The bulk of production came from the second quarter, which accounted for 92.5 percent of the total palay output for January to June 2022. The remainder was produced from the first quarter. (Figure 2, and Tables 1 to 3)

By ecosystem, the huge volume of production for the first semester of 2020 to 2022 was produced largely from irrigated areas ranging from 88.8 percent to 91.3 percent with the lowest output at 33,348.68 metric tons produced this current period. On the other hand, rainfed production shared a range of 8.7 percent to 11.2 percent. (Figure 3 and Table 3)

Yield per Hectare
 
During the first semester of 2022, yield per hectare was registered at 3.48 metric tons, a decrease of 5.5 percent from the previous year’s same period level of 3.68 metric tons. (Figure 5 and Table 3)
 
For the 2022 first quarter, yield improved to 4.19 metric tons or 9.3 percent from 3.83 metric tons. On the other hand, the 2022 second quarter yield dropped to 3.43 metric tons or 6.5 percent from 3.67 metric tons.

CONCEPTS AND DEFINITIONS
Crop Production- refers to the quantity produced and actually harvested during the reference period. It includes those harvested but damaged, stolen, given away consumed, given as harvester’s and thresher’s shares, reserved, etc. However, it excludes those produced but not harvested due to low price, lack of demand and force majeure or fortuitous events, etc.
 
Harvest Area - refers to the actual area from which harvests were realized. This excludes crop area that was totally damaged. It may be smaller than the area planted.
 
Palay - refers to the local term for unhulled rice; also known as paddy or rough rice; scientifically called Oryza Sativa Linn.
 
Types of Ecosystem - refers to the type of environment where the palay was planted.
 
 Irrigated- area with irrigation facilities supplying water through artificial means like gravity, force/power, pump, etc. Irrigated area becomes rainfed only when irrigation system is no longer operational for the past two (2) years and beyond repair and there is no plan of irrigating the farm.
 
Rainfed- palay grown on this ecosystem has dikes that retain water and is solely dependent upon rainfall for its water supply. Rainfed can be converted to irrigated only if area is laid with permanent irrigation facility.
 
Metric ton - refers to a unit that is being used which is equal to 1,000 kilograms.
