The Philippines is primarily an agrarian country, with about 23% of its population engaged in farming. In 2018, the agriculture sector alone contributed 8% to national GDP – 9.3% if we include forestry and fishing – according to data from the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA). Agriculture in the Philippines has been struggling with fragmentation and low adoption of technology. However, the sector enjoys good fundamentals given the country’s farming traditions, its large farming population, and its good global position as an exporter of coconut, sugar, and fish. The Philippines’ staple food is rice, which it produces but also imports in significant quantities. The country does not produce wheat or other small grains and also imports most of the dairy products it consumes.
