Major Fruit Crops Quarterly Bulletin, October-December 2017

October 2017 to December 2017

Calamansi

  • For the period October to December 2017, the level of production of Calamansi was recorded at 28.03 thousand metric tons, a decline of 0.1 percent from 28.05 thousand metric tons during the same period of 2016. This was due to:
    • lesser application of fertilizer due to frequent rainfall in Zamboanga Peninsula (Zamboanga Sibugay); and
    • dropping of young fruits caused by strong winds and rains in Caraga (Agusan del Sur).
  • The largest share was from CALABARZON with 15.1 percent followed by Zamboanga Peninsula with 13.5 percent and Caraga with 12.9 percent .
