CROP RESEARCH AND PRODUCTION SUPPORT DIVISION

 

crop production

The Crop Research and Production Support Division (CRPSD)is a unit within the Bureau of Plant Industry primarily tasked to handle two of the agency’s most crucial functions: research and development (R&D) and production support. The CRPSDtakes the lead in conducting relevant and quality research activities to ensure national competitiveness in the face of the demands of an increasingly globalized agricultural economy. The Division further translates its technical capacities and services to harness plant production for the benefit of every Filipino farmer and consumer.

The CRPSD’s research efforts have resulted to the discovery of new crop varieties or strains that improves our harvest rates and plant material quality. The Division reproduces and distributes these new varieties for planting by our local farmersas part of our initiatives to harness dynamism in the Philippine plant industry. The CRPSD also envisions a vibrant plant research culture in the country by placing its strategic thrust on the conservation of Plant Genetic Resources (PGR) found in the Philippines.The Division is also instrumental in the performance of major functions in the implementation of the National Framework of the Plant Genetic Resources for Food and Agriculture of the country as a key policy tool in the advancement of our local agricultural sector.

The Division plays an important role in production support through the institution of mechanisms that ensure the availability and utilization of quality planting materials, consistent with the principles of good production methods. Inspired by its vision to highlight the Philippine fruit industry as a source of national pride for its world-class quality, the CRPSD has exercised responsibility over variety registration accreditation and accreditation of plant nurseries as major regulatory mechanisms in plant quality control.The Division has accredited several plant nurseries and monitored their compliance to existing standards and requirements for continuous accreditation.The CRPSD also monitors the production and distribution of seeds and other plant materials that reflect our genuine commitment to help our farmers.

In line with the principles of good governance in the context of climate change and disaster risk management, the CRPSD also assists the Department of Agriculture in providing quality seed and plant materials during calamities.
