ROXAS CITY, Capiz (PIA) -- Another Agribusiness Incubator (ABI) project of the Capiz State University (CapSU) was recently launched in its Burias Campus in Mambusao town, this province.

“More people in the province's second district will be given the chance to gain knowledge, skills and become business- oriented in order that they can augment their income and improve their conditions in life,” said CapSU president Dr. Editha C. Alfon.

She added saying, “Now is the time to translate our MOA commitment on paper to a reality in the lives of our people we serve.”

The ABI in CapSU Burias campus, funded thru the Department of Agriculture – 

Bureau of Agricultural Research (DA-BAR), is a project of the university’s Research Development and Extension (RDE) Office that will facilitate the transfer and commercialization of research-based technologies through an incubation program.

It will cater private farmers, farmers' cooperatives as well as associations, students, and alumni of the university.

During the launching, Capiz Second District Representative Jane T. Castro emphasized the significance of the project in the government’s efforts towards food sufficiency and security.

“It cannot be denied that the agriculture sector has a big contribution in economic development because we are in an agricultural country,” the lawmaker stressed, adding that the technical and scientific support to the farmers or incubatees at the ABI will give them sustainable solutions to their problems.

The activity was also graced by Capiz vice-governor Jaime O. Magbanua, CapSU vice-president for RDE, DA-BAR as well as national government agencies representatives, and incubatees, among others.

In 2019, the RDE also led the launching of the CapSU Agri-Aqua Technology Business Incubation (CapSU-ATBI) in the university’s satellite college in Brgy. Dayao here, thru the funding support of the Department of Science and Technology – Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources and Research Development (DOST – PCAARRD).
