NORSU President Dr. Henry A. Sojor said the growing need to develop the technical skills of the students requires building up of equipment for instruction that will enhance the skills and capability of graduates in agriculture.

Agriculture & Forestry Dean Dr. Venancia L. Olasiman said the amount will be used to buy electron microscopes, desktop computer and accessories, soil testing kits, pH meters, artificial insemination kits, Global Positioning System, and an air conditioning unit. All these equipment are needed at the Multi-Tissue Culture Laboratory not only for instructional purposes, but for expanding services among government units in Negros Oriental.

Olasiman said his College aims to develop the entrepreneurial skills of agriculture students by establishing income generating projects on poultry or native chicken production, piggery, integral fruit orchard, and high value crop production. The vision of CAF is to provide scientific and technological education to students for nation building in line with food production.

í¢â‚¬Å“We are expecting to receive another P250,000 by the end of second semester to upgrade our facilities and instructional sources,í¢â‚¬ said Olasiman. (Joy Perez/NORSU)
