Kasuy is one of the many fruit species in the Philippines that has a strong export potential. Plus, its commercial production could be an important source of income for many Filipino farmers.

Although there is an increase in food demand due to the rapid growth of population, lesser and lesser people are getting involved in the agriculture industry that is the primary source of food production. In the Philippines, the average age of Filipino farmers is 57 years old. A few years from now, the majority of these farmers will be retiring, and there will be lesser farmers in the country. It is also reported in 2015 that there was a 1.5% decline in the enrollment in agricultural courses. These situations pose a serious threat to the food security of the country.
