Philippines' Rice Production

The Philippines is an agricultural country, and rice is the staple food for Filipinos. It is included in our everyday meals and is already part of our food culture. Also, rice farming is a source of income for most Filipino farmers.

This November, we are celebrating National Rice Awareness Month. In connection with this, the government is making efforts towards rice sufficiency and improving the lives of farmers through the Masagana Rice Industry Development Program of the Department of Agriculture.
