DAR 02 vows to funnel more ARBs to Agri-Extension Services

DAR vowsRegional Director Atty. Marjorie P. Ayson urged DAR Region 02’s partner State Universities and Colleges (SUCs) to funnel more Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries (ARBs) into its Agri-Extension Services (AES) under the Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCCESS) project after a careful evaluation on the accomplishment reports of the SUCs on March 26-28, 2014.
She encouraged the SUCs, which serve as the Professional Service Providers (PSP) for the project, to prioritize the ARBs in the trainings scheduled for the remaining months of the implementation. RD Ayson further requested the SUCs to frame a catch-up plan to assure the delivery of the AES to more ARBs in the region.
 
To closely monitor the DAR-ARCCESS accomplishments on the field, DAR 02 undertakes its own assessment activities, not solely relying on the report submitted by the Progress and Process Monitoring team.
Meanwhile, Undersecretary Felix Perry A. Villanueva reminded the SUCs the need to facilitate market-agreements between the ARBs and the traders/buyers.
 
Agri-extension is the application of scientific research and new knowledge to agricultural practices through farmer education and other learning activities to increase the productivity and sustainability of their production systems, and thus improve the quality of the lives and livelihoods of the ARBs.
 
A remarkable offshoot in the ARCCESS implementation was the emergence of several projects outside DAR funneled to the ARB Organizations by the SUCs. For instance, the Quirino State University which serves as the PSP for the provinces of Quirino and Nueva Vizcaya has ushered in an agri-related project to the involved ARBOs with a monetary grant by the Korea International Cooperation Agency (KOICA). DAR vows 2
 
The Cagayan State University has also chosen the ARBOs in the province of Cagayan as recipients for its 5-year Medium Term Development Plan.
Engr. Isidro Ribunal, ARCCESS regional point-person, refers to such developments as potential pillars of sustainability for the ARBOs of which the ARCCESS serves as the catalyst.
 
In an earlier conference, RD Ayson stated that at the end of the day, the goal of the Department is to make its programs and efforts felt in the lives of the ARBs.
