Filipino Department of Agriculture boosts Apayao banana production

The Filipino Department of Agriculture expects a boost in the production of quality bananas in Apayao with government support for the industry. According to Eleanor Camut, DA-Cordillera’s High-Value Crop Program assistant coordinator, the School-on-the-Air program on banana farming in Apayao aimed to capacitate the farmers already producing the dollar-earning commodity that is potentially a significant source of income.

The program provides farmers training on integrated pest management, value-adding, macro propagation of clean planting materials, and modern techniques and strategies, among others. DA record shows that in the region, Apayao is the top producer of bananas, yielding 30,523 tons worth PHP38.6 million (€656,000) from 1,123 hectares in 2021.
