economics, engineering, chemistry, community development,
and many others. However, sustainable agriculture is more
than a collection of practices. It is also process of
negotiation: a push and pull between the sometimes
competing interests of an individual farmer or of people in
a community as they work to solve complex problems about
how we grow our food and fiber.

According to Fao (2013), there are a lot of programs

established by the different Agricultural Institutions to
help the farmer’s in their progress. The Philippine
Agricultural Training Institute has established different
programs in order to help the farmer’s in their livelihood.
In the commodity-based specifically on rice production they
had the program “Agricultural Development Officers
Community” (AgRiDOC). This program aims to ensure the
future agricultural extension by producing a new breed of
extension and development officers through this initiative
under the research project on “Improving Technology
Promotion and Delivery through Capability Enhancement of
the Next Generation of Rice Extension Professionals and
other Intermediates” or IPAD. This had been possible
through the collaboration with the Department of
Agriculture (DA Rice Program, Philippine Rice
Institute(PhilRice)and International Rice Research
Institute(IRRI).They also had the Training of Trainers,
this program conducts training programs on various
technologies on rice production for Agricultural Extension

Programs Behind Farmer’s Agricultural Organization

Workers(AEWs) who, in turn, will equip rice farmer’s with

new knowledge, attitude and skills. And they also have the
Season-long Training. This provides intensive training
programs for AEWs and farmer’s which include hands-on
activities on land preparation, crop management, machinery
operation, among others. And when it refers to Corn and
Cassava there are also programs that are established just
like the Farmer-Scientist Training Program (FTSP). This
program aims to uplift the condition of the poor farmer’s
through this corn-based partnership program for sustainable
agricultural development. This is an integrative three-
phase agricultural research, development and extension
methodology. It capacitates these farmers on becoming
farmer-scientists by providing training on various
development and farming technologies. They also have School
on the Air which offers a distance learning programs
through radio on the complete package of technology on corn
production for farmers. They also have the Training of
Trainers just like in the Rice Production which also has
the same functions. Another is National Corn Progress which
convenes corn industry stakeholders annually to generate
new insights and recommendations towards enhanced
competitiveness. In High Value Crops they have also
established Training Programs on Good Agricultural
Practices (GAP). This program ensures continuous learning
among our farmers in terms of applying GAP methods and
techniques in the production of Cacao, Banana, Mango,
Highland vegetables, lowland vegetables and other high
value crops. In the Organic Agriculture, Capability-
building Program is one that ensures the development in the
practice of organic agriculture in the country in line with
the Organic Agriculture Act of 2010(Republic Act No.10068),

Programs Behind Farmer’s Agricultural Organization

This also provides support to and conduct seminars and

training activities on organic farming leading to National
Certificate II in collaboration with TESDA. They also have
National Organic Agricultural Congress. In collaboration
with the DA and the Bureau of Agriculture and Fishery
Standards, they gather various stakeholders in organic
agriculture in this annual event launched in 2003 to
promote sustainable and healthy farming and showcase
success stories of organic farming practitioners. And the
Extension Grants for Extension Service Providers in which
they accredits private ESPs to provide a variety of
extension activities to the stakeholders on organic
agriculture as well as hasten and improve public-private
partnership on extension services. And when it refers to
Urban Agriculture they also have the program Street
Caravans in which they hold seminar series in barangays in
different cities to engage households in the food
sustainability efforts. They also visit schools to provide
the awareness of the students about farming and increase
their appreciation towards agriculture as a viable source
of food sustenance of the generation. When referring to
Livestock this training institute ensures the continuous
development of the livestock industry through their various
training initiatives that provide the stakeholders up-tp-
date knowledge, attitude and skills on Halal, pig husbandry
and others. And lastly, when referring to Social
Technologies they have the program Extension Management
which, through the provision of training, they equip the
staff from Local Government Units (LGUs) with working
knowledge and skills to become effective leaders and
extension managers in adapting to change, overcoming
resistance and adopting innovative and efficient management

techniques to remain high performers. They also have the

program Agri Mechanization. By virtue of Republic Act 10601
or the Agriculture and Fisheries Mechanization (AFMech)
Law, they provide support services to promote the
development and adoption of modern, appropriate, cost-
effective and environmentally safe agricultural and
fisheries machinery and equipment. And the Special Concerns
Program which recognizes the contribution of the persons
with disabilities, senior citizens and indigenous people in
nation building, we conduct a series of lectures and
training on sustainable agriculture and livelihood

According to Santos (2015), aside from the programs that

focuses on the production of farmer’s there are also a lot
of extension services programs that also help in the
production and progress of farming. One of them is the
Private Extension Service Providers (P-ESPs).As part of the
Extension Accreditation Services component of our
ladderized approach to extension, they encourage individual
LSPA I and LPSA II farmer/farm family operators to form an
“organization/network of extension service providers” to
enable them to apply for accreditation as our P-ESPs.
Considered as full-fledged extension agencies, P-ESPs are
better equipped as their partners in the provision of
extension services to farmers/fishers and their
organizations. Another program is the Big Brother-Small
Brother Extension Partnership Scheme on Farm Tourism that
aims to boost the farm tourism industry in the country,
they encourage LSPA owners and operators as “big brothers”
who adopt small farmers as “small brothers” and capacitate
them with ASK and eventually become their partners in

Programs Behind Farmer’s Agricultural Organization

agribusiness.This is in compliance with the provisions of

Section 91 of the Implementing Rules and Regulations of the
Republic Act No. 8435 or the Agriculture and Fisheries
Modernization Act and per DA Administrative Order No. 22,
Series of 2008.

According to the Philippine Agricultural Training Institute

(2015) there are also Partnership and Programs which offers
big help to our farmers. One of the partnerships is the
Malitubog-Maridagao Irrigation Project. In partnership with
the National Irrigation Association, they provide training
and technical assistance on sustainable rice production to
members of the Irrigators Association in Autonomous Region
in Muslim Mindanao and Region XII. Another is the Better
Rice Initiatives in Asia in which they provide training on
value chains, basic agriculture, rice specific farming
techniques and enhanced methods on training delivery to
Agricultural Extension Workers and lead farmers in Iloilo,
Aurora and Southern Leyte. Another is the Weather Index
Based Insurance that focuses on strengthening the
capacities of our farmers and farmer associations to
increase resilience of agricultural production,they provide
training/ briefings on Farmers' Decision Support System,
Good Agricultural Practices, and Climate-Smart Farmers'
School. Then the ASEAN Sectoral Working Group on
Agricultural Training and Extension, in contribution to the
total development of human capital in the agricultural and
fisheries sector, we provide training and extension on
crops, fisheries and livestock, as well as disseminating
technologies in various commodities. And lastly they also
established the Project for Strengthening Capacity Building
in Agriculture Sector in ASEAN countries Phase 2 (CB

Programs Behind Farmer’s Agricultural Organization

Project 2) which enhances the capabilities of agriculture-

related practitioners and officials in ASEAN member states
through training courses, seminar, and dispatch of Japanese
experts funded by the ASEAN- Ministry of Agriculture,
Forestry and Fisheries.


According to Filler (2013), agriculture had been a

great source of livelihood in some countries all over the
world specifically in Canada and as their agriculture
continues to grow, many programs are also created to
support their progress. One of them is the Advance Payment
Program which provides producers with a cash advance on the
values of their agricultural products. And this program
specifically focuses on farmer’s and food producers and to
young farmers or new entrants. Another program is
AgriCompetitiveness Program which provides matching
contributions to help the agricultural sector to leverage,
coordinate and build on existing capacity, share best
practices, provide mentorship opportunities, as well as
agriculture awareness, farm business management and farm
safety information and tools. This program provides funding
to the sector to promote the benefits of a career in
agriculture and to enhance the public's perception of
agriculture and its role in the economy.Another is Canadian
Agriculture Loans Act Program which provides financial loan
guarantees to farmers and agricultural co-operatives in
order to establish, improve, and develop farms. They also
have program that focuses on livestock just like Canadian
Animal Genetic Resources that aims to preserve the genetic
diversity of Canadian livestock and poultry breeds, and to

Programs Behind Farmer’s Agricultural Organization

develop new techniques to conserve germplasm. Another is

the Community pasture Program which conserves the land
resource, protecting it from deterioration due to drought
while utilizing the land primarily for the grazing and
breeding of livestock. They also have the program Dairy
Farm Investment Program where dairy farmers can receive up
to $100 000 for targeted investments in farm technologies
and upgrades to equipment that improve productivity. They
also have the program Farm Debt Mediation Service in which
they provide financial counseling and mediation services to
farmers in financial difficulty. And lastly the Minor Use
Pesticides Program that works with producers, the
provinces, Health Canada's Pest Management Regulatory
Agency, pesticide manufacturers and the U.S. IR-4 Project
to establish producer-selected pest problems on minor
crops, match them with pesticides and prepare regulatory
submissions for new minor uses of pesticides.

condition then it is not favorable while the positive
impact is when the land preparation and climatic condition
is warrant or favorable to a certain crop, whether it is a
fruit tree, vegetable or livestock.

4. There is no government program that can improve the

productivity of the farmers somehow, the farmer’s lack of
technical knowledge to improve their productivity in terms
of crop or animals in production is the problem why there
are no progress in production.

Dear Ma’am,

We are presently conducting our Research Paper

entitled “Programs Behind Farmer’s Agricultural
Organizations” in the Municipality of Tigbauan as a
requirement in our subject Practical Research 1 at Tigbauan
National High School.

In connection with this, may we have the honor to

request permission to administer an interview with you on
the different programs behind the Farmer’s Agricultural
Organization on February 28, 2019 at 1:30 p.m.

Rest assured that all information will be treated with

utmost care and will be considered confidential.

We are hoping that this request merits your favorable

action. Thank you very much and God Bless.

Respectfully yours,
