The impact of a Philippine irrigation project on labor intensity and income distribution

The impact of a Philippine irrigation project on labor intensity and income distribution

Irrigation management: Research from Southeast Asia: 141-161

Almost all farmers who received water from the new irrigation system in Iloilo, Philippines grew at least 1 crop of rice in the dry season, while farmers in rainfed areas grew more diverse crops and left most of their land fallow during the dry season. The total labour required for 1 ha of rice was similar on irrigated and rainfed farms but more hired labour was used on irrigated farms.
