A New Management Structure for Agriculture
MetadataShow full item record
The country has one Department of Agriculture (DA) (or ministry in other places) for annual crops like rice, long-term crops (like coconut and rubber), high value crops (fruits and vegetables), livestock and fisheries. The Philippines has some 10 million ha. of farmland and over 250 million ha of coastal waters and exclusive economic zone (EEZ), including the nearly two million ha of Benham Rise. And yet, fish is expensive and seafood exports are very low.
