The Bureau of Agricultural Research (BAR), through the Institutional Development Division (IDD), spearheads the final deliberation of the shortlisted nominees for the 2016 Gawad Saka Search for Outstanding Agricultural Scientist (OAS) and Researcher (OAR).

The Search is an annual activity of the Department of Agriculture that gives due recognition to scientists and researchers with outstanding accomplishments in agriculture and fisheries.

Prior to the deliberation, a desk evaluation was held in July and a month-long field validation from August to September was conducted to assess the nominees’ works based on the following criteria: 1) quality of scientific/research works; 2) productivity; 3) creativity; and 4) impact of new knowledge generated from research.
