    For the 3rd Quarter of 2021, Rice is the majority shareholder of 53 percent of the combined total household stocks, Corgrain got the remaining 47 per cent of the total volume. This change in scenario was due to the huge decrease in corn land harvest area in the province which lost more than 1,900 hectares over the 2020 harvests level.

     Palay area harvested of which most of the households derive the stocks topped 439 hectares more compared to the same quarter last 2020. This period records the lowest volume level of rice found in the households at only 5,613 metric tons.
