Cagayan to be developed as “fruit bowl” of Luzon

TUGUEGARAO CITY, March 3 (PIA) – Officials of the province of Cagayan are pushing for the development of the province as the “fruit bowl” of Luzon, considering its fertile soil and wide terrestrial lands that could be developed for fruit plantations.

 

Atty. Mila Perpetua C. Lauigan, 3st district board member, said the province has big potential for fruit productions considering that majority of the farmers are integrating in their agricultural products different kinds of tropical fruits.

 

Dr. Pons Batugal, president and chairman of The Farmers Community Development Foundation International, also explained that several kinds of fruit trees can be developed in the province that are conducive to its climate such as mango, banana, tamarind, dragon fruit, coconut, lubeg, guava, and papaya, including the different kinds of indigenous fruits in the forest.

 

Batugal said the province can tap state universities in the different towns as well as the local government units to maintain nurseries that will produce seedlings of fruit bearing trees which will be utilized for massive tree planting in the identified planting sites under the greening program of the government.

 

Lauigan further said she will later push an ordinance for the establishment of a one-town, one-fruit-program as support to the said dream to make Cagayan the “fruit bowl” of Luzon.

 

Last year, when the National Greening Program was started, Region 2 Environment Chief Benjamin Tumaliuan ordered the integration of fruit-bearing trees in the tree-planting activities within the identified planting sites in the province of Cagayan. (TCB/OTB/VCG-PIA 2)
