May 29 – 30, 2014 – In partnership with the Department of Science and Technology Region III (DOST-III), CLEARVISION OUTSOURCING CONSULTANTS is conducting a knowledge-sharing program designed to assist aquaculture and horticulture farmers in the provinces within Region 3 in the island of Luzon, Philippines, called the Consultancy for Agricultural Productivity Enhancement (CAPE) Program .
Part of the CAPE Program is the provision of training-seminars for the farmers, farm owners, managers, and CAPE Beneficiaries within the region. For the two days of the training-seminars, aquaculture experts from University of the Philippines, Visayas, under the leadership of Prof. Valeriano Corre, Jr., were invited to provide Aquaculture Training to all CAPE farmers/beneficiaries, sharing knowledge and information on modern farming techniques and technology available in the country.
The first day of the training-seminar was held in the Olongapo City Hall, in the province of Zambales, with participants from the provinces of Bataan and Zambales. The second day of the training-seminar was held in the City of San Fernando, Pampanga, with CAPE beneficiaries and farmers from the provinces of Bulacan and Pampanga.
The two days of the training-seminars became a venue for the discussion of effective aquaculture methodologies, potential improvements to the current practices of the farmers along with the experts’ recommendations. The training-seminars ended on a very promising tone, with the farmers and CAPE beneficiaries becoming more open to modern day practices and cost-effective farming techniques.
