Workshop on Commercial Crops (Fruits).

4-8 December 2017


Serving as the last leg of the series of workshops on commercial crops, the Bureau of Agricultural Research (BAR), in collaboration with the High Value Crops Development Program (HVCDP), conducted the “National Review and Planning Workshop for BAR-funded R&D Projects on Commercial Crops (Fruits)” on 4-8 December 2017.

The activity aimed to put R&D interventions in place, this time with emphasis on fruits, to support the targets of the industry, the HVCDP, and the agriculture department as a whole. In the break-out sessions, the participants were grouped into three to work on: 1) national priority fruit commodities, 2) regional champion fruit commodities, and 3) indigenous fruits.

Spearheaded by the bureau’s Program Development Division, the workshop was attended by commodity experts, research directors, regional coordinators, focals, and representatives from the DA family, academe, and private sector. ###
