FFTC Director Dr. Kuo-Ching Lin recently paid a courtesy call to the  Department of Agriculture’s Bureau of Soils and Water Management (DA-BSWM) in Quezon City, he met with its Officer-in-Charge and Assistant Director, Dr. Edna Samar, who is also one of FFTC’s Technical Advisory Committee (TAC) members. Joining Dr. Samar is Dr. Gina Nilo, Chief Agriculturist and Head of its Laboratory Services Division, who verbalized her gratefulness to FFTC for being part of last year’s training program on “Proficiency Testing of Soil, Plant Tissue and Fertilizer Analysis.”  As the nationally mandated authority on soils and water management for agriculture, the core function of the strengthened DA-BSWM is to provide leadership in the pursuit of R&D function for the two vital agricultural resources and provide recommendations to the office of the DA.
