I. PLANTATION AREAS AND FARM PRODUCTIVITY

The total sugarcane plantation area for crop year (CY) 2017-2018 was 418,256 hectares (has.). As shown in Figure 1, the plantation area decreased by over 3000 hectares compared to CY 2016-2017.

  • 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.
