Indisposed Weak Pinoy Mango
The Philippine Mango is one of the fruits most Filipinos loves to eat whether the fruit is ripe or not and one of the Philippine fruits that has high nutritional value which every Filipinos could enjoy and be proud of on the world. Actually the Philippine Mangoes or the Pinoy mango is the most love mango in the world because Pinoy Mango is said to be the best mangoes in the world and most exported fruit of the Philippines with a revenue amounting to 16 Billion pesos annually from an estimated 160,000 hectares of mango farm across the Philippines with Malungon of Sarangani Philippines as the leading municipality in the Philippines that produces largest production of mangoes with last year(2010) its mango plantation expanded into additional 2,00 hectares of mango plantation from 3,296 hectares with now 5,000 hectares of mango plantation.
But though the Philippines is said to contributes 3.5 % of world’s mango production, lately, the Mango Industry becomes lethargic or become indisposed due to inconsistent weather patterns and conditions which affect Mango farmers especially those in Mindanao or those in Sarangani Mindanao. The changing of weather condition has forced mango farmers to deliberately induce the Mango trees to bear fruits the hard way instead of the mangoes bear naturally. For typically, mango trees bear fruits during dry seasons and not during cold and stormy seasons; but because of inconsistent weather condition recently happening in the Philippines wherein almost weekly there is a typhoon, the production of mango have reduce into now 670,000 metric tons per year compare to usual 1M metric tons per year since the changing of Philippines weather patterns starting the year 2008.
The reduction of mango production annually is really big and alarming for this reduces also the income of Pinoy Mango farmers who rely on this kind of business; however, there is other means to get livelihood if mango industry in the Philippines declines.
The ultimate solution to this problem is if only Mother Nature will reduce hampering the Philippines with weekly typhoons; but what can we do about climate change though some blame it to those who do not love Mother Nature. No matter what environmental undertakings we do to avert the consequences of the growing climate change in the world, the earth will not wait us for it to spin its axis whenever the earth wishes to spin it on this way and that.
It is resist or accepts.
