December 12, 2015 — Farmers and Fisherfolks from the Municipality of Tagkawayan went on a study tour at Ato Belen’s Farm. They were particularly interested in organic agriculture as a means to mitigate the effects of climate change.

The durian is really adapted to many parts of Luzon. One proof is this two-year-old durian tree in the farm of Renato Belen which is already fruiting. Encouraged by this good stand, Belen has planted some three hundred grafted trees in one of his farms intercropped with rambutan. Belen grows the Munthong and the Chanee varieties from Thailand. In photo is Belen’s son Elmer. ■
