Land and Use

In 1946, about 96 percent of the land area is devoted to agriculture. Most people are farmers raising rice, corn and vegetables, sugar canes, garden products, fruits of various names and kinds. This group’s food production is sufficient for actual needs but without reserve for contingencies. A lot of people raise chickens, eggs, and pork from poultry and piggery projects. Partly they do this commercially but not fully. Coffee raising is also engaged in to a certain degrees. Fishing is carried on quite extensively on Laguna Bay waters. Until the late 1970s, Santa Rosa maintained its role as a food producing municipality actively producing and trading rice, corn, vegetables, livestock and fishes.

The general economic activity of the city would be well described by the actual land use that took place. Land use implications of this became pronounced as more agricultural areas gave way to industries, commercial and residences.
