Monitoring of crops enhanced

April 29 - May 5, 2017

MAASIN CITY - Summer time is harvest time in Southern Leyte, and the importance of the harvest of our farmers’ products to feed our growing population is fast becoming a major concern for food security.

The Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA) here said that the agency has been monitoring the crop production of the entire province.

PSA Head Eutemio Llevado said that they had been conducting enhanced survey operation as to the exact volume of harvest of local farm crops and livestock.

“The crops include cereals, fruit crops, non-food and industrial crops and vegetables and root crops,” Llevado said.

The different offices of the PSA in the country are aiming to integrate their respective food and agricultural statistical information to ensure accuracy of the data, for these to be used for national and local analysis and correct government policy making.

The PSA is also targeted for ISO 2015 accreditation, with the PSA Regional Office as the pilot organization. ISO 9001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for a quality management system. (By :DAHLIA ABIERA ORIT)
