Nine sugarcane workers, including four women and two minors, were killed in a massacre that left them riddled with bullets in Hda. Nene, Barangay Bulanon, Sagay City, at 9:45 p.m. Saturday.

BY MARK L. GARCIA

Sugar Regulatory Administration head Hermenegildo Serafica is expected to arrive in Bacolod City on Thursday to forge an agreement with the Coca-Cola Foundation to expand the irrigation systems of block farms in Negros Occidental.

A press release from Coca-Cola said SRA and the company will sign a memorandum of agreement to build water systems to augment the irrigation requirements of five block farms, or organized groups of small farmers, in the province.

The MOA will also forge the partnership between the two firms to enable the farmers to plant alternative crops for food security, giving them additional income.
