Rice Production in the Philippines

With so much land in the Philippines, especially in Mindanao, and with so much available labour, could it be feasible for the Philippines to produce nearly all of its rice? As it stands, the Philippines is one of the world's highest importers of rice.

I realise much of the land is mountainous. But the Debabawons of Agusan del Sur were growing rice on mountain-slopes without flooded terraces - and it was delicious - easily the nicest rice I've ever tasted!

Despite being mountains, there was still much flat land in the Philippines which seemed to me to be under-utilised, especially in Mindanao.
