Tagalog News: Greening program bilang pagkontra laban sa tagtuyot

Manila (4 September) -- Bilang paghahanda sa epekto ng mahabang tagtuyot sa hinaharap, malawakang pagtatanim ng puno ang isinasagawa ng Department of Agriculture.

Ipinahayag ni Agriculture Secretary Arthur Yap na ang nasabing programa na binansagang "Soil and Water Army for Resources Management o SWARM" ay nauna ng inilunsad sa Northern Luzon Agribusiness Quadrangle (NLAQ) at nangangailangan ng isang milyung volunteer para sa pagtatanim ng gulay, fruit trees at forest trees sa mga priority areas na na-identify ng DA.

Kinilala ni Yap ang mga SWARM priority areas na kinabibilangan ng lalawigan ng Kalinga, Ilocos Sur, Isabela at Nueva Ecija na may kubuuang 2.24 ektaryang watershed.

Sakop din ng SWARM ang repair ng mga small water impounding projects o SWIP kung saan umabot sa 4,000 magsasaka ang mabibiyayaan at ang rehabilitasyon ng may 19,600 ektaryang upland areas sa Hilagang Luzon.

Nakapaloob din sa SWARM project ang dredging at paglilinis ng water reservoir, mga kanal, spillway at dam.

Ayon kay Secretary Yap, ilang mga lugar sa Mindanao katulad ng Misamis Oriental, Bikidnon, Maguindanao, Davao Del Sur, Davao Oriental, Lanao Del Norte, South Cotabato, Zamboanga Del Norte at Zamboanga del sur ang mapabilang sa SWARM.

Umaabot sa kabuuang 6.6 milyong ektarya ng lupain sa Luzon at 1.41 milyon sa Visayas ang sasakupin ng SWARM, pahayg ni Yap. (pbc/PIA 12) [top]
