Ilocos farmers to get P19.3 million worth of farm machines next month–DAR

business mirrorFarmers from the Ilocos region will soon have access to various farm machines.

The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) is set to turn over P19.3 million worth of farm machines to 42 farmers’ organizations in the region starting next month.

DAR Regional Director Homer P. Tobias said the farm machines, composed of 12 corn shellers, 53 hand tractors, five reapers and 42 threshers, are scheduled for distribution next month.

The 42 farmers’ organizations were picked as recipients of the farm machineries after meeting all the required specifications.

Tobias said the DAR had also conducted trainings on the proper use of the machines in La Union, Pangasinan, Ilocos Sur and Ilocos Norte.

According to Tobias, more than 27,000 farmer-beneficiaries of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) are set to benefit from the project. “The use of these farm machines will also be extended to non-agrarian reform beneficiaries of the community,” Tobias added.

The farm equipment are being provided to farmer-beneficiaries under the DAR’s Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCCESS) being implemented by the DAR.
