Overview of the Sugarcane Industry

Updated October 2017

I. PLANTATION AREAS AND FARM PRODUCTIVITY

The total sugarcane plantation area for crop year (CY) 2016-2017 was 423,995 hectares (has.). As shown in Figure 1, after two consecutive years of significant decrease in the total plantation area from CY 14-15 to CY 15-16, the total area for this crop year increased considerably. The said decrease in the plantation areas may be accounted for by the conversion of sugarcane plantations to plantations for other crops. Moreover, based on the data collected in CY 2015-2016, 55% of the sugarcane areas are situated in Negros Island, 21% are in Mindanao, 14 % in Luzon, 7% in Panay and the remaining 3% in Eastern Visayas.

Trivia

  • On December 4, 1934, the Sugar Limitation Law (Act No. 4166) was passed which provides for the limitations, regulation and allocation of sugar produced in the Philippines including the processing and marketing thereof.  It was later amended authorizing the representation of planters and millers in the Sugar Quota Administration.
