Corn has become an emerging cash crop due to the introduction of various technologies in corn production. Many idle and barren lands were used to plant corn and eventually expand to sloping lands and protected areas. Since these areas are prone to soil erosion there is a need to introduce a suitable land use management approach with the appropriate combination of soil and water conservation practices. Together with the Department of Agriculture (DA), through the Bureau of Soils and Water Management (BSWM), CropLife developed a project called Sustainable Corn Production in Sloping Areas (SCoPSA) after convening other agricultural stakeholders. This project eventually became a national program that DA and BSWM are implementing in collaboration with the DA Regional Field Offices (DA-RFOs), DA-Agricultural Training Institute (ATI), Local Government Units (LGUs), CropLife Philippines, and various non-government organizations (NGOs) in selected provinces of the country.
