Agriculture is one of the most prominent industries in the Philippines, employing 32 per cent of the population and producing 11 per cent of the nation’s GDP.

Levity is currently running trails across the largest banana plantation on the Philippine island of Mindanao, spanning more than 400,000 hectares and producing over nine million tons of bananas each year. The agricultural specialist’s products will also be used with pineapples and other fruit and vegetables at plantations across the Philippines.
