Black Pepper

Black pepper is dubbed as the ‘black gold of the agronomic crops’ due to high economic returns. It is one of the highly-used, valuable ingredients in the food processing industry, specifically in restaurants and other food-related businesses. This lead intends to recommend appropriate utilization of the unproductive land located in Barangay Demoloc, Malita, Davao Occidental, including the establishment of a black pepper farm, along with its production systems and market potentials.
