cavendish 2The Department of Agriculture (DA) has ordered a stop to “ pole vaulting,” an anomalous practice that has been hounding the Cavendish banana export industry.

     To start off the drive, DA Secretary Proceso Alcala has ordered the Bureau of Plant Industry (BPI) to adopt rigid controls on quarantine processes to allow only accredited exporters to ship out bananas.

An agency of the BPI, Plant Quarantine Service (PQS) in Davao City, the major loading point for export bananas in Southern and Central Mindanao, is establishing a database for the banana industry to accredit the qualified exporters of Cavendish bananas.
