Reference Number: 2023-SR-008
The Palay Production Survey (PPS) is one of the major agricultural surveys conducted by the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA). This generates estimates on palay production, area, yield, and other production-related data that serve as inputs for policy making and programs on palay/rice. Specifically, the production data generated from the survey are direct inputs to the Value of Production in Philippine Agriculture and Fisheries and to the computation of Gross Domestic Product (GDP),
Moreover, the survey supports the data needs of planners, policy and decision makers, and other stakeholders in the agriculture sector, particularly the National Economic and Development Authority (NEDA), Department of Agriculture (DA) and its attached agencies such as Philippine Rice Research Institute (PhilRice), Philippine Council for Agriculture, and Fisheries (PCAF), and the general public.

By ecosystem, production from irrigated palay was at 22,744.58 metric tons produced this year, this output was 16.04 percent lower compared to the 27,089.66 metric tons produced in 2021. Similarly a decreased in volume of production in 2022 was observed in the rainfed ecosystem with the production dropping to 469.2 metric tons, from 2021 volume of production of 739 metric tons.

Areas of harvested palay decreased by 17.69 percent
