Agricultural Production of Sagada

Written By (sagada genuine guides association inc). on Monday, July 27, 2009 | 10:27 PM

There are 1,572 hectares of land devoted for agricultural production in Sagada. The agricultural activities that the umili are engaged in are rice farming, growing white and yellow corn, root crops (i.e., sweet potato or camote, cassava), legumes (i.e., Baguio beans, string beans and peanuts), leafy vegetables (i.e., cabbage, native pechay, and wongbock), producing fruits (i.e., bell pepper, chayote, American tomatoes) are mostly grown in the western part of the municipality; root vegetables are mostly grown in the western part of the municipality. Some of these are potatoes, carrots, and radish). On the other hand, permanent crops (i.e., citrus, pears, bananas, persimmon, avocados, papaya, pineapple, coffee and coconut) are perennially produced.

Sweet potato or camote thrives in all barangays. It is planted within the backyards for home use and supplemental feeding for swine. Commodities are sometimes exchanged or give away. However, subsistence agriculture somehow shifted to commercial agriculture. The baranggays in the central south, particularly Balugan, are already engaged in commercial vegetable farming. This practice has increased since 1995 when the road from central ili to balugan was constructed. Ankileng also started commercial vegetable production. The vegetables are sold either in Sagada, Bontoc, Baguio, Manila and Nueva Vizcaya.
