Agri-10 to explore buckwheat production in its research stations

MALAYBALAY CITY, BUKIDNON – The Department of Agriculture in Northern Mindanao (DA-10), headed by Regional Executive Director Carlene C. Collado, is set to explore the conduct of on-site trials for buckwheat production in its research centers

After Carmen Sunrise Exporters, Inc. (CSEI), led by its company manager, Mr. Tetsuji Yukawa, sought help from the agency, they targeted to venture into buckwheat production somewhere in Bukidnon province successfully.

On October 3 at DA’s Northern Mindanao Agricultural Crops and Livestock Research Complex (NMACLRC) in Dalwangan here, DA-10 Regional Technical Director for Operations Carlota S. Madriaga cited that given that buckwheat is an exploratory crop in Region 10, she shared her insights on the adoption of growing buckwheat and the challenges that potentially come along with it.

“We are suggesting that we conduct trials here [NMACLRC] so that we will know the technology and establish our data that is suitable for buckwheat production before we commercialize or disseminate it to the farmers,” RTD Madriaga conveyed with the Research Division taking the lead under the wing of RTD for Research and Regulations Cora A. Dumayaca.

Besides the conduct of experimental trials at NMACLRC, which has an elevation of 800-1,000 meters (m) above sea level (asl), the agri official added that the same activity can also be done at DA’s Research Center for Upland Development (RCUD) in Barongcot, Bukidnon with 300-600m asl.

As agreed, Dir. Collado emphasized that the company must submit a Letter of Intent and enter into a Memorandum of Agreement (MOA) with DA before the trial.

This includes the private company providing planting materials such as seeds and other necessary support for establishing on-site trials depending on its scope.

Furthermore, the assistant director urged CSEI to identify farmers’ cooperatives associations (FCAs) to source out buckwheat harvest from them easily and for said groups to also possibly gain access to some big-ticket interventions from DA-10, such as the provision of machinery and equipment needed in their production, postharvest, and other operations.

CSEI currently works under the umbrella of Japanese firms Starlanes, Corp. and Diamond Star, Corp. with affiliated companies in Hawaii, the USA, Australia, and Thailand.

It primarily processes and exports fresh Philippine agricultural products, specifically Mango, Papaya, Cardava/Saba-Banana, Balangon-Banana, Pineapple, and Durian.

Also present during the meeting are DA-10 Research Division chief Lorena V. Duna, RCUD chief Catalino S. Soriano, Jr., NMACLRC chief Carmelito R. Lapoot; and CSEI Purchasing and Packing Supervisor Antoinette Quino Gallarde and Assistant Operations Manager Mark Angelo L. Catungal. (DA RFO-10)
