Big Money Awaits Ginger Growers

GINGER is a crop that grows best in the Philippines. In fact, it is so versatile that it can be grown almost any part of the country. This is what I’ve learned from a friend who encouraged me to use our land in Bukidnon to grow Ginger crop. He told me that on regular season, a farmer will have a gross income of P300,000 (at P10 per kilogram with 30 tons yield from one hectare). During off-season, the gross income is higher by P100,000 as the price of ginger increases to P20 per kilogram. Wow! Big money awaits the entrepreneur who goes into production of good quality ginger.

I have to consult first the Department of Agriculture for my feasibility study and the Department of Trade and Industry for it’s possible market. Our land in Bukidnon has been idle for the past 10 years. I guess, this is the time now to venture into farming.

I hope makafarming na kayo. If I have a land that vast, naku, iccultivate ko talaga. :) May God bless your endeavors!
