The DA is primary agency responsible for the promotion of agricultural development by providing the policy framework, public investments, and support services needed for domestic and export-oriented business enterprises. It is mandated to improve farm income and generate work opportunities for farmers, fishermen and other rural workers.
The main website contains limited data, only the financial performance reports of a handful of years and does not have downloadable files.
However, the following online resource provides rich data on agriculture gathered by the DA and housed online by the Philippines Statistics Association (PSA) and supported by the Food and Agriculture Organization.
The CountrySTAT is a web-based system that integrates national food and agricultural statistical information to ensure harmonization of national data and metadata collections for analysis and policy making.
The site contains data from multiple years, across the main agricultural products of the Philippines (e.g. palay, corn, livestock, poultry, fisheries, etc) in a navigable format.
