Abstract: "The commercialization of agriculture, and in particular export cropping, has often been blamed as a cause of poor nutrition. Critics contend that if the resources used to produce agricultural exports were used instead to produce food for the local economy, the problem of malnutrition in many countries could be significantly reduced, or even eliminated. Proponents argue that by exploiting comparative advantage and generating faster growth for the overall economy, export cropping raises incomes and improves nutrition. In order to identify policy measures that can enhance positive and minimize harmful nutrition effects, IFPRI has undertaken research on the process of agricultural commercialization in five specific country contexts. This research report presents the findings for the Philippine case study."
