Agriculture Secretary William D. Dar challenged the academe to “deliver results not only research outputs” during the opening ceremony of the 111th Foundation Day Celebration of the College of Agriculture and Food Science of the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB-CAFS) on March 3, 2020.

Dar said the academe should change their mindset and start focusing on developing impactful researches.

In his keynote speech, the Secretary announced that the Department of Agriculture through the Bureau of Agricultural Research (DA-BAR) will provide additional research funding support to the college institute amounting to P485 million (M) this year.

To date, the agency has released P388 M for the UPLB-CAFS ongoing project.
