Agri graduates urged to practice in the country

Apr. 14, 2015

The Department of Agriculture would want graduates of agriculture-related courses to stay in the country for their practice.

In a press release on Tuesday, Agriculture Secretary Proceso Alcala said, the agriculture sector needs fresh graduates to give the agriculture sector “the necessary push for it to flourish.”

“There is a dire need for fresh blood in agriculture, especially those with knowledge about new planting, fishing and animal-raising technologies,” Alcala said.

“If our graduates stay in the Philippines to practice what they have learned here, they might not be paid as much, but they will be of great help to our countrymen,” Alcala said.

Alcala said Philippine universities “offer the best agriculture and agriculture-related courses.”

“Foreigners come here to learn and practice what they learned from our schools in their homeland. We at the Department are hoping that our graduates will do the same for our country,” Alcala said.
