Cotabato town plants more rubber; plans to generate 5,000 jobs

Koronadal City (14 September) -- To start its intention to plant more than 4 million rubber trees, the Local Government of Makilala in North Cotabato today relaunched the Makilala Rubber Development Project.

Initially, the Makilala government, in cooperation with the Don Bosco Foundation for Sustainable Development, a nongovernment organization, plans to plant rubber ten hectares of rubber in Barangay Batasan, Makilala where the NGO is based.

The local government, headed by Mayor Rudy Caoagdan and Makilala?s Sangguniang Bayan, also hopes to generate around 5,000 jobs with the project.

Aside from job generation, the project is also geared to assist the government in its effort to reduce the effects of climate change. Four million of rubber trees, according to reports, can effectively use up three tons of carbon dioxide in the air.

Among the rubber clones being planted are : PB 260, PB 330, USM 1, RRIM 610, and PB 86. The initial launching of the project was held last March. (R Beņez/DXVL/DE Doguiles/PIA 12) [top]
