The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) recently turned over a P3.1-million farm tractor to a farmers’ organization to help them increase farm productivity and their income.
A brand new, heavy-duty Massey Ferguson four-wheel drive tractor with implements was turned over to the Cebuano Small Coconut Farmers Multi-Purpose Cooperative (CSCFMPC) in Tupi, South Cotabato.
Chief Agrarian Reform Program Officer Engr. Nestor I. Villanueva, said that the 259-strong farmers cooperative would benefit from the tractor.
Cooperative Manager Aurelio D. Solon who formally received the tractor said “this tractor is such a big help. It will speed up our plowing and other preparatory activities before actual planting. This tractor would now be one of our services to our members.”
