MMSU distributes tissue-cultured banana seedlings


The Mariano Marcos State University distributed 1000 seedlings of banana (Kluai Namwa variety) to LGUs of Ilocos Norte.  Among the recipients include Pinili, San Nicolas, Solsona, Nueva Era, Vintar, and Pasuquin, Ilocos Norte.

The tissue-cultured banana were taken from Taiwan by Davao and later on given to MMSU through the Institute of Plant Breeding (IPB).  Each farmer was given five seedlings. The variety can be eaten as fruit or this can be processed into chips.  It is hoped that more farmers will benefit from the initial seedlings distributed to LGUs.
