Growth performance of Pechay, Brassica rapa,was tested using two organically produced composts and an inorganic fertilizer serving as control. Addition of Bio-N during the basal application was part of the organic inputs. Treatments were distributed in 4 replicates following the Randomized Complete Block Design (RCBD). Each treatment was composed of 16 plants at a distance planting of 20cmx40cm between hills and rows respectively. Application of basal fertilizer was done and harvesting was conducted twice starting from 30 days and 34 days. The effect of fertilizer was measured in terms of plant height, leaf area, weight of marketable leaves, weight of marketable plant, number of leaves per plant and the leaf area infestation. Except for leaf area pest infestation, result showed that those plants applied with vermicompost manifested the highest mean, though insignificant differences existed (P>.05) Hence, use of organic fertilizer is comparable with the use of urea in pechay production. It is recommended to organic farmers and gardening enthusiasts that use of organic inputs is preferred due to its econoic and environment friendly attributes.

This paper proposes some development programs for the internationalization of ten (10) Teacher Education Institutions (TEIs) in the Philippines that constitute the National Network of Normal Schools (3NS). The internal stakeholders of these institutions served as the assessors of the internationalization level using a 5-pt rubric, which highlights four (4) domains of Teacher Education and nine (9) dimensions of internationalization of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs). The four domains are: 1) Knowledge Creation and Application; 2) Quality and Excellence; 3) Culture of Sharing and Service; and 4) Growth, Efficiency, and Accountability. The nine (9) dimensions of internationalization in Higher Education Institutions are: 1) Curriculum and Instruction; 2) Facilities and Support System; 3) Cooperation and Development Assistance; 4) Diversity of Income Generation; 5) Research Collaboration; 6) International and Intercultural Understanding/Networking; 7) Academic Standards and Quality; 8) Mobility and Exchanges for Students and Teachers; and 9) International Students Recruitment. The proposed development programs are recommended for consideration of the individual institutions sampled, the network that they belong, and all the other TEIs in the country for the advancement of teacher education and to merit the recognition of the global community.

Title: Sipulo Integrated Sericulture Project: A Model for Sericulture Technology Adoption
Name: Elizabeth H. Madrid, Antonio E. Madrid, Rodolfo G. Nillo, Salvador M. Badua

The Philippine economy is basically agro-based and as a developing country, it has to develop first its agricultural sector for employment generation.

Silkworm rearing for cocoon production can be successfully demonstrated by utilizing the areas with potentials that are unutilized and underutilized in Region I. One of this area to consider is Sipulo, Bacnotan, La Union.

The study was conducted in Sipulo, Bacnotan, La Union CY 2010 to 2011. There were nine (9) silkworm rearings conducted in each year from mulberry establishment.

The significance of the study demonstrated that cocoon production is viable as additional source of income. Determined the benefits desired from the project by the farmers and at the end of the project the farmers continued to engaged in cocoon production with other cash crops. The project aims to showcase the package of technologies on cocoon production, specifically to determine the benefits derived from cocoon production in Sipulo, Bacnotan, La Union, to determine economic viability of cocoon production and to identify the best practices in cocoon production technology.

On year 2010, the project earned P 31,458.00 from eight (8) boxes of silkworms with the total weight of 179 kg. of fresh cocoons with and ROI of 78.72% and net profit of P 5,469.77, while in CY 2011 229.25 kg. of fresh cocoons produced out of 7.1 boxes of silkworms amounted to P 44,695.00, with ROI of 144.47% and total profit of P 10,038.11.

Aside from the income on silkworm rearing, the earnings from firewood, P24,489.00, mulberry cuttings P6,500.00, silkworm waste P6,000.00, inter-crop fruits P11,757.00, and vegetables P5,878.00, were generated with the total income of P65,415.00 with ROI of 613.34% and net income of P 42,616.11 for year 2011 having a payback period of 2.76 years (2 year and 9 mos).

Title: Relative Abundance and Distribution of Sea Cucumber In Ilocos Sur
Name: Remely A. Sanidad and Victor G. Sanidad

Species composition, abundance and distribution of sea cucumber were assessed along the four coastal municipalities of Ilocos Sur. Belt transect method laying 100 meters, one meter on each side of the transect by wading, snorkeling and diving. Sea cucumber were identified using the Conand’s FAO Species Guide, SPC Beche-de-mer Identification Card, Schoppe Handbook and Commercial Holothurians of Bolinao, Pangasinan.

Twelve species of sea cucumber present in the shallow coastal waters of Ilocos Sur and San Esteban as the most dense area but most varied in Santiago station. Actinophyga echinites, Holothuria atra and Holothuria leucospilota were common among the areas noted. Site distribution varies on the different species and month of collection. Most commercial important species collected attained bigger sizes and found in deeper areas. An average density per square meter of only 0.08 individual or 14 individuals per 200 square meters as manifestation of depleted wildstock.
