Central Farm Campus Successfully Micro propagates Banana Plantlets for Local Industry
The President wishes to bring to your attention this very good report on the field performance of banana plants produced at the UB Central Farm Campus (UBCF) Micro-propagation Lab, under a project funded by the European Union through Inter-American Institute for Cooperation on Agriculture (IICA).
The University fully supports and expresses its confidence in and by the growers. It is expected that the developed Micro-Propagation Lab will produce banana plants commercially to support the national industry.
The President thanks the management and staff of the UBCF for their efforts to date and as you will recall at our End of Year Social 2018, Mr. Marco Cordova, Ms. Kenny Balan and Mr. Selvin Vidal were recognised for their sterling efforts in the project as seen below.
