DAR turns over 43-million worth of irrigation projects in Camarines Norte

PIAnewlogoCAMARINES NORTE, April 1 -- The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) recently turned over a PhP 43 million worth of irrigation projects in Camarines Norte that would provide sufficient water supply to increase rice yields and land productivity in the area. Regional Director Rodolfo S. Pangilinan said the two projects which was funded under the Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Projects Phase III (ARISP 3) are the rehabilitations of Santol Communal Irrigation System worth PhP 25,631,728.00 and  Minasag Communal Irrigation System costing PhP 17,546,686.00.

Pangilinan said that the improved Communal Irrigation Projects (CIPs) have the capacity to irrigate 218 hectares of rice lands and expected to benefit 51 agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) who are members of Santol Irrigators Service Association Inc (SISA Inc.) and Minasag Bida Association Inc. (MBIDA Inc.). A total of 493 ARBs from the entirety of two barangays will likewise benefit from the grant.

The areas have a potential for substantial increase in production through the application of appropriate water control measures where nearly all the farmers within the area are smallholders.

Irrigation has been a major factor for increasing rice and land productivity by providing sufficient water supply to raise yields. But because irrigation in the locality requires collective investment, operation and maintenance, provision of the same in support to rice sector has become the major thrust of some government agencies including DAR and NIA for the gain of many farmers.

Pangilinan urged the two ARBOs to be vigilant in keeping the systems with the National Irrigation Administration (NIA) to sustain its usability so that more generation of farmers could benefit from the project.

Mayor Emelita T. Mendoza and the Chairpersons of the two ARBOs, Editha Bellen and Juvel Fomera expressed their gratefulness when they finally signed and received the turn-over documents from RD Pangilinan and PARO Olayres of DAR.

For their part, barangay officials and NIA staff pledged an active support for the projects.  The recipient ARB Organizations were also thankful for the huge benefits the projects would bring to the ARC and ARBs.

ARISP III is a foreign-assisted project funded under the 27th yen loan package of the government of Japan under the JICA. It kicked-off in the province of Camarines Norte in 2009 with a total project package of PhP 137.5 million covering the towns of Sta. Elena, Mercedes and Vinzons.

Also present during the turn-over and acceptance ceremony were Sta. Elena Local Chief Executive Emelita T. Mendoza, Camarines Norte PARPO II Roseller Olayres, and representatives of NIA, Engr. Emma Manlangit and Engr. Nestor Tiangco and the barangay councils of Poblacion and Rizal, Sta. Elena, Camarines.
