CAg students make the most out of the newly installed computer units in the college’s computer laboratory. The fund that was used to purchase these computers was from the CHED-NAFES grant.

More equipment and better support facilities and services. These are now available for agriculture students through the P1M grant released for CLSU being a National University College of Agriculture (NUCA) by the National Agriculture and Fisheries Education System (NAFES) under the Commission on Higher Education (CHED).

As a designated NUCA, the CLSU College of Agriculture (CAg) will receive P1 M/year for three consecutive years. According to Dr. Federico O. Perez, CAg dean, part of the first P1M which was released last year was used to improve the computer laboratory of the college by purchasing 17 new computer units and a server for students' training in computer operation and application. Three computers will be installed at the Animal Science Department while three additional laptop computers were given to the different departments of the college. Other components of the NUCA grant are thesis support for students, presentation of papers in seminars and conferences, acquisition of library holdings, and conduct of exhibits and fairs, added Dean Perez. The college hopes to receive the second P1M grant in the latter part of this year after it shall have liquidated the expenses covered by the first P1M grant.

Meanwhile, as a Center of Excellence in Agriculture Education (2nd batch), CAg has submitted its cutting-edge technology/science (CET/S) research proposal amounting to P3 M per year for three years.

The college will further enhance green production technology for mango-goat-cash crop integration with focus on the quantification of the system's energy inflows and outflows. The research hopes to package a technology that will improve the productivity of the system based on the results of the geochemical cycling study and develop a strategy to increase carbon sequestration potential of the agroecosystem. This is one of the many practical ways to mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate change. The output from the study on goat improvement is envisioned to pave the way for the establishment of a goat production project to help address the growing demand for goats especially by clientele from outside the university.

Nine students of the College of Agriculture (CAg) will be the first recipients of a Certificate in Agricultural Science under the new BS Agriculture program which started implementation in School Year 2009-2010.
