Bohol farmers urged to plant cacao

  • by

BATUAN, Bohol — In an effort to increase the income of coconut farmers, reelectionist Senator Cynthia Villar on Monday encouraged Boholano farmers to inter-crop cacao as the demand for it is on the rise.

Villar, who chairs the Senate Committee on Agriculture, made the appeal during a brief talk with Bohol media on the sidelines of the 115th anniversary celebration of Batuan town.

The lawmaker said she is encouraging coconut farmers to consider planting cacao as additional crop because the country is only producing 10,000 metric tons of cacao while the demand is 50,000 metric tons.
