Farm output slows to 2.32% in Q3

Philippine farm output slowed in the third quarter of the year following the decline in value of production of hogs and fisheries, the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) reported Wednesday.

Data released by the PSA showed farm output grew by 2.32 percent in July to September, from 2.98 percent a year earlier and 2.34 percent in the second quarter.

Agriculture production was driven by a decline in hog production and in the fisheries subsector, Rolando Dy, executive director, Center for Food and AgriBusiness, University of Asia and the Pacific (UA&P), told GMA News Online.

"Sharp livestock—mainly hogs, and fisheries—pulled down agri," Dy noted.

The livestock sector grew by 0.91 percent in July to September, compared with 4.03 percent in the third quarter of 2016. Likewise, the hog subsector grew by 0.91 percent from 4.54 percent in the same comparable period.

The fisheries subsector declined by 4.2 percent from a decline of 2.58 percent.

Dy said better growth rates could have been reported in other subsectors such as rice, sugar, banana, coconut, chicken, and eggs.
