SRA, DAR Conducts Mapping And Soil-sampling For Sugarcane Block Farms

piaQUEZON CITY, Feb. 5 -- The Sugar Regulatory Administration (SRA) in coordination with the Department of Agrarian Reform recently conducted mapping and soil-sampling on the proposed site for Sugarcane Block Farming Project of DAR and SRA in Polangui, Albay.



“To map out the 30 hectares of sugarcane farms in Polangui, a Global Positioning System (GPS) was used for accuracy. Soil sampling was also conducted to determine if the Ming variety of sugarcane, which SRA suggested the farmers to plant, will be best on these soils. And we found out that the type of soil here is indeed good for the Ming variety,” said DAR Regional Director Luis Bueno, Jr.

Bueno said a 1.5-hectare demo farm will be established where the SRA’s experts will demonstrate to farmers the advantages and potentials in planting the Ming variety.

“Trainings and study missions to other sugar block farms will also be provided to farmers to enable them to appreciate the technologies adopted by other sugarcane farmers in the country,” added Bueno. (DAR)
