Ilocus Sur honors Dr. Aganggan with Fr.Burgos award

Renowned agricultural scientist, Dr. Nelly Aggangan, led seven other outstanding sons and daughters of Ilocos Sur who were conferred the coveted Father Jose Burgos Awards in ceremonies held as part of the 7th Kannawidan Festival that began on 27 January and ended on 12 February. Dr. Aggangan was cited for her achievements in the development of the soil-based biological fertilizer, Mykovam, which has contributed to the advancement and promotion of the country’s agricultural sector.

 A seasoned researcher in BIOTECH, Dr. Aggangan was instrumental in the improvement and commercialization of Mykovam as a viable alternative to expensive chemical fertilizers for the survival and growth of both agricultural and forest crops. Mykovam is regarded as among UPLB-BIOTECH's most commercially successful products. Aside from her work on Mykovam, she has been commended and recognized for her exemplary work in the areas of agriculture and forestry, notably on her contributions to Mycorhizza Technology, Bioremediation, Forest Restoration and Plant Nutrition.

Gov Ryan Singson together with Vice Gov Jerry Singson and members of the Provincial Board conferred the award to Dr. Aggangan and seven other awardees.

 The conferment of the Father Jose Burgos Award, the most prestigious award for residents- achievers from Ilocos Sur, started in 2008 under the term of then Governor Deogracias Victor B. Savellano which was made as one of the main highlights in the first Kannawidan Ylocos Festival that commemorated the 190th foundation day of Ilocos Sur as separate province by virtue of a Spanish Royal Decree on February 2, 1818.
