Agriculture Insurance for ARBs in Region 2

1

The Department of Agrarian Reform recently awarded agriculture insurance to over 13,000 ARBs in Region II. The insurance aimed to aid the ARB’s for the losses they incurred from severe crop damages left behind by typhoon ‘Labuyo.’

The Certificates of Insurance Coverage were distributed to ARBs in Cagayan, Isabela, Nueva Vizcaya, Quirino and Batanes. 

The 13,000 ARBs or 60% of the 22,000 target for Region II are to be enrolled under the Agricultural Insurance Program with a corresponding fund of  P190 million.

Those covered under the program are  ARBs or members of ARB households duly certified by DAR to be  tilling or managing  their respective farms. The ARBs should also be members of ARBOs or FOs and are cultivating crops or raising livestock.

The insurance comprehensively covers an area of 3 hectares of land per farmer for collective or group farming. For multiple cropping, the program allows 3 crop insurances coverage per farmer. Livestock and swine are also covered by the insurance.

During the awarding, Local Chief Executives received the Certificates alongside their constituents, sealing the partnership with the LGUs. They assured that  they will continue these programs, even after DAR completes providing these services to the farmers.

Undersecretary Jose Grageda who graced the event pointed out  that DAR has never been alone and has always worked with partners in the implementation of its programs. He further  urged the beneficiaries to fulfil their responsibilities by  paying  taxes and maximizing the productivity of their lands.
