126 farmer groups in CL receive tractor, farm implements from DAR

piaMABALACAT CITY, July 16 (PIA) -- A total of 126 farmers organizations in Central Luzon recently benefitted from the P36-million worth of farm equipment and implements given by the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR).

Among those given under the agency’s Agrarian Reform Communities Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCCESS) include 117 hand tractors, 21 power tiller cultivators, 18 palay reapers, 7 palay threshers, 7 cornhusk shellers, and 3 heavy tractors.

DAR Regional Director Arnel Dizon said the aid primarily aims to boost mechanized farming not only in the region, but also in the entire country, in order to keep pace with Asian counterparts.

“The government is giving away free farm implements in grants to show its seriousness to help farmer-beneficiaries enhance their dignity and improve the quality of their lives through greater productivity of the farmlands awarded to them under the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program,” Dizon added.

Meanwhile, DAR-Central Luzon ARCCESS coordinator Joselito Aguinaldo explained that each qualified organization receives farm implements depending on their actual needs and based on the assessment and evaluation of state colleges and universities in their respective localities.

Speaking in behalf of the recipients, Esperanza-Manggitahan Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Cooperative of Aurora President Wilfredo Biado expressed his heartfelt gratitude to the Aquino administration for the equipment received, as it would help make farming less burdensome physically and financially for them.

“Now, we are seeing a great future ahead of us as we do not have to rent the services of a heavy tractor from a private individual or group for farm preparation at P2,000 per hectare. Our proceeds will from farming will now redound for the benefit of our cooperative members through dividends based on their share capitals,” Biado said.

ARCCESS hopes to address the lack of capital, excessive physical activity and lack of financial rewards among the agriculture sector by providing farmers the kinds of support services that they badly needed to make the lands awarded to them more productive and the farming profession more rewarding financially.
