Agriculture Secretary William Dar attended the 2019 National Seed Summit on December 2, 2019  wherein in line with the summit’s theme, “Binhing de Kalidad at Sagana, Para sa Mataas na Ani at Kita,” he stressed that available and accessible good quality and certified seeds are important in increasing the country’s agricultural production.

He also announced the plan of the Department of Agriculture (DA) to establish a National Seed Technology Park during his keynote address. The National Seed Technology Park will gather the key players in the seed industry in an area of at least 50 hectares. The project will be supported by the Bureau of Plant Industry (BPI), National Seed Industry Council (NSIC), and the Philippine Seed Industry Association, Inc., among others.

The technology park is inspired by the Andhra Pradesh State Mega Seed Park in India, a business proposition or an inclusive agribusiness opportunity that is not limited to research or educational purposes only. (Photos by Alan Jay Jacalan, DA-AFID)
