Copra and coconut products review

Creator: Gonzalez, E. L.

Language: English

Subject: Copra—Philippines; Coconut products—Philippines

Abstract: Despite the heaviest copra arrivals on record which totalled 839,794 bags, Resecada averaged P9.91 in September which was 18.25% better than that of the previous month and also higher than any September of previous years except that of 1936. Receipts of copra in Manila for the first nine months of the current year exceeded those of last year for the same period by about 900,000 bags and were much greater than the totals for any year except those of 1938 and 1940. At the rate copra is being moved to Manila, the trade expects to find that copra receipts for 1941 would reach the highest mark in the entire history of the industry.

Coir spinning and the production of sandbags

Creator: Cruz, Eugenio E. ; Cortes, Felipe

Language: English

Subject: Coir industry—Philippines; Coconut products—Philippines; Sandbags—Philippines

Abstract: The Philippines, in endeavoring to decrease her importation of foreign commodities, has embarked on industrial ventures with varying success. Some of these have been proved failures, others have been pronounced successful, while still others are yet in the experimental stage. To the last or so-called ex- perimental ventures belongs the infant coir sack industry, which became a part of the country’s industrial scene when sandbags were produced for the CEA on May 14, 1941. The government entity financially backing the enterprise is the National Coconut Corporation, which undertakes sandbag production principally through its Manila Coir Unit No. 1, located in the premises of the Bureau of Plant Industry, Manila, and which shoulders the turning into finished products, besides its own output, of coir yarns and burlap received from other units of the Corporation established in Manila, Tayabas, Laguna, Pangasinan, Rizal, Albay, Bulacan, Batangas, Mindoro and Marinduque.

If I were a coconut planter

Creator: Marquez, Francisco D.

Language: English

Subject: Coconut industry—Philippines

Abstract: "If I were a coconut planter—and I am as such as one because I have taken the cause of the coconut planter at heart, —- I would not be depressed over present conditions. Of course, having set a standard of living for myself and for my family, and having enjoyed a few luxuries during the days of plenty, it will be difficult for me to adjust myself to a new set of conditions. I have children to send to school. I have a duty to them and to myself. I shall therefore make an effort to improve not only my own economic position but also that of the community in which I live. For this reason, I would lay down for myself a rigid personal program."

Flour substitute from coconut

Creator: Torres, P. E. ; Jiao, Rosita ; Gilbuena, Teodora

Language: English

Subject: Wheat products—Philippines; Coconut flour—Philippines

Abstract: Among the necessary imports that would be difficult to secure in case of blockade is wheat flour. We import annually around 107 million kilos of flour valued at nine million pesos. The Philippines do not grow wheat from which we can manufacture wheat flour. A substitute for wheat flour in necessary if the local demand is to be supplied. Locally, there are several materials from which flour substitute can be made, such as casava, corn, camote, ete. Comparatively speaking, there is very little area devoted to the growing of these starch bearing materials, and before a large scale production of flour substitute from these materials can be made possible, an extensive agricultural development will also have to be made.
