In DavOr, NIA-11 completes a P22.5 million irrigation project.
DAVAO CITY, Philippines – The Davao Oriental Irrigation Management Office (IMO) reported Friday that the National Irrigation Administration in Davao Region (NIA-11) has handed over the PHP22.5 million Luzon Small Irrigation Project (SIP) to the farmers of Barangay Luzon in Governor Generoso, Davao Oriental.
According to NIA-11, the project will benefit 50 hectares of land and 33 farmers through the Luzon Rice Farmers Irrigators Association (LURFIA) Inc.
On February 16, Jimmy Ceros, the NIA-11 Division Manager who handed over the Luzon SIP, underlined the importance of taking proper care of the facilities in order to reach future generations.
He went on to say, “NIA will stay committed to aiding local government units.”
Jerry Rosales, president of LURFIA, responded by thanking the agency for the initiative and promising to take care of it.
“On behalf of the farmers, we pledge to be good custodians of the facilities that will help their community flourish,” he said.
Rosales also envisioned being able to contribute to their barangay’s food production.
Municipal councilor Lindo Maquiling, on the other hand, hailed NIA-11 for its tremendous assistance to the barangay’s farmers and promised to venture into high-value crops as well.
“Not only on rice,” Maquiling noted, “the administration sees a lot of possibilities.”
