5.1 Agriculture

Liloy has a wide range for agricultural development.  An analysis of the total agricultural production shows that rice and corn production is quite sufficient to meet the demands of the rice and corn eating population.  However, with the projected increase of the population, demands for these products would likewise increase.

Hence, production of cereal products as well as root crop production shall have to be intensified to meet the demands of an increasing population.  With the spiraling cost of farm inputs, farmers should be encourage to adopt the much improved agricultural practices to enable them to have more production at a lesser cost.  Inter-cropping of high-yielding crops such as cacao, coffee, e and others, under coconut trees should also be encouraged.

To maximize agricultural production, logistic support should be given to the Municipal Agricultural Office, especially the Agricultural Technicians in providing transport facilities to fully supervise the farmers regularly.  Farm-to-market roads must be constructed and/or rehabilitated to all weather use to give easy access to farmers in bringing their products to the market.

Fishing, is one of the major sources of livelihood in the municipality especially those people living along the coastal barangays.  Unfortunately, however, pirates and some lawless elements lurking just around the corners of the province are sometimes harassing fishermen.

Thus, the Local Government must seek measures in protecting the fishermen by organizing Bantay Dagat Volunteers.  Patrol boats should also be provided to patrol the coast as well as to apprehend those involve in illegal fishing activities.
