I. The Introduction

The value of production in agriculture and fisheries focuses on the measurement of the whole sector (i.e., agriculture and fisheries) and its commodity group (crops, livestock, poultry, and fisheries).  The value of production is at constant 2018 prices and at current prices. These serve as input in the estimation of the Gross Value Added (GVA) in Agriculture and Fishing.

In response to a more granular data, Provincial Product Accounts (PPA) is being complied.  PPA for all the 14 provinces in the three pilot regions, namely: MIMAROPA Region, Central Visayas, and Northern Mindanao were released in 2021.  For 2022, CAR, CALABARZON, Western Visayas, Eastern Visayas, Davao Region, and SOCCSKARGEN are the six (6) additional pilot regions of PPA.  Meanwhile, eight (8) regions: Ilocos Region, Cagayan Valley, Central Luzon, Bicol Region, Zamboanga Peninsula, BARMM, and Caraga are the additional PPA pilot regions for 2023. 

As input in the estimation of PPA, specifically GVA in Agriculture and Fishing, Provincial Value of Production in Agriculture and Fisheries needs to be generated.

II. Data Sources

The generation of the provincial value of production requires data on volume of production and farmgate prices. These data are sourced from the following PSA surveys and administrative-based records from other government agencies:

III. Methodology

The valuation of production in agriculture and fisheries by province is being prepared annually. It is done as follows:

At Constant 2018 Prices

Valuation at constant prices is done by multiplying the volume of production of each commodity by the 2018 average farmgate price.

At Current Prices

Valuation at current prices is done by multiplying the volume of production of each commodity by the average farmgate price during the reference year.

IV. Concepts and Definition of Terms

Value of Production at Constant Prices - refers to valuation of transactions, wherein the influence of price changes from the base year to the current year has been removed.

Value of Production at Current Prices - is the value based on prices during the reference year.

V. Dissemination of Results

The Provincial Value of Production in Agriculture and Fisheries Report is being released annually in the PSA website.  The following regions will start to release this report in this schedule:
