Cinnamon hits highest bulk of seedling production in Camiguin


MAMBAJAO, CAMIGUIN, Dec. 13 (PIA) — Instead of Lanzones, cinnamon returns the highest number of seedlings produced here at the provincial plant nursery. 

Crescendo L. Loquellano, Chief of the Provincial Agriculture’s Office (PAO) Crop Section explained that the minimal harvest for lanzones in 2011 have caused this year’s collection of seedlings to significantly drop. This also includes the production of Camlong, a cross breed of the local variety and longkong-a variety usually grown in Thailand and Indonesia, seedlings at the nurseries which have also been reduced. 

A 35 percent reduction in the total number of assorted fruit trees/ forest trees and ornamental seedling was noted this year, when compared to last year, which recorded a net sale of about P80,000. 

Cinnamon, meanwhile, posted the highest bulk in seedling production, which accounted to some 2,829 seedlings out of the 14,094 total produce. 

Loquellano noted that some of these seedlings were already planted and distributed to the different schools around the province in support to the President’s National Greening Program. 

The provincial plant nursery according to Loquellano is envisioned to be an integrated demo and training farm for various crop/fishery/livestock production technologies. (PIA 10)
