A laboratory that will serve as the regional crop protection center will soon rise at Nueva Vizcaya State University (NVSU) on the last week of November 2018. It will focus on pests, diseases, inland weeds. The laboratory will also immerse on entomology, which is the study of insects.

For undergraduate and graduate students, the laboratory will also provide a workplace for taxonomic characterization, identification of causal organisms, identification of plant diseases, and taxonomical work.

According to Dr. Jonar Yago, Director of Research and Development program and one of the proponents, Ms. Gina Dizon, through plant indexing "we aim to have quality planting materials, like seedlings of banana, citrus, and rambutan."

The Analytical Crop Protection Laboratory will serve as a training ground for all agriculture enthusiasts, scientists, agriculture technicians, and other interested parties whether National Government Office, Local Government Unit, Provincial Local Government Unit, or any individual who are willing to undergo training related to pest and diseases.

Further, Dr. Yago also emphasized the importance of the lab to the students, "We would like to expose our students to the state of the art facilities in diagnostics particularly the basic protocol in plant pathology, entomology, and weed science."

The three storey building will house the indexing and tissue culture laboratories which focus on proper detection on pest diseases and researches about ginger, banana, citrus, and pineapple.

The facilities inside the laboratory includes photo microscope, stereo microscope, inverted microscope, molecular detection facilities, ultra refrigerator, incubator, and digital weighing balance.  The building funded by the Department of Science and Technology-Philippine Council for Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resources Research and Development (DOST-PCAARD), Commission on Higher Education (CHED),  Department of Science Technology-Grants in Aid Program (DOST-GIA), and Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Agricultural Resources (DA-BAR) costs 20 million pesos.

"The advantage of the Analytic and Crop Protection Lab is the state of the art facilities that you cannot find in other laboratories in Region 2." said Dr. Yago.
