Nueva Vizcaya Province

‘Kasibu is the citrus capital of Luzon’

Kasibu is just a small town in Nueva Vizcaya Province, with an area of 318.8 square kilometers. Still, it is making a name for itself, becoming the citrus capital of Luzon.

The Department of Agriculture Agri Chief Dr. William D. Dar signed the administrative order on June 24, 2022 declaring Kasibu, Nueva Vizcaya as the citrus capital at least of Luzon, with its 529 hectares land devoted solely to cultivation of Rutaceae, or citrus sinensis.

Citrus has been considered as one of the top high-value crops in the Philippines, with the Cagayan Valley as one of the major citrus-producing regions, to which Kasibu belongs. Kasibu is the source of calamandarin oranges, mandarin (satsuma and ponkan) and pomelos and constitutes the majority of the total average production volume per harvesting season.
