Phangyuel Gewog agriculturally well known for rice, vegetables and fruit plants which grow by virtue of its location, soil and its climate condition. The Gewog basically grows little of everything but the main crops grown are paddy, wheat, sweet buckwheat as food crops. The main fruits grown in the Gewog are orange, persimmon, plums and guavas etc. The Gewog also grows variety of chilies, radish, green leafy vegetables and tomatoes. But the productivity of the agriculture was hindered by the water scarcity problems. Thus, most of the farmers are depending on the monsoon rain for their cultivation. As a result the Gewog administration is mainly focusing its plan budgets for the RWSS and irrigation channel project. Gewog had a plan for the construction of 34kms Baychu Yuwa to ease the water scarcity problem. However, the irrigation channel passing through Kashi Gewog, Phangyuel Gewog couldn’t obtain public clearance from Kashi Gewog. Health services in the Gewog is catered by Bajo BHU in addition to one outreach clinic (ORC) situated at Goenkha. In 2009-10 Gewog has completed construction of more ORC at Katekha and chungserkha. The former serves the two chewogs namely, Phangyuel-Koomchhi and Goenkha. Whereas later serves three villages namely chungserkha, Domkha & Wampoekha. The road network connects all the villages in Phangyuel Gewog except few scattered houses. Wangdue to Baylangdra provides as the main road and all the roads in this chewog are taken from there. More than 90% of the villages in Phangyuel Gewog have road connectivity.
