“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.
