Australian Mungbean variety widely used by planters in Isabela

May 25, 2018- An interview with a mungbean farmer recently in San Mateo Isabela Province atest that instead of using a local variety of mungbean or monggo, they had been planting the Australian variety because they said that it’s high yielding and resilient in hot weather conditions.

The Mongo plant, usually planted after rice harvest has been the very famous crop coming from the whole Isabela Province. In the 2nd successful CVAARRD FIESTA (Cagayan Valley Agriculture Aquatic Resources Research and Development Consortium Farmers and Industry Encounters to Science and Technology Agenda) highlighted the importance of the mungbean, along with is are creative culinary and non culinary products was showcased at the exhibit and bazaar, dolls adorn with dresses of monggo were also displayed and the floats on their parade were also decorated by monggo as well as the participants on the Local Government Unit spearhead activities like street dancing and beauty pageant where also main attractions.

Monggo makes delicious sweet dessert, soup and viand in typical Filipino homes from all over the country. Western medicine on the other hand says that too much intake of monggo induces and increase in uric acid forming gout and not a very nice option for those having rheumatism or arthritis.

In a very recent interview with a Chinese doctor, she explained that eating mungbean or mongo does not in anyway increase one’s uric acid and doesn’t cause gout either, in face some culture in Asia and the Americas always has monggo on their diet and doesn’t experience having an increase in uric acid or arthritis/ rheumatism.

Speaking to Agriculture students from Isabela State University, the CVAARRD consortium Director advised the students to engage in business after graduation. the CVAARRD is a consortium of the Philippine Council for Agriculture Aquatic and natural Resources Research and Development (PCAARRD) a funding agency of the Department of Science and Technology (DOST).///Michael Balaguer, 09333816694,


Mga Natutuyong Taniman ng Munggo dahil sa init dinilig ng Ulan

May 9 2018- Kasabay ng taunang pagdiriwang ng “araw ng mga ina” tila nabigyang buhay ng magdamagang dagliang pa ulan ang lupang tinuyo ng matinding init dito sa bauan ng San Mateo lalawigan ng Isabela.

The suppose to be irrigated part of the model farm including the neighboring farm cooperators suffered from the intense heat brought experienced in parts of regions 1 to 3.

Ayon kay Dr William Medrano Consortium Director ng Cagayan Valley Agriculture Aquatic Resources Research Development (CVAARRD) sa ilalim ng Pjilippine Council for Agriculture Aquatic and Natural Resources Research and Development ng Department of Science and Technology (PCAARRD DOST) isang  industriyang nagbanadyang magpayaman sa mga taga Isabela ang munggo kaya dapat na magnegosyo na lamang ang mga Agriculture Students ng lalawigan sa halip na mangamuhan.

Mongo plants or the mungbean commonly known to us as the balatong can be raised wether dry, cold or wet but here in San Mateo they prefer planting it and raising it in a weel irrigated farm.
