Electronic commerce or "e-commerce" may be new for most Filipinos, but it's already making inroads in the Philippines' business climate in the past few years.

With one of the fastest-growing online presence worldwide (pegged at 556% during the last five years), the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has projected a 25% share of e-commerce in the Philippines' gross domestic product (GDP) by 2020.

In fact, crop heat stress has cost the Philippine agriculture sector at least P2.5 billion annually, from 2007 to 2010, due to stunted plant growth, resulting in reduced crop yields.
