It started as the MSAC Newsletter in the 1970s to meet one of the requirements of then, the Department of Education, for a college to be elevated into a university. Hence, Shamag came out as the University newsletter in 1996.

Student researchers develop fog harvesters to cope with farm water shortage

According to research, most potato farmers in Buguias, Benguet are dependent on rainfall to water their farms causing some farmers to wait for the rainy season before planting. But what if structures worth less than Php 3,000.00 could convert fog into water?

Donalyn M. Macaburas and Diostonee A. Balinte,
alumni of Agricultural Engineering at Benguet State University thought of this machine to help farmers thru the suggestion of Dr. Silver K. Aben and guided by their adviser, Engr. Editha Carlos.
