Idle lots in Kalinga to be converted into farms
by Larry Lopez / PIA

TABUK CITY, Kalinga – Kalinga’s contribution to the rice requirement of the country is seen to increase with the Masaganang Ani sa Nayon Project (Project MANA).

The Department of Agriculture’s Project MANA intends to convert 20,000 hectares of rainfed and idle lands for rice production in the province this year.

Joe Casibang, Kalinga Rice Program Coordinator, said the Project MANA sites are located in Pinukpuk, Tanudan, Rizal, and this city.

Project MANA involves two phases: identification and opening of potential rice lands that include rainfed and idle lands, and second is the provision of needed farming interventions through small irrigation systems.

For the farming interventions, DA is distributing free 150 units of mechanized water-pump and accessories. It will also construct small water impounding projects in Rizal and this city.

Casibang said the project is under DA’s effort to increase rice sufficiency level in the country by opening new areas for rice production.

Based on DA data, the country needs to fill-in additional five to ten percent of its rice sufficiency requirement.

The DA aims for the expansion of one million hectare rice areas all over the country for the attainment of food self-sufficiency by 2019.
