DAR indemnifies drought-affected farmers in Quirino

piaQUIRINO, July 4 -- The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) recently awarded P238,291.46 worth of indemnity checks to forty three (43) ARBs in the province of Quirino to safeguard their crops from any disasters.

Acting Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II (PARPO II) Engr. Arthur E. Faeldon said the insurance, implemented under the Agrarian Reform Beneficiary-Agrarian Insurance Program (ARB-AIP), was given to farmer-beneficiaries who were affected by drought last cropping season.

“We are happy that you are secured. The additional expense for the insurance of your farms and yourself won’t be too much of a burden if at the end of the day you will benefit from it,” Faeldon said to the farmers.

Faeldon added that although they are insured, they should be very vigilant in protecting their farms because the climate is becoming more unpredictable nowadays.

On the other hand, Diffun Mayor Marlo Guillermo said the farmers are lucky to have this government program as they don’t have to worry about the loss brought by the disasters, particularly the drought.

“Through this insurance, you can plant all day and sleep well during the night,” Guillermo said.

The ARB-AIP subsidized 100% of the ARB’s premium for rice, corn, high value crops and livestock insurance, which has a built-in insurance for accident and death for ARBs and members of their households.

The DAR-AIP was launched in 2013 by the DAR and the Philippine Crop Insurance Corporation (PCIC) to provide ARBs crop insurance protection against crop losses caused by natural disasters, pest infestation and plant diseases. (DAR)
