Two new support facilities for citrus will be established in NVSU this year; the Germplasm Screen House and the Citrus Training Center. The structures will complement the on-going construction of the Philippine Citrus Resources Development Center (PCRDC) which is the first in the country.

According to Dr. Elbert A. Sana, Director of Citrus Resources Research and Development Center (CRRDC), the establishment of the Philippine Citrus Resources Development Center supports the Citrus program of the university. Dr. Sana said "We already have the Citrus Resources Research and Development Center, now we have the Philippine Citrus Resources Development Center (PCRDC) which targets to become not only a regional but a national center."

Moreover Dr. Sana also stated that PCRDC and its support facilities will house all researches and extension programs  for development endeavors of the university. The germplasm screen house, due for completion in May, is intended for collecting, characterizing, and conserving citrus genetic resources for future cultivar introduction and breeding in the Philippines.

On the other hand, the training center which will be completed in October will serve as a venue for farmers' forum, technology promotion, training on citrus production, and product development.

Beneficiaries of the facilities include researchers, students, retailers, traders, processors, partners in citrus industry, and citrus growers of the region and the whole country.

NVSU secured an amount of P12,341,670.00 from the Department of Budget and Management (DBM) for the structures initiated by the former University President Dr. Florentina S. Dumlao. The current administration under the leadership of President Andres Z. Taguiam implements the projects.
