TECHNICAL NOTES
 
Major Fruit Crops Quarterly Bulletin (January-March 2020)
- The Major Fruit Crops Quarterly Bulletin provides updates on the production of banana, calamansi, mango, and pineapple. These crops are highlighted in the report on the Performance of Agriculture that the PSA releases quarterly.
 
Major Vegetables and Rootcrops Quarterly Bulletin (January-March 2020)
- The Major Vegetables and Rootcrops Quarterly Bulletin provides updates on production of major vegetables and rootcrops, namely, mung bean/mongo, potato, cabbage, eggplant, tomato, ampalaya fruit, onion, sweet potato, and cassava.
 
Major Non-Food and Industrial Crops Quarterly Bulletin (January-March 2020)
- The Major Non-Food and Industrial Crops Quarterly Bulletin provides updates on the production of major non-food and industrial crops, namely: abaca, coconut, coffee, rubber, sugarcane, and tobacco.
 
Crop Production
- is the quantity produced and actually harvested for a particular crop during the reference period. It includes those harvested but damaged, stolen, given away, consumed, given as harvesters’ shares, reserved etc. Excluded are those produced but not harvested due to low price, lack of demand and force majeure or fortuitous events, etc.
 
Industrial Crops
- are crops that are used as inputs to other industries.
 
Major Crops
- refers to the top 19 crops in the Philippines, other than palay and corn which collectively account for more than 60 percent of the total volume of crop production. These include coconut, sugarcane, banana, pineapple, coffee, mango, tobacco, abaca, peanut, mongo, cassava, sweet potato, tomato, garlic, onion, cabbage, eggplant, calamansi and rubber.
 
Non-Food Crops
- are crops other than those used for food consumption. These are crops growth for their aesthetic values such as ornamental plants and cut-flowers. These also include agriculture-derived products such as rice hay and coconut leaves.
 
Root Crops
- are crops with well-developed underground edible roots. They are classified into roots and tubers. Roots, which are more starchy and rich in carbohydrates, include gabi, ubi and white potato. Tubers include beets, radish, carrots and turnips.
 
Vegetable Crops
- are mostly temporary crops which are either classified agronomically as such or based on purpose for which they are used, like jackfruit which on its young stage, is classified as vegetable.
