ATI-Caraga and Mars Cocoa Development Center tandem in Advocacy

ATI-Caraga and Mars Cocoa Development Center tandem in Advocacy

   The Agricultural Training Institute – Caraga partnered with the Mars Cocoa Development Center (MCDC) in one noble cause of advocating the development of the local cacao industry. MCDC which is located in Malagos, Calinan, Davao City is known for their valuable efforts in training cacao farmers and conducting research of new cacao varieties.

   Mr. Peter Cruz, MCDC Manager, enthusiastically shared his expertise in the whole aspect of production management of cacao as he served as Resource Speaker during the Training on Cacao Production conducted by ATI-Caraga last May 15-17, 2013 at ATI Center, Los Angeles, Butuan City. Among the topics discussed were cultural management practices, establishment and management of shade crops for intercropping, propagation techniques, pests and diseases management, as well as harvest and postharvest management.

   Being one of the priority crops under the High Value Crops Development Program, ATI supports the government’s efforts in promoting the cacao production and profitability, encouraged by the increasing demand for cacao beans in the global market.
