Powerful tornado damages banana plantations in Cotabato town
M'LANG, North Cotabato – A powerful tornado hit two villages here Thursday afternoon, causing heavy damage to banana plantations, an municipal agriculture official confirmed.
Nogie Saligumba, the town’s agriculture technologist, said at least 20 hectares of fruit-bearing banana plants were damaged in Pag-asa and Gaunan villages.
He said from 8,000 to 12,000 banana plants were damaged by the tornado which lasted for at least three minutes.
The damage to the plantations was pegged at P3.5 million. “Each tree with fruits ready to be harvested cost from P350 to P380,” Saligumba explained.
Roberto Santoyo, a plantation owner, said he lost at least P2.7 million to the tornado. The plantation helps pay for his family's daily needs, including the school expenses of his children. “But because of the incident...we’ve lost everything,” he said.
Mound formed by wind , rain draws birds, bats tourists in NCotabato
MLANG, North Cotabato, Philippines— A land formation in Barangay (village) New Rizal here, which residents previously paid little attention to, has been drawing visitors since early this year.
The curved crevices and holes in the seven-feet-high mound that stretches 50 meters long were formed by erosion due to rainwater and wind, Harold Santillan, the local tourism officer, said.
“It is a beautiful artwork of God,” a villager said.
Santillan said that despite being nearly stripped of trees or grass, the hill made up of loose sand and gravel has also drawn attention because of the various bird species and bats that have made it their home.
He said the transformation of the mound across the New Rizal Elementary School started in 2012 as rainwater washed away soil and the wind help form the crevices. He said villagers did not really pay serious attention to it.Add a comment
NCotabato rice farmers fear decline in harvest due to pests
MLANG, North Cotabato – Several farmers in this town fear a huge decline in their rice harvest after plant pests attacked their farms, the town's agriculture office reported Saturday.
Municipal agriculturist Noemi Nicholas told local reporters that at least 50 farmers complained of severe damage to their rice fields due to stem borer infestation.
Stem borer is a destructive pest that feasts on the roots of newly planted palay.
Nicolas said at least 200 hectares of rice affected by the infestation have no more chance of recovery.
In a separate interview, former Barangay Inas chairman Paeng Porras said he suspects some farmers whose rice suffered borer infestation did not follow the correct farming calendar.Add a comment
