True to what is stipulated in the agreement, the Department of Agriculture continually provides the University with various information regarding new technologies and strategies that can revolutionize the agriculture industry in the province. Aside from the information updates, funds were also provided to the University and this made possible the conduct and completion of agriculture related researches.
