The irrigation projects are expected to be finished this year that will cover a 200-hectare agricultural land for Mila Cluster ARC in Dupax del Norte and 135 hectares of agricultural lands for Palabotan ARC in Dupax del Sur. The scope of the infrastructure project includes canalization, diversion works, canal structures, terminal facilities and project facilities.
 
These infrastructure projects under Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Project Phase III have commenced with construction phase after its ground-breaking ceremony held on each site headed by DAR Regional Director Marjorie P. Ayson, ARDO Paramon Furigay, Mayor Clarita Epi of Dupax del Norte, Mayor Romeo Magaway Sr. of Dupax del Sur, NIA Regional Manager Vicente E. Galvez and DAR Provincial Agrarian Reform Officer Joselito Garcia early this month of May.
 
The infrastructure projects of the Department under ARISP III are funded by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA). The irrigation construction involved shares of the local government units of Dupax del Sur and Dupax del Norte. On the other hand, the National Irrigation Administration will be in charge of the proper implementation of the projects once the projects are completed.
 
DAR Regional Director Marjorie P. Ayson contends that a good irrigation system is a basic need of the farmers. “Water is the source of life because where there is good irrigation there is good harvest. Good harvest means more profit for the farmers which will improve their quality of life” Ayson added. She further encouraged the 408 farmer beneficiaries who are stakeholders to the project for the maintenance of a good working condition of the irrigation projects.
