The signing of the IRR by the agencies involved--Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (DOST-PCAARRD) and the DA- Agricultural Training Institute (DA-ATI) was the rationale behind the conduct of the formal turnover of the program. The formal turnover involved the transfer of program documents like the Manual of Operations, list of Farmers Information and Technology Services (FITS) Centers and their status, and the list of Magsasaka Siyentista (MS) among others.
