  • quote from fdaray: Again , I would say, "can trees substitute  for crops ? Moabot ang panahon, kahoy na ang daghan ug wala nay crops.

    a balance between planting trees and agricultural crops will have to be struck to ensure that people continue to have basic food source - unless people are ready and willing to munch on tree leaves when they get hungry.

    the best way to maintain said balance would be to plant trees in watersheds and areas that have steep inclines that are prone to erosion and therefore not conducive to farming, and establish farms where the terrain is flatter and more suitable to agricultural production.

    in plain and simple terms: mananon tag kahoy sa bukid ug bakilid, mag farm ta sa patag.

    well said, bolingitboy.

    It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.

    Sakto jud. Dili nato supakon ang terrain.

    Ang nakita nahong problema naa sa implementation, unsaon man nga ang atong local government can--and do--get its act together.

    Looking further however--and from a larger economic perspective--another important consideration would be the concept of comparative advantage. After all, Bohol does not exist in isolation, and therefore there is no need for us Boholanos to produce everything that we need.

    A hypothetical scenario: After years of massive and successful reforestation, Bohol has become a virtual forest aside from ample areas reserved for the needs of human habitation. Agricultural production is reduced to a minimum. However, the province earns so much money from its forest resources such that it can easily afford to buy food items from neighboring provinces, even from other countries.

    (Mag-reserve jud hinuon tag luna para sa typically Bohol crops, sama sa kinampay, he he.)

    Mao ne ang tama, dili lang ta magsigi ug tanom ug kahoy, mananon sad ta ug fruits, crops , rice and corn our staple food.

    Miagi ko diha sa  zigzag road padulong sa chocolate hill, nindot na kaayo ang man-made forest diha. Wala na gyud ko kakita  ug basakan o maisan dihang dapita. Puro na lang kahoy.

    Time will come nga aduna na tay logging industry sa Bohol in the near future.

  • Hapsay kaayo pagkasulti nimo, Bolingitboy. I agree with you 100%.

    I can't help but notice that despite Bohol's taking the lead in agricultural production and forest cover in the country, there are still swaths of land that are idle and backyards that are untended (including mine). At this point, there is still room for expanding crop production. We have not reached yet the point of having to choose between crops and trees kay sub-optimal pa man ang atong cultivation.

    Maayo pud unta'g ang 10,000 hectares nga gi-commit sa gobernador sa Jatropha katong mga bukid ug bakilid. Kay ug pati patag tamnan ug Jatropha, basig makaapekto sa rice self-sufficiency program nga mao ra bay plataporma nga gipangandakan ni DA Sec. Yap.

    i actually have the same hopes... the regional hub which is cebu does not have the capacity to grown its food requirement as well as basic resources such as potable water. this present condition should give bohol leaders the impetus to follow a development path that will see bohol as the bread basket of central visayas. indeed, there is still room to plant more crops, my own backyard included :-)

  • I myself want to do some farming when I settle there for good, hopefully next year. Bisag sa gamay ra nga luna, I would like to be part of making Bohol the bread basket and rice bowl of the Central Visayas.

    is there any update on that?

    see? how the political turmoil in Tagbilaran easily overshadows the issue. i'm afraid it's only TB that keeps shouting here. and they are as calm as the damn of Talibon.

    maayo baya pod ang pinoys. kuwang lang tag technological side. yet, bisan kabao lang atong gigamit, kasagaran, naay daghang gatoon nga tagalaing nasud diri sa ato gumikan kay ang atong mga farmers naa poy gikasugyot.

    and remember the rice terraces of banaue. a marvel. kamot lang gani tingali gigamit ana.

  • Maka-update nato ani si Bay Zec, kay naa man gyud siya's sala ni Guv.

    Ang last update nako ani sa taho sa GMA, niingon si Gov. Erico Aumentado nga na-forward na niya ang pertinent documents on Talibon Dam sa Sandigayanbayan. Pangutana lang pud kung naa na'y igong ebidensiya to pursue the case on the people involved.

    Mas angayan man tingali i-priority ang paghuman ani kay direktamenteng makaapekto sa panginabuhi sa tawo ug sa plano to make Bohol the bread basket of Western Visayas.

  • Padayon, Belle, aron manguma ta's Bohol pohon. Maayo man gyud naa'y formal background aside from practical experience.

    Ang recession-proof zone daw sa US kanang agricultural belt. Kung kita manguma, di gyud ta gutmon kay pwede ra man ta mamupo'g utan ug mangutkot ug kamote ug taggutom na jud.

  • Sa akong observation ngano nga daghang idle land karon diri sa Bohol tungod kay ang mga batan-on karon wala nay hilig sa panguma. Kadaghanan tua sa abroad, OFWs, seaman, cargivers and domestic helpers.
