PCA to Distribute 20 Million Coconut Seedling

Thursday, November 23, 2017

Philippine Coconut Authority (PCA) administrator Romulo J. Dela Rosa said the agency is eyeing to distribute 20 million coconut seedlings over the next three years through its massive replanting program in a bid to revitalize the coconut industry in the country. Dela Rosa said in his keynote address at  the 2nd International Coconut Conference and Trade Expo in Davao City earlier this month that  the agency needed to venture into massive replanting and fertilization to increase the production capacity of coconut farms.  He said the PCA has a proposed 2018 budget of P1.4 billion, at least half of this will be allocated for replanting most specifically in areas severely hit by typhoons and affected  by pests and diseases.
