Corn growers and feed millers are urging the government to establish a sound data system that would show country’s supply and demand for these commodities and help industries in making wise production and business decisions.

The Philippine Maize Federation Inc. (PhilMaize) and the Philippine Association of Feed Millers Inc. (Pafmi) said the lack of data on the country’s corn supply and demand makes it hard for them to have better coordination.

A sound data system may also avert displacements of local corn production due to imports and glut, which all result in decline in farm-gate prices of the crop, according to industry players.
