Rodolfo Alburo, Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II, said the water system amounting to P5.86 million and the post-harvest facilities, which include 450 square meter solar dryer and 36 square meter warehouse, with a total cost of P2.05 million, will improve the agricultural activities and living conditions of the farmers in the countryside.
