Provincial government keen on reviving rubber industry, trading centers opened province-wide

Keen on addressing the unstable market price of rubber cuplumps in the province of Cotabato and ensure that farmers avoid being shortchanged in selling their produce, Governor Emmylou “Lala” Taliño-Mendoza ordered the establishment of local rubber trading centers in strategic areas in the province which will be called as “Bagsakan ng Rubber Cuplumps”.

Early this year, the first –ever rubber trading center in the province was opened at Barangay Tamped in Matalam town where approximately 113, 209 kilograms of rubber cuplumps were sold to bidders and has given the farmers and tappers in the area an additional income of P709,900.00.

Implemented through Executive Order (EO) Number 42 Series of 2016, the Rubber Trading Centers guarantee farmers better and more accessible buying stations with prices relatively higher by P5-P6 than those offered by the private cuplump buyers in the province.

Since the launching of the said  centers on January this year, approximately P2.2 million was earned by farmers from barangays Pangao-an in Magpet, New Panay of Aleosan and Luhong in Antipas including the farmers in Kidapawan City and the municipalities of Arakan, Alamada, Pres. Roxas and Magpet as bagsakan centers were subsequently opened in the said areas.

The Office of the Provincial Agriculturist (OPA) facilitates the bidding process in the trading centers with the “bagsakan activities” set to happen twice every month in every municipality.

According to the province’s focal person on rubber, Engr. Agustin Arances, they are set to conduct bagsakan activities in the towns of Makilala and Tulunan this June. //IDCD-PGO/OZG//
