AGRI-PINOY CORN PROGRAM
Print Email

Corn is the second most important crop in the Philippines. About 14 million Filipinos prefer white corn as their main staple and yellow corn accounts for about 50% of livestock mixed feeds. Some 600,000 farm households depend on corn as a major source of livelihood, in addition to transport services, traders, processors and agricultural input suppliers who directly benefit from corn production, processing, marketing and distribution.

Corn is also processed into high value products, such as cornstarch, corn syrups, corn oil, gluten and snack foods.

The Department of Agriculture’s Agri-Pinoy Corn Program aims to increase production of quality corn and also cassava for human consumption, feeds and industrial uses, as well as empower the farmers and increase their income, thereby improving their quality of life.

Overall strategy is to fast track the expansion of hybrid corn, cassava and other feed crops production to achieve food and feed self-sufficiency, enhance the competitiveness of the domestic livestock and poultry sectors through cheaper feed inputs as well as generate jobs in rural communities.

... Inventory Valuation Overview Learning Team B Zhra Ghavam, Rochelle Ingram, Chris Staphylaris, and Glorina Tukes QRB/501 31 January 2013 Instructor: David Libhart Inventory Valuation Overview The inventory a company holds often accounts for a significant portion of all assets with a direct correlation to the balance sheet. Inventory includes assets intended for sale, assets in production, and assets that will be used for future production of goods. A company’s ending inventory can be calculated by adding the value of any beginning inventory with net purchases then subtracting the cost of goods sold. The equivalent mathematical representation is: Ending Inventory = Beginning Inventory + Net Purchases - Cost of Goods Sold (Inventory valuation, 2010). While there are numerous industry recognized standards for a valuation of inventory, three of the most common valuation systems include First-In, First-Out – FIFO, Last-In, First-Out – LIFO and Just-In-Time – JIT valuation systems. First-In, First-Out Goods processed or received by an organization are placed in holding as First-In, First-Out; this inventory system is used to track product for use and revenue gained. In the FIFO inventory valuation system, assets or inventory received first are the first ones to be......

Pharmacies in particular, are now making their systems computerized since that helps them minimize the time and efforts consumed by using manual system. Point-of-Sale Inventory System is one of the essential components of a successful business. It is a modern replacement for cash register in retail applications. It can help to record securely all the sales and customer’s orders and track products. A sale refers to the exchange of product or services for an amount of money or its equivalent while inventory, on the other hand, is the total amount of items and the act of counting them. A pharmacy owner must know the precise number of items in their storage areas in order to place orders and control losses up to date. Hence, computerizing both Sales and Inventory System will make an easier and faster transaction among the customers as well as monitoring the stocks of the products. Furthermore, the system also gives the person up-to-the-minute and detailed information on each item in your inventory. He/she will know exactly how much inventory comes in; is on-hand now, and where it goes. In fact, most entrepreneurs these days find that computerizing a system gives them a far wider range of information with less effort....

...Introduction An inventory system is basically a process whereby a business keeps track of the goods and material it has available. In its simplest sense it can be done manually by a count at the end of each day. In this way it is possible to keep a record of the goods coming in to the business and goods being sold. However this is only really appropriate for small businesses that do not have a lot of stock. For larger business it is more likely that a computerized system will be required. Transaction processing systems are commonly used to operate businesses. In this era, manual transactions evolved into computerized ones. Manual inventory systems turned out to be slow and inaccurate resulting to problems like running out of stocks and slow computations of product prices being bought by the customers. The degree of success of a business greatly depends upon controlling the merchandise inventory. The continuously improving and upgrading of computer usage into more powerful and useful applications has made managing business transactions a lot more efficient and easier. Today, businesses use the computer to assist in controlling and monitoring many aspects of the businesses, since manual approach in data processing could no longer meet the demands of increasing volume of transactions. Background of the Study Inventory is the term used for compiled list of goods. Inventory is important process in effective management of a business. The Company named Fast Services......

...THE BASIC INVENTORY SYSTEM The basic inventory problem that the firm is now facing is that Joan Glass is holding minimal stock on hand, evidently proving that she is working with the Lean inventory system. This system is a strategic method which is a credible and desirable system, but on the same note it poses profitable implications of the firm such that if excess stock needed at any given time there is none available due to decreases with in-process inventory levels and associated carrying costs thus causing major problems. With this problem the firm also faces the repercussions of additional costs and problems such as: drastic changes in transport costing; damaged materials; interrupted integration; long lead times; late supplies; unsatisfied customers; inability to build up strong working capital; inaccurate forecasting of present sales and future sales and cost of the firm. Joan is un-able to use other cheaper methods of transportation such as road and ship transportation, due to her taking upon multiple last minute orders, thus resulting in her using the Airfreight method. This method is preferred as its travel times are much quicker than most other transport methods given that she has limited time to supply to customer, with this advantage the major downfall of using this method is that is that it brings about a huge financial loss on the company (Moncka,et al,2009). “Look at these air freight bills! Here’s one for R955—more than the damn part is worth.”(President...
