In pursuit of developing future leaders of Inclusive and Sustainable Agricultural and Rural Development (ISARD) in Southeast Asia, SEARCA continues to support graduate students and their academic milestones. The Special Graduate Seminar Series aims to showcase outstanding researches conducted by SEARCA scholars. 

On 14 June 2017, Mr. Arsenio Bulfa Jr., MS Soil Science student at the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB) presented his research on the Measurement of Carbon Dioxide in Corn Cob Biochar-Amended Acid Soil Added with Different Types of Fertilizers at the Drilon Hall, SEARCA. The technology on Biochar is relatively new in the Philippines and is seen to have good potential in sequestering carbon dioxide, thus, preventing it from escaping to the atmosphere and contributing to global warming.

The presentation elicited interesting questions and suggestions from the audience. Mr. Bulfa's research was also selected to be presented in the upcoming International Conference on Agriculture in the Tropics (OgraTrop), which will take place on 20-24 August 2017 in Yogyakarta, Indonesia.

Such recognition proves the capability of SEARCA scholars to produce quality research that would have significant value in the field of agriculture.
