Add'l land distribution set as CARP 29th year marked

visayan dailyIn celebration of the 29th anniversary of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program on June 10 this month, DAR Regional Director Stephen Leonidas assured local farmers of the continued distribution of lands in the region.

Leonidas yesterday assured local farmers that land distribution will continue unless the constitution will be amended.

“There are misnomers spreading that CARP does not exist anymore, but we need to clarify that this program is still ongoing until now,” Leonidas said, adding, “It is stated in the Constitution and it cannot be removed.”

He also reported that, through CARP, many local farmers in Negros have already improved their lives from being provided support services available in the agency.

Leonidas said that, aside from land distribution, DAR also provides support services to local farmers as well as agrarian legal services for free.

In line with the celebration, DAR-North Negros held a motorcade yesterday with some Agrarian Reform officials and beneficiaries.

Leonidas also assured that more Certificates of Land Ownership will be distributed this year and more programs to develop their capacities as farmers will also be organized.

DAR-NIR is now implementing Sugarcane Block Farming to help farmers increase production through farm consolidations of Agrarian Reform Organizations in the region.

“It will be hard for the farmers to mill their crops if they go to sugar centrals individually,” he said, adding “If they go in groups, the milling companies could cater to them better.”

Leonidas addedthat SBF, will help them increase their profit and provide more for their families. *MLG
