Philippines: Farmers save rainwater for dry seasons

4 Aug 2016, PIA, Philippines - gov

Farmers in San Miguel are taking advantage of the rainy season by saving rainwater for their rice farms’ use during dry months. Small farm reservoirs (SFR) help them do so. SFRs also act as fishponds to provide extra income during the first cropping season, and the water from SFRs for rice production in the second cropping season, particularly before or during summer.
