Mung Bean / Mongo

  • For the third quarter of 2017, production of mung bean reached 1.50 thousand metric tons which was 4.1 percent higher than the 1.44 thousand metric tons level in the same quarter of 2016.
  • The increment could be attributed to additional area planted in Cagayan Valley due to availability of rehabilitation seeds from the Department of Agriculture-Regional Field Office No. 02 (DA-RFO 02) and in Agusan del Sur due to increasing local demand.
  • Cagayan Valley was the top producer with 0.67 thousand metric ton contributing 45.1 percent to the country’s total output. Davao Region ranked second with 10.6 percent followed by Caraga with 7.4 percent.
