CGPRT Crops in the Philippines: a Statistical Profile, 1990-1999

"CGPRT Crops in the Philippines: A Statistical Profile, 1990-1999" is the eighth in the series of the CGPRT Centre's publications providing specific and wide-ranging agricultural data focusing on coarse grains, pulses, roots and tuber (CGPRT) crops in Asia. An earlier series was published in January 1992 in collaboration with the Philippine Council for Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resources Research and Development (PCARRD) covering the period 1960-1990. In keeping pace with the previous publication, this updated volume covers eight crops: corn (maize), mungbean, soybean, groundnut, cassava, sweet potato, white potato and rice. Although not a CGPRT crop, rice is the most important crop in the Philippines in terms of area planted and production, hence it has been included in the series for easy reference and comparison. The statistical indicators are divided into five groups at geographic scales (nation, region and province), namely: i) General indicators: population, households, labour force, employment status, land classification, consumer price index, GDP, foreign trade, money supply and inflation; ii) Crop Statistics: major cereals: rice, coarse grains: corn; pulses: mungbean, soybean, groundnut; roots and tubers: cassava, sweet potato and white potato; iii) Commodity prices: monthly average farm gate price, wholesale price and retail price of listed crops; iv) Supply and utilization accounts: all listed crops; and v) Climatic data: monthly rainfall by selected station. A brief introductory text and graphic presentations of selected data are also included in this volume. We hoped that these datasets will be useful to policy makers, researchers, students and those involved in formulation and implementation of research/development projects not only in the Philippines but also in other countries.
