The area to be developed for abaca plantation is located near “ Sabangan ha Tagoloan” or the head waters of Tagoloan river which is the most sacred ground of the Bukidnon Tagoloanons as well as other tribes of Bukidnon. Abaca farming in this area is very suitable due to high soil fertility, high rainfall, extensive shade trees, existing farm to market road, and availability of workforce.
