DAR Turns Over Farm Machineries to Ivatans

The Ivatan (Batanes natives) farmers can now opt to operate through mechanized farming or increase profit through the lease of the common service facilities (CSFs) recently awarded to them by the Department of Agrarian Reform in Basco, Batanes.
 
These farm machineries under the ARCCESS (Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services) project will increase farm productivity of the ARC of San Joacquin and San Antonio and create collectively-managed enterprise for potential profits.
DAR turned over a power cultivator and irrigation pump set after distributing CLOAs to the farmer beneficiaries of the ARC. Earlier, other FBs in the municipalities of Sabtang and Basco also received their Certificates of Land Ownership Award.
 
DAR has delivered a total of 57 common service facilities this to different ARCs in the region. Other farm machineries include hand tractors, threshers, reapers, flatbed dryers etc.
              
DAR Regional Director Marjorie P. Ayson says DAR undertakes review of the development plans of the ARCs at length under the ARCCESS project for its plan to cluster ARCs so they can operate their enterprise at a bigger scale.
               
There are currently two ARCCESS areas in Batanes: one in Itbayat which focuses on goat production and another in Basco which concentrates on vegetable production.
 
While ARCCESS project gains grounds in Batanes, other support services projects of the Department such as micro-finance assistance and skills trainings continue to be in full swing.            
 
 
The turnover was formalized by the signing of trust agreement between the agency and the two Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Organizations (ARBOs).
               
DARAB Assistant Secretary Jim Coleto explains ARCCESS is an outgrowth of a paradigm shift that overtook the Department in its support services. “This time, the administration wanted to deliver services of most pressing importance which will directly impact the farmer beneficiaries.” The ARCCES project will mostly help solve the problem in food security in the country- a phenomenon which according to him is felt across other countries.
