The Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development of the Department of Science and Technology (PCAARRD-DOST) recently reprinted its “The Philippine Recommends for Goat Farming” with updated information and data on goat production and the industry. It generally aims to provide relevant information on various goat-raising aspects.
The growing demand for organic fresh vegetables, fruits, rice and herbs in both local and international markets increases the need for inputs such as organic fertilizer. As such the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (PCAARRD) offers a new technology publication on commercially produced organic fertilizer.
“The need for Research and Development (R&D) is very important in developing food security and alleviating poverty especially in rural areas. R&D activities in the agriculture, aquatic and natural resources (AANR) sectors generate many types of output such as technology, capacity and policy aimed at solving a wide range of production-related as well as marketing-related problems” (Cardenas, et al, 2016).
With the purpose of quantifying the on- and off-site effects of agricultural externalities and their causes, the Southeast Asian Regional Center for Graduate Study and Research in Agriculture (SEARCA) together with the Bureau of Agricultural Research (BAR) and Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice) conducted a study on Productivity Growth in Philippine Agriculture (PGPA). It was also intended to give a better understanding on mitigating mechanisms based on literature reviews and empirical case studies about upland corn production.
