Abstract

zAssessment of the quality of fallow lands in northnern Mindanao via a farm survey and soil sampling. Only 21 percent of commercial vegetable growers fallowed land, with an average re-cultivation of four years. Some land fallowers had a net return from vegetable crops, but most lost money. Timber trees (usually Eucalyptus) and fruit trees were usually planted to rejuvenate the fallow lands. Authors call for study to select proper tree species and tree/vegetable systems. - (SLD)
