Municipality of Magpet

Brief ProfileGeneral InformationMunicipal OfficialsBarangays

magpet logoMagpet derived its name from the word “Malotpot” which means “a place where people gather in fellowship to partake of their packed lunch wrapped in banana leaves”.

An anonymous lexicographer inadvertently shortened the word “Linoppot” to “Maupot”. Much later and further spelled into “MAGPET” by a certain forester in his survey report. Consequently, the word “Magpet” stuck not only to mean the place but also the stream of the cool, fresh and clean water. By the present connotation, Magpet means “the verdant lands of countless waters”.

Geography
Magpet is located in the eastern part of Cotabato province and in the foothills of Mt Apo with generally slopping and mountainous terrain. It is bordered in the south by Kidapawan City and on the north by the Municipality of Arakan.

Natural Resources
Several rivers located in Magpet are being tapped for irrigation development and potential for hydro power plants. Others are the major tributaries to Kabacan River, which flows to many barangays of Magpet, to the Municipalities of Pres. Roxas, Matalam, Kabacan, Carmen and connects with Pulangi River. As a major source of water supply, it served for irrigation purposes, servicing thousands of hectares of rice fields not only in the Municipality of Magpet, but also in the various areas of the Province as well.

Mineral products found in the municipality of Magpet include non-metallic like limestone, sand and gravel which are the basic good materials for constructions while the red and white clay, considered as among the best in the country, are good materials for ceramic production.
