DRAGON FRUIT INDUSTRY UNDER THREAT. The Provincial Government of Ilocos Norte (PGIN), through the Sustainable Development Center and Provincial Agriculture Office, is cultivating solutions to address the threats of plant diseases on major high-value crops in the province, including garlic, mangoes, and dragon fruit, pictured above. Farmers are experiencing fungal diseases on their plants, particularly Anthracnose which causes halo-like concentric lesions on stems and fruits. (photo by PGIN-CMO)
