Gross National Product &
Gross Domestic Product by Industrial Origin
 

Gross Value Added in Agriculture, Fishery and Forestry

AFF contracts

AFF declined by 2.5 percent from 2.1 percent growth last year boosted by the growth of Forestry, Other Crops, Poultry, and Coconut including Copra while those that lagged behind were Corn, Palay, Sugarcane, and Fishery.  Major contributors to growth were Other Crops, Poultry, Coconut including Copra, and, Livestock.

Palay and Corn pulls down Agriculture growth

Palay declined by 11.4 percent from 5.1 percent growth last year due to the effects of the El Niño phenomenon.  The dry spell pulled down area harvested and yield in the major palay producing regions of Cagayan Valley, Western Visayas, Northern Mindanao and SOCCKSKSARGEN.  Likewise, Corn skidded further to negative 16.8 percent from negative 3.4 percent recorded last year due to the said unfavorable weather conditions experienced in Cagayan Valley, CAR, Western Visayas and Northern Mindanao.
Coconut including copra maintained its growth at 1.7 percent from 1.2 percent in the same period last year.  The gain in coconut production was attributed to the increased number of bearing trees in Mindanao regions and the strong demand for young and mature coconuts.

Banana maintained its growth at 1.3 percent from 5.1 percent registered in 2008.  This can be traced to the increase in the number of bearing hills and increased area harvested for Cavendish variety due to bigger export demand.

Sugarcane production further dipped to negative 4.6 percent from negative 3.5 percent last year as a result of the considerable decrease in area harvested in Tarlac and Nueva Ecija coupled with the decline in yield in Pampanga.

On the other hand, Other Crops rebounded to 2.3 percent from negative 0.4 percent growth documented last year due to the increased production of mango, tobacco, eggplant, onion, cassava and Others of Other crops.

Poultry grew by 2.0 percent from its year ago growth of 4.1 percent due to the slight increase in the number of dressed chicken from dressing plants complemented by recovery in production among rehabilitated commercial farms which were affected by last quarter’s typhoon. The growth of Poultry can also be attributed to the Increased inventory of layers in Central Luzon, CALABARZON, Central Visayas and Northern Mindanao.

Similarly, Livestock production grew, albeit at a slower pace, by 0.5 percent from 2.2 percent posted last year due to lower stocks of fatteners and tight supply of piglets as observed in Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon and CALABARZON. The number of slaughtered animals in major carabao producing regions like Ilocos Region, Bicol Region and Western Visayas also went down.  On the other hand, there were significant increases in the number of animals slaughtered due to high demand for beef and chevon in Central Luzon, Western Visayas and Northern Mindanao.

Aquaculture softens decline of Fishery

Fishery reversed its growth of 3.8 percent posted last year to negative 0.7 percent with only Aquaculture posting growth.  The modest performance of aquaculture was brought about by the availability of crablets and increased mudcrab areas; additional harvest from newly installed marine fishpens; and, increased of seaweeds production due to good weather conditions and expansion of seaweed nurseries.

Production in Municipal fishery declined due to the high cost of fuel forcing some fishermen to stop operation and shift to other income generating activities. Reduced appearance of some species due to hot weather was noted in Zamboanga City, Sarangani, Sultan Kudarat and South Cotabato,

Commercial fishing likewise experienced production loss as a result of reduced fishing operations due to limited fishing grounds and high operations cost.  Likewise, fishing trips in Western Visayas decreased because of lesser appearance of some species.  Hot weather due to El Niño also resulted in lower volume of fish catch in traditional commercial fishing grounds in Davao Oriental.

Forestry rebounds

Forestry accelerated its growth to a double-digit gain of 30.3 percent from negative 18.1 percent registered the previous year.
