How to Get to UPLB Institute of Plant Breeding for the Training Course on Hydroponics Vegetable Production with Emphasis on SNAP Hydroponics

Banner with text that reads "Welcome Participants Training Course on Hydroponics Vegetable Production With Emphasis on SNAP Hydroponics Plant Physiology Laboratory Institute of Plant Breading"

Completing the short training course on hydroponics vegetable production with emphasis on SNAP Hydroponics is one of the requirements for being an authorised reseller of SNAP Hydroponics nutrient solutions. The training course is conducted in Plant Physiology Laboratory in UPLB Institute of Plant Breeding. This guide will show you how to get there if you are interested on being trained on hydroponics vegetable production for your hobby or business.

Where is the UPLB Institute of Plant Breeding (IPB)?

It is far from the UPLB campus and is a little challenging to get to. Do not despair because there is a shuttle that ferries people from UPLB to UPLB-IPB.

I’m commuting. How Do I Get There?

It’s easy to commute to UPLB. Get there before 7:30AM. If you are too early you can spend your time in the fast food chains around the area. Ask the guards for directions to the admin building parking lot. It’s not very far. If you are facing the gate it’s the very first building to your left. Remember to obey traffic rules. Smoking and littering are prohibited inside the campus.

The easiest commute route is commuting to UPLB campus and riding the free shuttle service that ferries staff and student from the UPLB campus to UPLB-IPB.

The shuttle service is free for everyone. If you are there by 7:30 AM queues should start forming. Be sure to ask which shuttle the queue is for before you queue. Because you might be queuing for the wrong one.

The shuttle can get pretty crowded. You might need to give up your seat to someone who needs it more than you. Please be considerate.

The ride is going to take around 15 mins. Sit back and enjoy the scenery. The shuttle is going to take you directly to UPLB-IPB.

When the bus stops, get off and take the path immediately facing the bus door. Follow it to the Physiology Lab.

I have my own vehicle. How do I get there?

You can use navigation apps. You can also try and tail the UPLB-IPB shuttle when it leaves for it’s 7:45AM trip as I described above. Just make sure to ask the shuttle’s driver if it is OK.

  1. I want to join for the hydroponics to join or register?

  2. then how to get there frm Manila?
    When are the schedules, is it daily?

    1. Hi. If commuting buses going to Sta Cruz, Laguna drops passengers off near UPLB. Previously, the short training course is conducted every second and fourth Tuesday of each month. I believe they are more frequent today. Please get in touch with UPLB-IPB.

  3. I want to undergo training/ seminar in hydroponic. Please consider me as your applicant. How to join and register?

  4. I have registered already, 2 or 3 months ago, and have given 1 slot but I have not received email or text message for my training schedule.

    1. Please give them a call. There has been a huge spike in sign ups for the short course since the start of 2018.

  5. […] to UPLB-IPB to participate in the SNAP Hydroponics training or buying supplies can be tricky. In a previous post I discussed how to get to UPLB-IPB by taking the UPLB-IPB shuttle that leaves UPLB at 8:00AM daily. […]

  6. Hello sir.. nag register na po ako for training sa Hydroponics.. sir ask ko lang since maaga po ung seminar, may room for rent po ba sa loob ng campus nyo kahit sa main blg kung saan nag aantay ng shuttle for me to stay for the night before the seminar (pls post any contact person).. para di naman ako madaling araw mag commute… salamat po kasi di ko rin po alam kung pano magpunta jan.. para atleast medyo bawas na po ung iniisip ko af makapag focus sa seminaf

    1. Hello. Nasubukan na po ba ninyo sa i-check ang listings sa AirBnB?

      1. Mahal naman kasi sir, kahit sana inn lang.. ung tipong 300/night… May na search ako na dorm sa loob pero di ko lang po sure if may avaialble durinv my training.. tsaka sir wala pa rin akong na recieve na confirmation asode sa sinabi na may slot na ako… Ganon po ba talaga katagal???

  7. Sir, i started hydroponic using snap solution first po ung walang oxygen then i tried DWC w/ air pump pero stunted pa rin ung growth ng petchay ko… Mas nauna pa ung mustasa na nasa lupa na kasabay kong transplant sa hydroponic ..

    1. Hello. Sa palagay ko yung init ng panahon. Depende kung saan nakasetup ang hydroponics mo baka masyadong mainit at umiinit din ang solution kaya stunted ang growth.

      1. Ganon po ba?? Kasi nasa south west po sya sa terrace… Medyo mainit po sa haoon kaya naglagay akko ng shading net sa buong terrace at bumili rin po ako ng solar air pump para po may hangin at di na soffucate ung mga ugat nya.. nagbili rin po ako ng growth hormone at siniispray ko po sya at the top sa hydroton kasi po medyo maliit pa ung ugat nila kahit more than 1 month na po sila naka transplant.. Di ko po sure if yung salt po (precipitate) from the solution ay nag aadhere sa ugat kaya stunted po growth po.. ung ppm ko po ay 900 to 1100 po at pH po ay maintain po sa 5.5 to 6.. sana po tama ginagawa ko.. please feedback po if may mali that is needed to be corrected at may suggestions po… salamat

  8. Baka naman hindi na sapat yung sun light na natatanggap nung halaman. Yan yung pina-importante. At least 3-6 hours of direct sunlight. The more the better as long as namamanage pa rin yung temperature ng nutrient solution.

  9. Ok sir!! Thank you po sa reply… Enough naman po siguro yung light kaso po kasi kapag nabababad ng sobra sa sun kumukulantoy sya at lumalambot… Baka po paganahin ko na lang rin po ung growth led light ko sa gabi… Sana po may improvement… Mag reply an lang po ako uli dito sir sa update.. maraming salamat po!!!

  10. Hi, may we ask if we can invite your team/speaker to conduct training at our office?15-20 Pax.
