Dr. Rubiyo of Puslitbangbun Visited PMB Lab

In May 31, 2011, Dr. Rubiyo of Pusat Penelitian dan Pengembangan Tanaman Perkebunan (Puslitbangbun), Bogor, visited PMB Lab, Department of Agronomy, Faculty of Agriculture, IPB, Bogor. He is now appointed as the Head of Program and Evaluation Office (Kepala Bidang Program dan Evaluasi), Puslitbangbun. The purpose of Dr. Rubiyo’s brief visit to PMB Lab. was to discuss how to carry out cacao research to develop high yielding and disease resistance clones. Dr. Rubiyo has invited Prof. Sudarsono as one of the research teams for his cacao research project.

Dr. Rubiyo was actually an alumnus of PMB Lab since his PhD research activities were partly conducted in this lab. When asked what were his impressions about becoming a head of Program and Evaluation Office at Puslitbangbun, he replied diplomatically by saying “The position indeed carries a big responsibility; however, my personal and past experiences help me prepare for what’s need to be done.” By that he inferred the appointment as head of Program and Evaluation Office may not just be an easy task.

Before assuming his current position, Dr. Rubiyo has been in charge for Program and Evaluation Section in BPTP Denpasar Bali and in a number of other institutions. He also has a high qualification in term of theoretical and practical about estate crops. He has also showed a very good ability and flexibility to succeed in negotiation, an ability highly needed in his position.  These qualifications may just be the necessary skills for Dr. Rubiyo to tackle his heavy responsibilities ahead.

All PMB Lab staffs and associated students wish Dr. Rubiyo luck in his new position as head of Program and Evaluation Office of Puslitbangbun. We hope he will be successful in managing the program and evaluation of the prestigious research institutions under the Agency for Agriculture Research and Development (AARD), Ministry of Agriculture, Republic of Indonesia.

    It is a good information on Dr. Rubiyo. In addition, since January 2012, he was assigned a new position as Director of Indonesian Industrial and Freshener Crops Research Institute (Balai Penelitian Tanaman Industri dan Penyegar – Balittri) in Pakuwon, Sukabumi. The institute is still under Puslitbang Perkebunan.
    That’s all the update. Tq.
