Abstract

This research was conducted due to the average low rice yield in irrigated rice growing areas in the wet and dry season. This is considerably low in Cagayan province compared to rice producing province counterparts. The experiment was based on descriptive-correlational design, covered two farming ecosystem. Nine (9) municipalities and eighteen (18) barangays were chosen considering the top three, middle three and the lowest three rice producers with a total of 395 respondents. Stratified random sampling, Slovins formula and a semi-structured survey questionnaire were used. Descriptive and inferential statistics together with the Stochastic Frontier Analysis (SFA) were tools in the analysis of data to determine the factors influencing productivity. Factors like socio-economic profile, cultural management, climatic and environmental, support services, issues and constraints were considered to have effect on irrigated rice productivity. Multiple regression analysis results showed that few cultural management practices, climatic and environmental factors and as well as socio-economic factors were found to have positive significant effect to rice productivity. Stochastic Frontier Analysis results showed that the top 3, middle 3 and bottom 3 irrigated rice farmers are generally inefficient both in the wet season of 2013 and dry season of 2014 farm operation. Proper timing of planting, government support price to boost production and farmers should slowly convert their farms into organic system. Improve production efficiency are recommendations to address their most pressing problems.
