Malogo irrigation eyed to boost
rice production in third district

The building of the P1 billion Malogo River Irrigation Program will give the farmers in the third district of Negros Occidental a boost and an option to further cultivate sugarcane or other crops, especially rice, Provincial Agriculturist Japhet Masculino said.

Bidding for this project has already been conducted and now needs more public consultation before it starts construction.

Earlier reports in the DAILY STAR had noted that the Malogo project, that is proposed to be constructed from 2018 to 2020, will irrigate 8,625 hectares of farmlands within E. B. Magalona and Silay, and will cost about P934.94 million.
