The Mandarin groves in Farm 03 have not been actively cultivated the past six years. Like many farms in Isabela, it has been savaged by typhoons almost every year but the most devastating was Typhoon Juan (International name: Megi) in 2010, the only super typhoon in 2010 and one of the most devastating typhoons ever recorded in Luzon. Last year, it suffered another setback when Farm 03 caught fire destroying many Mandarin trees. In spite of all these tragedies, most of the Mandarin trees still survived, and some still bearing fruits in spite of the neglect.
