Technical Notes

Palay Production Survey and Corn Production Survey (PPS and CPS) are some of the major agricultural surveys conducted by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA). These generate estimates and forecasts on palay and corn production, area and yield, and other production-related data that serve as inputs for policymaking and programs on palay/rice.

These are quarterly surveys that cover sample farming households in sample barangays in all provinces except Batanes and include Zamboanga and Davao City. Data item gathered on this survey includes production, the area planted/harvested and yield by ecosystem and seed type; usage of seeds, fertilizer, and pesticides; source of irrigation water and adequacy, monthly distribution of production and area harvested; farm household disposition of production; area with standing crop, farmer’s planting intention for the quarter; and awareness and availment of palay and corn program interventions.

Production refers to the quantity produced and harvested for a particular crop during the reference period.  For palay and corn, harvest area refers to the actual area harvested during the reference quarter.

Area harvested - actual area from which harvests are realized.

Yield-an indicator of productivity derived by dividing total production by the area harvested.
