Agrarian reform gives Php3.7 M worth of farm equipment to Ilocos Norte farmers

piaSAN NICOLAS, Ilocos Norte, August 22, (PIA) - - Twenty Agrarian Reform Beneficiary Organizations (ARBOs) in Ilocos Norte received several farm equipment from the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) in a simple rite at the Catuguing Multi-Purpose Cooperative Hall in Barangay San Guillermo, San Nicolas town.


Engineer Vic Ines, the acting Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer of Ilocos Norte, told Thursday that the giving of farm equipment is a project of their agency under the Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCESS) program.

The DAR started the ARCESS program in 2012 aiming to increase crop production through distribution of a complementary common service facility to the agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs).

The agency spent Php3.7 million funds for the latest ARCESS farm facility for Ilocos Norte to include six units of thresher, two units of reaper and 13 units of tractor with trailer.

“This is now the second and third batches of common service facility given to the ARBs in the province,” he said.

San Nicolas Mayor Melanie Grace P. Valdez and lawyer Windell D. Chua, the provincial administrator, assisted in the distribution of the farm facilities with the presence of the ranking provincial DAR officials.

Carmelita Agluba, chairperson of the Bugnay Development Cooperative of Barangay San Agustin in San Nicolas town, expressed her gratitude to the DAR for the farm equipment her group received, saying this would greatly help enhance their farm production activity.

Meanwhile, the first batch of common service facility for Ilocos Norte was distributed in 2013 to the agrarian farmers’ groups from at least four towns.

For a farmers’ organization to qualify and avail of  the ARCESS program, majority of its member must be Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries.  (VHS/FGL, PIA- 1 Ilocos Norte)
