Department of Agriculture and the University of the Philippines Los Baños

DA and UPLB collaborate to improve pineapple production in Philippines

The Department of Agriculture has collaborated with the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB) to improve queen pineapple productivity and quality by adapting the Site-Specific Nutrient Management (SSNM) technology. The project will be led by DA-Bicol Region, following the success of the technology in other crops, such as corn.

The project is being implemented in 17 different sites in Sorsogon, Albay, Camarines Sur, Camarines Norte, Masbate, and Catanduanes.

The SSNM is considered an optimal crop nutrient management because it takes into consideration the factors affecting yield, such as soil fertility, crop management practices (particularly crop variety, crop residue management, crop rotation, and organic nutrient inputs), climate, water availability, fertilizer source, and price.
