URDANETA CITY  – Communicators in Pangasinan are set to get a fresh update on irrigation management as the National Irrigation Administration (NIA) holds its 3rd quarter assembly of  its Communication Advocacy Network (CAN) on Friday.
 
Engr. John Celeste, regional irrigation manager, said the CAN was established in April this year primarily  to inform the transacting public and the media of significant information and updates in irrigation management
 
Two interesting topics will be tackled in the conference. These are  the status of the Agno River Irrigation System Extension Project (ARISEP)  and the comprehensive implementation of the Alternate Wetting and Drying (AWD) technology.
 
“The conference will explain the relevance of the ARISEP in the agricultural community of the sixth District of Pangasinan while the AWD  technology would explain how rice production would increase throughout some areas in the fourth District of the province,” Celeste told the Philippine Information Agency (PIA).
 
Celeste said the ARISEP has a total service area of 12, 894 hectares and would benefit some 10,557 farmers. The project started in July 2015 and is expected to be completed by December 2017.
 
Additional lectures on participatory Demo Farm, cropping calendar and pattern of planting will also be presented.  A Memorandum of Agreement signing between NIA and the Irrigators Association   Federation  plus the turnover-of AWD farm inputs, will complete the event.
 
The National  Irrigation Administration, with its regional office located in Urdaneta City, is a government –owned and controlled corporation primarily responsible for irrigation development and management. Its other mandates include food security and agricultural modernization. (VHS/PIA-Pangasinan)
