Responding to DA Secretary Manny Piñol’s directives on intensifying adlay, the Bureau of Agricultural Research (BAR) conducted a special Technical Working Group (TWG) meeting and planning workshop on 12-14 July 2017.

The activity assessed the physical and financial accomplishments of the program based on the Adlay Roadmap; discussed project implementation issues and recommendations; and reviewed data on adlay adaptability yield trials for seed registration at the National Seed Industry Council (NSIC). With the success of adlay in terms of production and development, in partnership with the DA regional offices, the planning workshop targets to further expand adlay production, and to hasten product development and marketing.

BAR Director Nicomedes P. Eleazar emphasized the establishment of the adlay processing facilities which will be put up in three locations in Batangas, Bukidnon, and Zamboanga del Norte. This project will be supported by BAR under its Institutional Development Grant (IDG) program. ###

BAR-PMED technical staff, Niko Paller serves as the emcee of the activity.
