Free irrigation services

Senator Cynthia Villar, chair of the Senate Committee on Agriculture and Food, discusses a proposed measure looking to provide free irrigation services to farmers. “The goal of government is to foster sustainable livelihoods among farmers through improvements in farm productivity and increased income. In the wake of typhoons and floods that devastated farm lands and the continuing threat of drought, the government should provide free irrigation service to revive the agricultural sector,” Villar said.
