Davao Philippines’Cavendish Bananas is known deliciously sweet.

  • Philippine is now the 2nd Largest Exporter of Bananas in the world.
  • The majority of these shipments are destined for the growing regional markets of China, the Middle East and, to a lesser extent, Russia to satisfy their demand for fresh produce
  • Exports of Philippine bananas for the last quarter of this year are expected to rise following China’s lifting of restrictions on Philippine exports early this month.
  • Below are the 15 countries that accounted for the highest dollar value worth of bananas exported from the Philippines during 2015:
  1. Japan: US$176.9 million (40.2% of total bananas imports)
  2. China: $109.2 million (24.8%)
  3. South Korea: $51.6 million (11.7%)

  6. Saudi Arabia: $12.9 million (2.9%)
  7. Kuwait: $8.7 million (2%)
  8. New Zealand: $6.5 million (1.5%)
  9. Hong Kong: $5.2 million (1.2%)
  10. Singapore: $5.1 million (1.2%)
  11. Malaysia: $2.3 million (0.5%)

  15. Qatar: $912,000 (0.2%)
  • Among the above countries, the fastest-growing consumers of Philippine bananas exports since 2011 were: Bahrain (up 822.2% in value), Saudi Arabia (up 638.1%), Malaysia (up 312.3%) and Kuwait (up 195.4%).Production system ranges from backyard to highly integrated operation with the latter catering to the export market.
  • Weak demand in the EU.
  • Total import of fruit by the Philippines from 2008 till 2013. The highest volume of imports occurred in 2012 reaching 240,477MT while the lowest was in 2008 to 187,265MT. The average annual growth rate was 3.68% during this time period.
  • Philippine farms produced a total of 8.65m tonnes of bananas valued at P117.15bn ($2.6bn) in 2013, down from a peak of 9.23m tonnes worth P108.13bn ($2.4bn) the previous year, according to PSA data. Concerted efforts over the past two decades to expand banana production have led to the commodity becoming the country’s most valuable crop as well as its most profitable agricultural export.
  • The past years, the yield dramatically been reduced due to destruction brought about by the strong typhoons that hit the country particularly the major producing areas in Mindanao. Another calamity was the most recent “El Nino.”  Nevertheless, these are not typical and Mindanao is not a typhoon belt.
  • Overall, the average annual growth rate was 0.26% and 16%, respectively for production and area for the six-year time period.
  • The farms are generally small in size (1-5 ha) with minimal care resulting to low yield.
  • Big farms are typically managed by Cooperatives, Organizations and Investment Companies

Medicinal Plants Common to Philippine Soil

The most famous and highly demanded at this point as far as I know is…

  1. Moringa also called as Malunggay andHorse Radish (Moringa Oleifera Lam)

Leaves

  • Human Food
  • Animal Feeds
  • Natural Medicine
  • Better source of mother’s milk
  • Fertility enhancer
  • Natural pesticide
  • Viand and Delicacy ingredients

Pods

  • Human Food
  • Natural Medicine
  • Source of Seeds

Seeds

  • Edible Oil/Biofuel/Perfume Oil
  • Source of moringa seedling
  • Cosmetics and skin care ingredients
  • Fertilizer
  • Water Purifier
  • Medicine
  • Animal feeds

Flower

  • Medicine
  • Health Drink

Roots, Bark and Gum

  • Medicine
  • Alley Cropping

To those who have not known of moringa’s nutritional value, below is miracle like benefits…

= 7 x more Vitamin C than Orange

= 4 x more Vitamin A than Carrots

= 4 x more Calcium than Milk

= 3 x more Potassium than Banana

= 3 x more Iron than Spinach

= 3 x more Vitamin E than Almond

More on Health Benefits

  • Dietary benefits in response to increased health consciousness in US/EU, moringa being low in trans-fatty acids
  • High oleic acid content good emollient
  • Nutritional benefits ideal particularly for dietary supplements

Moringa Oil Benefits

  • Low iodine value (better than diesel)
  • Low cetane (ignition) number (better than both coconut fat and diesel)
  • Cost is comparable to alternatives (e.g. Soybean oil)
  • Could potentially obtain carbon credits in future, which would further enhance value of planting Moringa

On my own observation and opinion, having a farm or manufacturing for moringa products is one of the most profitable and fulfilling among other medicinal plants.   Employment and income potential will reach as far as distant rural areas and native’s locations. It will even benefit other functions: truck drivers, port operators, others. As to our study, this will benefit 100 plus direct and indirect workers in its 1-3 years of start-up operations, not to mention the number of people to work for suppliers, logistics, health workers to provide medical support for our workers, etc.

Moringa also helps purify water and offer cheaper alternative to mechanical filtration.  Study shows that moringa is better than in bio fuel source and technology. Moringa trees grow easily from seeds or cuttings. They grow quickly even in poor soil and bloom 8 months after planting.

I currently desire to put up a farm in Tagaytay Philippines.  I can provide a credible business plan for enthusiast or if you are willing for a joint venture investment.   My business plan and proposal is available upon request at my direct e-mail denissalvatierra@yahoo.com
