This promise is not forgotten for farmers.  Farmers, irrigator's association, and farmer's cooperative will be having a good reason to continue their passion in farming for the Philippines if House Bill 5670 or Free Irrigation Act will be passed into a law.

Owners or operators of corporate farms, plantations, fishponds and other non-agricultural crop users drawing water or using drainage facilities of the National Irrigation Administration (NIA) are not qualified beneficiaries of the program.

Under the bill, the NIA will provide technical and financial assistance to farmers and local government units.

In P3.35-trillion national budget this 2017, P2 billion is allocated for irrigation fee subsidy.
