The Philippine Statistics Authority will conduct the Monthly Palay and Corn Situation Reporting System (MPCSRS) for 2020. The MPCSRS serves as a monitoring system of the growing conditions and actual plantings of palay and corn. Moreover, the survey aims to update the Palay Production Survey (PPS) and Corn Production Survey (CPS) estimates of the current quarter based on standing crop, and estimates for the next quarter based on planting intentions.
For this quarter, the survey will be conducted on the first five days of February and March. It covers sample palay farming households in sample palay producing barangays in all provinces in the region.
All the data and information collected by the hired Statistical Researchers from sample farmer-producers shall be kept strictly confidential and shall not be used for purposes of taxation, investigation or regulation as provided under Article 55 of RA 10625.
