ABUCAY, Bataan—Farmers in the provinces of Bataan and Zambales were trained by the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) to become paratechnicians.

Provincial Agrarian Reform Officer (PARO) Engr. Eric San Luis said 25 farmers from Bataan and another 25 from Zambales have completed trainings conducted by a professional service provider hired by their agency.  San Luis is PARO of both Bataan and Zambales.

He explained that 5 modules were developed by the professional service provider for specific crops. He said one module for a particular crop has been taught to at least 5 farmers. “Farmers have specific practices in growing particular crop, the role of the professional service provider is to develop a module to ensure productivity”, the PARO added. Palay and camote are two of the crops with modules developed.

San Luis pointed out that trained farmers to become paratechnicians can in turn train other farmers in their respective areas. Trained farmers in Bataan came from the towns of Bagac and Dinalupihan. There will be separate graduation ceremonies for trained farmers from the two provinces.
