Proposed Irrigation Project in Brgy. Daja

The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) and the National Irrigation Administration (NIA) are now closely looking into the possibility of constructing an irrigation project in Barangay Daja Diot, San Isidro Leyte, due to the demand of the farmers in the area. At the moment, the area is dependent on using rain water that yields small harvest. The project will benefit 90 agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) with vegetable farms who fetch water from a distance.
 
DAR Regional Director Eliasem Castillo disclosed that funding for this project will come from the Asian Development Bank (ADB) thru the second phase of the Agrarian Reform Communities Project (ARCP-2). Castillo explained that irrigation will be constructed in the area especially that this vegetable production of the Daja Integrated Primary Agribusiness Marketing Cooperative (DIPAMCO) is a priority project of the DAR under the Agrarian Reform Communities Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCCESS).
 
ARCP Deputy Project Manager Herman Ongkiko asked NIA to design the proposed project before June 15 so it can be included in the deliberation of the National Sub-Project Approval Committee (NSAC) on June 30 and could be implemented as soon as possible. NIA Regional Manager Romeo Quiza promised to give priority to this project.
 
Agricultural Enterprise Development Enterprise Coordinator Mathilde Vergara mentioned that the ARBs started their high-value crops production in 2010 in partnership with the East-West Seed Company which adds to their income.
 
Similar projects are also being proposed in the towns of Calubian and Villaba.
