The aim of this study is to assess the comparative advantage in rice production in the Philippines for the past three decades since 1966 We have found that the country gained sharp improvement in comparative advantage in rice production in 1979 when yield rose remarkably due to the diffusion of pest‐ and disease‐resistant modern rice

Global rice production more than tripled between 1961 and 2010 with a compound growth rate of 2 24% per year (2 21% in rice- producing Asia) Most of the increase in rice production was due to higher yields which increased at an annual average rate of 1 74% compared with an annual average growth rate of 0 49% for area harvested


Jul 17 2015Rice is an essential part of a meal in the Philippines and if these causes continue to take part in the production of rice an even greater lack of supply of rice can happen which can affect the price of the rice rice producers (farmers) and the millions of people living the Philippines

It also aimed to determine which among these problems significantly affects rice production Simple statistical tools and production function were used in this study The results revealed that common problems encountered by rice farmers were high cost of inputs low price of palay lack of capital labor problem lack of postharvest facilities

According to the Government agricultural growth and productivity are constrained by the high cost of production inputs In the Philippines fertilisers and pesticides typically account for 20-30 per cent of production costs while livestock feeds account for about 70 per cent

– Make accessible to rice farmers the appropriate rice production and postharvest machinery and equipment through to the farmer cooperatives associations (FCAs) – Promote among Filipino rice farmers the use of efficient and cost reducing rice mechanization interventions

The cost pattern differs due to variations in both cost per acre and yield Cost per acre and cost per bushel are shown in Figure 3 for the cash rent corn farmer The 2009 spike in production cost per acre is largely offset in the cost per bushel chart due to the high corn yield of 2009
