March 21, 2019

[BUTUAN, Agusan del Norte, March 21] – Some 800 Junior and Senior High School students from 16 schools in the Caraga Region recently converged at Dottie’s Place in Butuan City to attend the Information Caravan organized by the Department of Agriculture - Agriculture and Fisheries Information Division (DA-AFID).

The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR)-Caraga, together with other DA-attached agencies, joined and supported the caravan by providing technical assistance and distributing Information, Education and Communication (IEC) materials to interested participants.

At the activity area, the students had fun with some games and prizes, including fishing at BFAR’s Fish Poles.

With the theme, ‘Kabataan sa Agrikultura Para sa Bayang Masagana,’ this year’s Caravan was designed to encourage students to pursue a career in agriculture. Lectures about agri-related business opportunities from high value crops was shared by Dalinda Mollanida of DA-RO13, while Dr. Jasmine Reyes of Philippine Rice Research Institute explained why one should appreciate the need for agriculture.

According to Dr. Reyes, “Ang magsasaka ang nagpapakain sa atin. A farmer is needed 3 to 5 times a day as we eat at an average of 3 times daily.”

Dr. Rodolfo Estigoy, Philippine Center for Postharvest Development and Mechanization's Chief Science Research Specialist, discussed on the latest farming technologies.

The information caravan in Butuan was the third of the six caravans to be conducted by the DA in various parts of the country. Earlier, it conducted information caravans in Legazpi and General Santos City. It will also hold similar caravans in Calapan, Cagayan Valley and Ormoc.
