FAO Suitability Analysis as a Tool in Identifying Constraints to Sugarcane Production in Negros Island, Philippines
      Ryan T. Sarimong
Abstract: The need to optimize land use has never been greater than at present, when rapid population growth and urban expansion are making areas available for agriculture a relatively scarce commodity.Locating specific sugarcane areas in Negros Island and their specific constraints are paramount to properly manage the current and future use of these arable lands. Thus, this research was designed to determine sugarcane production related constraints of selected soils in Negros Island and to recommend management strategies to address these constraints.Suitability analysis was done following the FAO suitability analysis scheme. Results of suitability analysis served as basis in identifying constraints of a particular soil type when used for sugarcane production.
