Ivatan Farmers Receive Farm Machineries

The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) recently turned over 57 modern farm machineries to Ivatan agrarian reform beneficiaries inBasco, Batanes.
 
Ivatan Farmers 1 DAR Regional Director Marjorie Ayson-Alzate said the farm machines would help encourageIvatan farmers of San Joaquin and San Antonio agrarian reform community (ARCs) to work doubly hard and increase their production.
 
“With these mechanized farm implements, farmers can now till their land faster and more efficiently, and ensure greater yield and income,” said Alzate.
 
The provision of farm equipment, which includes hand tractors, threshers, reapers, flatbed dryers and cultivators,is being implemented under the Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCCESS).
 
TheARCCESS is an alternative rural development approach where support services provided by DAR are delivered to selected agrarian reform beneficiaries organizations.
 
“There is no need for them to rent farm equipment as these are now available for a token fee for the maintenance of these machines,” said Alzate.
 
 
Alzate explained that the machines were given as “equipment grant,” which will be operated by the farm organization as business assets where user fees would be collected and utilized for the operation and maintenance of the farm equipment.
 
There are currently two ARCCESS areas in Batanes: one in Itbayat which focuses on goat production and another in Basco which engages on vegetable production.
