piaTANDAG CITY, Jan. 15 (PIA) - More farmers in Surigao del Sur will receive lands as the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) will distribute around 4,666 hectares of agricultural land this year under the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP).

This volume of lands to be acquired this 2014 is part of mandatory targets to be accomplished and will be distributed to more or less 600 deserving and qualified agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs).
