DAR provides Php22.6-M rural projects for farm families of Rizal, Nueva Ecija

manilatimes 1Farm families of Rizal, Nueva Ecija got an early Christmas gift as the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) recently turned-over to the local government two rural infrastructure projects worth Php22.6 million.

The 5.37-kilometer farm-to-market road worth Php18,036,467 connects Barangays Casiligan, Canaan West, Canaan East and Gen. Luna.

DAR Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer Jocelyn Ramones said the concreted road would make it easier for farmers to bring their produce, crops and vegetables to the market where they could sell them at fair price. Before, much of their harvest ended up rotting in their backyard or being sold to visiting trader at very low price.

“Now that these barangays are linked by this road, it will open more business opportunities for farmers with their neighboring barangays,” said Ramones.

Also turned over to the local community was a potable water system (PWS) worth Php4,562,969 million for the Canaan West Potable Water Service Cooperative-Across the River agrarian reform community in Rizal. The PWS consisted of an elevated steel tank, distributions lines, a deep well and a submersible pump.

Ramones said the PWS which was implemented under the Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Project (ARISP), now on its third phase of implementation, would provide the agrarian reform community clean and safe drinking water.

Prior to the PWS project of DAR, Ramones said, the 130 farming families of Rizal used to fetch water from deep wells and other sources that were often contaminated with disease-carrying organisms.

“Some sources [of water] have high levels of toxins which causes acute and chronic illnesses,” said Ramones.

She added: “DAR’s provision of potable water systems is aimed at reducing water-borne diseases in the community, in addition to providing water for backyard livelihood opportunities like vegetable production and other similar activities.” PNA
