The Bureau of Plant Industry – Guimaras National Crop Research, Development and Production Support Center (BPI-GNCRDPSC) conducted a consultation dialogue of mango stakeholders for good agricultural practices (GAP) adoption cum mango field day on April 14, 2016.  The activity was conducted to encourage mango growers, farmers and stakeholders to adopt the recommended good agricultural practices (GAP) on mango and apply for certification.  It also wanted to showcase the production of other high value crops including vegetables, herbs and spices.

Highlighted on the one-day activity were the ceremonial harvesting of mango, inauguration of newly renovated postharvest and processing laboratory, led by Assistant Secretary for Planning and Project Development and BPI OIC Director Paz Benavidez II.  The Center’s GAP production management system on mango was presented and a consultation dialogue with the farmers and stakeholders was held.

Provincial Board Member, Diosdado Gonzaga assured the local government’s unwavering support to the Center and its project most especially in improving and promoting Guimaras mangoes. Assistant Director for High Value Crop Development (HVCDP) Jennifer Remoquillo commended the growers for working so hard in producing world class mangoes. Department of Agriculture has put mango as one of the priority crops and it ensures that the value chain approach is being implemented, that necessary assistance are given to nurseries, growers, sellers and exporters. OIC Director Benavidez assured mango growers that the international market has opened its door for the Philippine fruits especially for the mangoes from Guimaras. Food Safety has become a global concern. She recommended that farmers observe Good Agricultural Practices and be certified subsequently.  This may become a compulsory requirement of the importing country soon. The growers must accept the challenges to sustain the increasing demand and be globally competitive. BPI is committed to support the development and promotion f DA-GAP Program.

Technology demonstration on matured technologies on mango (fertilization, pruning, proper harvesting and postharvest handling and hot water treatment), mango processing, mushroom production and herbs utilization were also conducted.

Moreover, planting materials in form of vegetables seeds and potted herbal plants were distributed to the participants.  A total of 100 mango growers, farmers, processors, women’s group and stakeholders benefitted on the said activity. (RS Orquia & LAEugenio)
