Corn production volume in the Philippines 2011-2019

Growing corn varies depending on the area, and its production cycle is different in all parts of the world. In the Philippines, corn production is based on the landscape and topography of an area. In 2019, the production volume of corn in the Philippines was almost eight million metric tons, higher than the produced quantity of eight million metric tons in 2018.

Impact of crop production in the agricultural sector

Aside from rice, corn is considered as another staple crop in the Philippines. The declining production in corn resulted in the decline of the agricultural sector’s real GDP. In 2018, the real GDP growth of the agricultural sector was only 0.9 percent, three percent lower than the previous year.

Land availability is vital for agricultural crop cultivation. A lack of arable land consequently decreases crop production. In the Philippines, about 14.2 million hectares of land had been classified as alienable and disposable in 2017. This land is public domain that is not needed for forest, mineral purposes, or national parks and may include commercial land that is suitable for the trading of goods and services. That being said, a lack of land area for major crops affects the agricultural principal exports industry.

Livestock farming

Another important industry in agriculture is livestock farming. Livestock farming benefits not only large-scale businesses but also small-scale businesses. Raising chicken, pigs, and cattle by small-scale farming can be done in the backyards of these farmers. As of 2017, the number of chickens in poultry farming amounted to around 175.3 million heads.
