In its continuing commitment of providing technical and material assistance to farmers in the countryside, the Bureau of Plant Industry-La Granja National Crop Research, Development and Production Support Center in partnership with the Negros Nine Human Development Foundation, Inc. (NNHDFI) conducted a training on Organic Production of Cereals and Field Legumes from March 16 to 17, 2017 at San Columbano Training Center, Sitio Bantolinao, Barangay Tan-awan, Kabankalan City, Negros Occidental.

 BPI-La Granja NCRDPSC technical staff gave lectures on organic practices to equip the  49 participants with knowledge and skills on best practices for organic cereals and field legumes and provide them with information on organic agriculture as well as how to become a certified organic farm.  In addition, a technology demo on soybean utilization such as making of soybean patties, soymilk, tokwa and polvoron was conducted.

Hands-on field demo was done on the second day wherein the participants planted corn, upland rice, mungbean, soybean and peanut following  the recommended practices lectured during the previous day.

 During the closing ceremony, BPI-La Granja NCRDPSC Center Chief Ms. Milagros B. Abaquita reiterated the importance of Organic Agriculture in crop production as well as in health and wellness.  Rev. Father Brian Gore, President of Negros Nine Human Development Foundation, Inc. encouraged the farmer participants to improve their farming practices especially that they have been provided with technical information and material assistance (organic corn, rice, soybean, mungbean and peanut seeds).    

This is also the start of partnership between BPI-La Granja NCRDPSC and Negros Nine Human Development Foundation, Inc. Two succeeding trainings will be conducted next quarter to further strengthen the technical know how and skills of organic farmers and increase their productivity and in time achieve food security.   (Written by: Doris Paz I.

BPI 2017-2022 STRATPLAN LAUNCHED

The Bureau of Plant industry (BPI),  with the assistance of the Development Academy of the Philippines (DAP), has undergone an organizational performance and capacity assessment which aimed to identify areas that need strengthening to be more effective and efficient in the delivery of its mandates.

Organizational interventions were determined.  BPI identified the need to develop a medium-term strategic plan that will describe where the organization is right now, where they want to go and the course of action needed  in terms of programs and interventions.

On January 18, 2017, during the celebration of BPI 87th Founding Anniversary, the Strategic Plan for 2017-2022 was launched. DAP Team headed by Mr. Antonio D.  Kalaw, Jr. handed to BPI OIC Director Vivencio R. Mamaril the fruit of the nine months hard work, a 220-page STRATPLAN. Dir Mamaril said that the book will be the “bible” of the employees of BPI in the next 6 years.

The 2017-2022 Strategic Plan is designed to prepare BPI embark on a journey towards quality and performance excellence, as it pursues its mandate in the area of plant genetic resource conservation and management; crop research, protection, and production; plant pest surveillance and forecasting; pest management system and control strategies; analytical services; seed quality services; plant quarantine services; agricultural engineering services; and food safety.

Dir. Mamaril urged the public to check on the Bureau’s performance every now and then based on the developed STRATPLAN.
