Abstract

Because the Philippines is an agricultural country, irrigation is essential in the community. According to the National Irrigation Administration (NIA), the country's agricultural lands total 10.3 million hectares. Around 3.1 million ha are considered irrigable and devoted primarily to rice and corn. However, according to a recent World Bank study, about 6.1 million ha are irrigable, including areas that are more difficult to irrigate. Because of its rice and other agricultural products, Nueva Ecija, a province in Central Luzon, is a very powerful province in Region III.Because of its endless rice farms, Nueva Ecija was dubbed the "Rice Granary of the Philippines." Other main crops on its land include onion, mango, calamansi, banana, garlic, and various vegetables. Irrigation has made a significant contribution for many farmers in Nueva Ecija who have made agriculture their livelihood. Automatic irrigation is the use of a device to operate irrigation structures so that water flow from bays can be changed even when the irrigator is not present.
