DAR inaugurates P10-M irrigation facility system in Sorsogon

 

MANILA, Jan. 28 – The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) on Thursday said it has teamed up with the National Irrigation Administration (NIA) to turn over a P10.2-million communal irrigation system (CIS) to the Banawang Irrigator’s Association in Casiguran, Sorsogon. 

The project is made possible through the Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Project Phase II (ARISP II), which is funded by the government of Japan under the Japan Bank of International Cooperation (JBIC). 

In support of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP), it delivers useful support services for the agrarian reform communities (ARC) nationwide to develop their lands. 

ARISP II is one of the highly recognized projects under the agency’s official development assistance (ODA) and has achieved a 96-percent accomplishment rate in its infrastructure development component. 

This represents 487 infrastructure sub-projects which includes 133 irrigation and drainage facilities, 184 farm-to-market roads, 82 rural water systems and 68 post harvest facilities such as solar dryers, warehouses and Agrarian Information and Marketing (AIM-C) buildings. 

The irrigation system covers a total of 28 hectares of riceland in Brgy. Tigbao and Banawang, Casiguran. 

With the irrigation’s completion, the rice production in the area rose up from 50 to 60 sacks per hectare to 80 to 90 sacks. 

“Our efforts to improve the small farmer’s level of productivity is paying off as we make you no longer dependent on the wet season as the sole source of water for your farms. Furthermore, the responsibility for its maintenance is in your hands.” Regional Director for Region V. Celestina Tam said during the turn over. 

With a gleeful heart, the farmer beneficiaries of the Casiguran ARC Cluster B accepted the facility promising to utilize it for the benefit of everyone concerned. Over a hundred farmer beneficiaries benefit from it. 

Salvador Hife, the association’s president said, “We have been waiting for this for years and we will be forever grateful to DAR and Japan for what they have given us.” (PNA)
