Increasing Corn Farm Productivity

Increasing Corn Farm ProductivityOnline Course on Increasing Corn Farm Productivity through the Use of Mechanization Technologies

Agricultural mechanization plays a vital role in sustaining and improving agricultural productivity. It enables farming operations more efficient, improve the timeliness of operation, increase cropping intensity and minimizes hard labor in the field. On the other hand, traditional corn farming practices are inefficient, laborious and expensive in terms of production cost.

In the Philippines, corn production is predominantly dependent on manual labor. Except for land preparation and shelling, the other corn operations such as planting and harvesting are done manually. With the adoption of appropriate mechanization technologies in corn production, better plant growth, increased yield, low operating cost and minimized postharvest losses are expected.
