ORIENTAL MINDORO, Philippines – SEARCA's project on Upgrading the Calamansi Value Chain towards Improving the Calamansi Industry in Oriental Mindoro, funded by the Department of Agriculture-Bureau of Agricultural Research, identified possible areas for the establishment of demonstration farms to improve the existing production management for increased yield and off-season fruiting on 23-24 May 2019. 

The project team selected three demo-farms from each of the municipalities of Victoria, Naujan, and Pola, where the best practices in calamansi production will be showcased. These practices include the use of proven technologies and practices in irrigation, integrated pest management, correct fertilizer application, canopy management, off-season fruiting, and post-harvest handling.
