MALAYBALAY CITY, BUKIDNON – To offer better and more modern services to the farmers, the Department of Agriculture – Regional Field Office 10 (DA-10) through DA-10 Regional Executive Director Carlene C. Collado conducted a groundbreaking ceremony for the establishment of the Plant Health Hub (PHH) at the agency’s Regional Crop Protection Center (RCPC) on August 4, 2023, in barangay Bangcud here in this city

The hub, with a contract amount of P3,929,138.01, is funded by the DA-Bureau of Agricultural Research (BAR), which aims to cater to farmers with plant health problems.

RCPC chief Lucille T. Minguez shared, “With the presence of the hub, we can have precise diagnosis, prescriptions, and management options in addressing plant health issues which is aligned to the government’s objective of pushing for growth in the agriculture sector through increased productivity while reducing pest losses.”

Minguez added that the facility will be utilized to improve the lives of the farmers, not just in Bukidnon but in the whole region and even from the neighboring regions.

Meanwhile, Director Collado encouraged RCPC and the other DA stations to request more facilities that are beneficial to the farmers.

“We need to upgrade our current facilities. Propose as many projects as you can, so we can develop our office and improve our services to the farmers, particularly in RCPC, which is the only office of its kind in the entire region,” the regional executive director remarked.

A pre-construction conference among the RCPC, DA-10 Regional Agricultural Engineering Division, and the contractor for the construction of the PHH was also conducted immediately after the groundbreaking ceremony. (DA RFO–10)
