DWNS 96.5 UFM started airing the Department of Agriculture's (DA) School-on-the Air (SOA) regarding Climate Smart Agriculture cum Hybrid Rice Production, also referred to as the "Kaalamang Pagsasaka sa Himpapawid," as part of its special programs early March this year. Dubbed as "the biggest of its kind", the SOA is expected to cater to over 10,000 farmers all over Cagayan, Isabela, Quirino and Nueva Vizcaya.

The said SOA aims to discuss how to mitigate the effects of climate change and the importance of using hybrid rice in achieving higher yield and income and improve the lives of farmers and fisher folks in the country.

Further, the program is one of the Agricultural Training Institute's (ATI) distance learning on the complete package course of technology of a commodity and other agriculture and fisheries related subject matter. It is a series of radio programs, presenting the subject matter systematically and in a progressive manner, aired for a period of not less than six months.

At the end of the course, a graduation will be held, where certificates will be given to the enrollees who have met the course requirements.


During an interview in one of UFM's morning program, Hector U. Tabbun, Chief of the Regional Agriculture and Fisheries Information Section (RAFIS) of the DA and Catherine S. Jimenes, Information Officer I of RAFIS, personally invited the local farmers to take part and enroll in the program. They also expressed their appreciation towards NVSU President, Dr. Andres Z. Taguiam, for his support to the department, "nakita ko po ang support ninyo, from the launching hanggang sa implementation ng programang ito, kaya maraming salamat po." Said Tabbun.

NVSU Radio DWNS 96.5 UFM forged a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with the Department of Agriculture Regional Field Office No. 02 (DA-RF02) and partner agencies early this year.

"Kaalamang Pasasaka sa Himpapawid" airs at NVSU Radio DWNS 96.5 UFM every Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays at 6:30 in the morning and will be replayed at 12:00 noon. Each session will run 15 to 30 minutes long. The SOA is expected to end in July this year.

A pretest is given before airing the lessons to determine the level of knowledge of enrollees on the subject matter, while a post-test will be administered after all the lessons have been aired to determine the knowledge gain of the listeners.

Research is conducted to determine the information needs and characteristics of the target groups or community and to evaluate the acceptance and impact of the SOA.
