CSPPS WP No. 2017-11: Agriculture and Development in Island Communities: Results of Household Survey of Rainfed Lowland and Upland Rice Farmers in Milagros, Masbate

This paper summarizes the findings of the household surveys in Milagros, Masbate that were used as baseline data for monitoring and evaluation of the CRDES Phase 2 Project. Data were obtained from two sets of survey: baseline survey of 150 rainfed rice farmers in 2015 and 90 upland rice farmers in 2016. Results show that Milagros still remains to be a highly agricultural municipality where majority of the people still depend on agriculture as their main source of income. Rice is the main crop planted by respondents and it is not enough to suffice their daily needs. Regarding enhancing their productivity and income, there is a great opportunity for improvement. Farmers are very driven to learn new ways of farming and are very motivated to improve their yields.
