Cordillera soil, plant & water lab opens at BSU
by Carlito C. Dar and Charisse Miranda

LA TRINIDAD Benguet –  The Cordillera Soil, Plant and Water Laboratory opened at the Benguet State University to provide quality services for soil, water and plant analyses, and science and technology (S&T) interventions to support agricultural productivity.

The facility will primarily benefit the region’s state universities and colleges, graduate students, farmers, farmer’s cooperatives, and line agencies in terms of S&T, innovation, and research and development (R&D).

Department of Science and Technology Sec. Fortunato dela Peña, DOST-Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (Pcaarrd) Acting Executive Director Dr. Reynaldo Ebora, and BSU president Dr. Feliciano Calora Jr. led the ceremonial unknotting of the ribbon and unveiling of the laboratory and the Intellectual Property and Technology Business Management  markers on July 26.

Dela Peña expressed DOST’s gratitude to BSU and Pcaarrd for their initiative as the Regional Soil, Plant and Water Laboratory will play an important role in improving the productivity of the agriculture sector and in the capacity building of SUCs and students through the promotion of  S&T, innovation, and R&D.

The facility can also be helpful to DOST’s initiative on disaster risk reduction and management and climate change adaptation with its research and development component/capability.

“Now you have a regional facility for modern soil, plant and water analysis within your reach, which aside from improving agricultural productivity can also be an instrument that will help you care for your ecosystem,” Dela Peña said.

BSU and DOST-Pcaarrd have upgraded the former BSU Soils Laboratory into a regional facility, which outputs include laboratory services for the analysis of up to 5,000 soil samples; 1,000 plant samples, and 500 irrigation water samples per year.

The project proponent’s partnership includes capacity building on soil, plant and water collection and interpretation, and training on basic and specialized equipment operation and maintenance, as well as production of high impact R&D  undertakings.

Operations of the regional laboratory will be under the supervision of Dr. Carlito Laurean, BSU vice president for Research and Extension and director of the Cordillera Consortium for Agriculture, Aquatic and Resources Research and Development.

DOST Regional Director Nancy Bantog assured continuing collaboration with BSU, its strong partner in R&D promotion in the region.
