Farmers from Bukidon are shifhting to CACAO

At Rosaroso Farm, located in Sirib, Calinan, Davao City, a test site of FullOn by GrowSwitch . Sugarcane, Corn, Vegetables and Abaca (a.k.a. “Manila Hemp”) farmers are shifting to Cacao and Integrated Farming. This farm has already touched the lives of those who visited it and gave an inspiration for farmers who are interested in growing Cacao. I encourage you to give this farm a visit in order to see it personally, and I can assure you that you’ll learn more than what you expect.An example of a well cared W10 pod. You’ll need at least 3-5 pods to get 1 kilogram of wet beans with this variety. After counting the pods of some trees, the visitors were surprised that they counted up to 200+- pods on a single tree.
They’re the grafters here, as you can see they are very good in their work. The recovery rate of the grafted seedlings increased even more when they added FullOn by GrowSwitch to their regimen. It’s almost perfect, seedling mortality is very rare. Beside the fact that the grafters are very experienced, the thickness of the plant’s cell wall is one big factor why water dissipation occurs less likely. If the plant cell can hold water very well, then it’s likely for them to get dehydrated, meaning the greater the chances for the two tissues to bind together. That’s why they’re great in grafting too.Photos were taken on October 1, 2019.
