Pili propagation seminar slated
A one-day seminar on pili nursery and grafting will be held on Aug. 12 to answer the growing demand for grafted pili seedlings.
The Bicol Mail reported that the seminar will be conducted by contract grower PILIpinas and the regional office of the Department of Agriculture.
The seminar also seeks to increase the number of private pili nurseries. PILIpinas currently has 75 hectares planted to pili and at least 1,500 hectares still growing seedlings and waiting for distribution.
Participants will also be taught how to intercrop pili seedlings with cacao, chili, papaya and herbs.
