Eddsring Integrated Farm, an accredited agri-tourism farm in Dumalag, Capiz, is set to acquire technological support through the Department of Science and Technology VI (DOST VI) Small Enterprise Technology Upgrading Program 4.0 Innovation-Enabling Fund or SETUP 4.0 iFund.

Through SETUP 4.0 iFund, the farm intends to further improve overall product quality and increase production capacity. Moreover, it will implement a part of the package of technologies developed by the Capiz State University (CAPSU) which was funded by DOST Philippine Council for Agriculture, Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development (DOST-PCAARRD) to improve its native chicken production.

The farm proprietor, Mr. Edilberto O. Panuncia, formalized the partnership with DOST VI by signing a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) at the Capiz Provincial Science and Technology Office (PSTO). Mr. Panuncia believes that with the partnership with DOST, his farm can achieve its plan of becoming the top producer of poultry and other farm products in Panay.
