Agricultural Support Projects for Brgy. Hingatungan

Recently, more than P31-million worth of agricultural support projects was turned over by the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) to the local government unit (LGU) of Silago, Southern Leyte. The projects were common service facilities (CSFs) amounting to P2.2-million, communal irrigation system (CIS) amounting of P24.8-million and potable water supply (PWS) amounting to P4.3-million. All projects were appropriated for Barangay Hingatungan, an agrarian reform community.
 
The irrigation system project is expected to supply water to 153 hectares of rice fields in the area and potable water supply for 2,000 residents. Both projects are funded by the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) through the third phase of the Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Project (ARISP-3) under the Program Beneficiaries Development (PBD) component of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP).
 
On the other hand, the farm machineries which include the four hand tractors, four flatbed dryers, and two threshers were funded under the Agrarian Reform Communities Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCCESS) for the agri-enterprise activities of the Hingatungan ARB Cooperative.
 
DAR Regional Director Eliasem Castillo puts forward that with the project mentioned above which are now in place, the agricultural production in the area, particularly rice, is expected to improve in the succeeding crop season. Thus, it is also expected that the household income of the 500 agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) will increase.
 
Moreover, the project aims to have a significant impact to the National Rice Program of the Department of Agriculture in attaining rice sufficiency for the province and hopefully the country.
