Bingawan never goes dry and here's why
MetadataShow full item record
More than half of Bingawan is devoted to rice but the fields are rainfed, meaning they are dependent on rain for their irrigation needs, according to Leticia Celeste, the municipal agriculturist. Mayor Ted Peter Plagata said the Southeast Asian Fisheries Development Center (Seafdec) has extended assistance to farmers by supplying fingerlings for propagation in the SFRs until the industry became stable. Tilapia, hito and freshwater bangus can now be harvested in huge volumes from the SFRs. They have become the answer to the problem of iron efficiency here.
