ORNAMENTAL HORTICULTURE OF ZAMBOANGA CITY
INDUSTRY SITUATIONER

 
SITUATIONER:
 
The Ornamental Horticulture industry in Zamboanga City, particularly the cut flower sector, is still young but growing business activity. Total output has been insufficient to meet the demands in the local market. High cost of seedling material and farm inputs and adequate knowledge in production techniques are among the bottlenecks that prevent local producers to compete with growers from Davao, Cebu including growers from neighboring Asian countries.
 


Mr. Wilson Henry Go-  one of the leading and pioneering horticulturist in the city at his farm in Barangay Mercedes

There are about forty identified growers engaged in commercial production in the city. This number does not include the numerous hobbyists growing a variety of orchids and other ornamental plants located in the barangays. Of this number, production is estimated at an average of 2000 dozens per month. On the aggregate, over 50 hectares are devoted to the production of variety of orchids, selected species or ornamental plants, anthuriums, roses, bromeliads, gerbera, mums and others.

Among the various problems the industry is facing are lack of market information, poor technology and production inputs, entry problems of imported seed stocks and working capital.

The focus of the industry is to increase production capacity, conduct of technology seminars to introduce new production techniques, establish linkages with concerned agencies top facilitate entry of imported seed stocks and assist in the sourcing of Capital needs.
