DA Biotechnology Program Urgent Call for Proposals 2021

The Department of Agriculture Biotechnology Program’s main purpose is to help create an enabling environment for the development and better use of agricultural biotechnology as one of technology options for food security, sector competitiveness, and resilience to climate change.

With the Agriculture and Fisheries Modernization Act or AFMA of 1997 (RA 8435), the program aims to help the agriculture sector move from resource-based to technology-based through development of a wide range of biotechnology techniques and tools while ensuring biosafety.
