Mass Registration for Coconut Farmers
[Credits: Official Gazette ] Coconut Farmer's Production

The Philippines is one of the top exporters of coconuts in the world. In 2018, the country was ranked as the second largest producer. The production value of coconut in the country in that year amounted to approximately 91.8 million metric tons but had dropped to 14.8 million metric tons in 2019.

To revive the coconut industry, the Philippines Coconut Authority (PCA) under the Office of the President encourages coconut farmers to register in the National Coconut Farmers Registry System (NCFRS). The registration will be the basis for the provision of vital government assistance or programs and updating the coconut farmers participants.

On March 19, 2021 there were more than 1,000 farmers registered in the NCFRS. In the island of Palawan, 112 registered came from Barangay Panitian and Pinaglabanan, Quezon. The registration was attended by PCA Agriculturists Jonathan M. Dalajaban and designated staff from Municipal. Meanwhile, another 361 farmers in Barangay Langogan, Salvacion, Maoyon, Maroyugon and Manalo in Puerto Princesa conducted by PCA Agriculturists Rommel F. Fababaer, Barangay Officials and Provincial Staffs.

The registration is open to owners, owner-tiller, grower, tenant, tenant-worker, worker-laborers in designated areas such as :
1. Provincial Office, New Government Center, Sta Monica, Puerto Princesa City
2. Techno Center, Brgy. Maasin, Brooke's Point
3. Mitra Hall, Brgy. Alfonso XIII, Quezon
4. Municipal Agriculture Office in every Municipality
5. Coconut farmers Organization in your area

Aside from these five, there will be a scheduled date for registration in different Barangays in Palawan. The owner of coconut lands Applicants for the NCFRS must bring proof of the ownership of the land and a Valid ID (Original and Photocopy). For the workers and tenants of the land, they must bring certificates from the Barangay and owner of the coconut proving that they are workers or tenants.

Through this registration, the status, data and land of the coconut industry in the country will be identified by the government. This will help the government to make programs for the farmers that will benefit them.

In February 2021, President Rodrigo R. Duterte signed a law that will give trust funds to the coconut farmers. The Republic Act 11524 also known as the Coconut Farmer and Industry Act, in which mandates the creation of a 50-year CFITF, as provided under a coconut industry development plan that is yet to be formulated by the Philippine Coconut Authority (PCA), an attached corporation under the Department of Agriculture (DA). The Act will help the Coconut Farmers to develop their lands and the local workers or tenants.

The Philippine Coconut Authority is a government agency that has the task to develop the coconut industry to the fullest potential, to be globally competitive,and efficient.

The Filipino coconut farmers are encouraged to register into designated areas in the Municipality, as this is the way that the government reaches out to aid, support financially and other needs.
