ONE WAY to maximize production in a farm is to grow compatible crops together. Just like at the Bolong Farm in Paraoir, Balaoan, La Union. They are growing together malunggay (Moringa oleifera)ย and pummelo.ย 

The combination is just right. The pummelo requires a lot of sunshine but it is all right to grow it between the malunggay trees because the malunggay does not have thick foliage.


The Bolong Farm, established by Dr. Daniel S. Bolong more than 60 years ago, has planted thousands of malunggay for the production of fruits, a favorite ingredient in the Ilocano pinakbet.


Dr. Bolong is a veterinarian who pioneered the commercialization of ipil-ipil leaf meal as ingredient in livestock and poultry feeds.


The diversified farm has Leghorn layers, beef cattle, dairy cattle, and fruit trees. The soil is basically poor and rocky but it has been turned very productive by utilizing livestock and poultry manure to enrich the soil.
