Camiguin posts increase in farmers' production, profit

by Jorie C. Valcorza

Mambajao, Camiguin (26 January) -- Aimed at increasing local farmers' production and reducing its dependence from the mainland, the Provincial Agriculture Office (PAO) spent about Php5.5 million on crop production projects in 2009.

As a result, the crop sector shared almost 60 percent (%) of the total agricultural output last year. Such increase is expected to put down the market value of farms products thus making it more affordable to the public.

The palay production showed an increase of 11 percent (%), while corn increased at 2 percent (%). Other products that contributed to a better yield are banana, root crop, coconut and lanzones fruits.

To sustain the growth, the provincial government has invested on agri-infrastructure projects and completed last year the construction of the Multi-Purpose Drying Pavement and the rehabilitation of communal irrigation projects.

PAO also reported the release of Php1 million worth of loan assistance in 2009 for different livelihood programs under the Plant Now Pay Later program (PNPL).

Rice and coconut farmers likewise continue to enjoy the fertilizer subsidy program. (PIA 10) [top]
