There is a tremendous potential in the Philippine vegetable sector. Annually, the country’s vegetable production is increasing by almost 2% and the growth of area being dedicated to planting vegetables is at 1.7%. Vegetable farmers in the Philippines show strong potential to compete with ASEAN counterparts for the $2 billion Asia-Pacific market which is expected to grow to $3 billion by 2021.
Vegetable production plays a fundamental role in fulfilling many of Philippines’ basic needs: food, feed, energy. Major vegetables and root crops include cabbage, carrots, lettuce, eggplant, tomato, onion, and chili.
