dar web news 2 pix may 8 2014 400The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) turned-over two (2) farm-to-market roads worth 15.27-million to improve the accessibility of farmlands in Alfonso Castaneda, Nueva Vizcaya.

The P10.99-million Campsite-Deculiat and the P4.28-million Purok 10-Purok 6 Balintugon concrete farm-to-market roads, which stretch to more than two (2) kilometers, are expected to benefit 1,490 agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs).

Regional Director Marjorie P. Ayson said farm products can now be delivered directly to various local markets in good quality because the road projects provide better and faster access. “The farmers can now conveniently transport their more than 150 hectares of palay, tiger grass and vegetables farms to the local traders,” she said.

The turn over ceremony of the projects were attended by Congressman Carlos M. Padilla, Governor Ruth R. Padilla, Mayor Annie C. Bayawan, and DAR Undersecretary Rosalina L. Bistoyong along with other DAR and local officials.

Mayor Bawayan said the projects that were turned over are very beneficial to her constituents, especially the students during rainy season. “Now, tricycles and other types of transportation can pass along the road comfortably,” she added.

The farmers, on the other hand, were in jovial mood seeing the development in the community. Manong Boy, a farmer-beneficiary of Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP), said the roads will benefit not only the present population but also the next generations.
