DAR pushes mechanized agricultural production

gitnang luzonDINALUPIHAN, Bataan –The Department of Agriculture (DAR) is pushing for a complete mechanized agricultural production, according to Provincial Agrarian Reform Officer Engr. Eric San Luis.



He pointed out that under the Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCCESS) program of the agency, complete sets of agricultural production equipment are provided for free to agrarian reform communities (ARCs).

He explained that the equipments are provided particularly to agrarian reform (AR) organizations, which in turn manages them to service ARCs. The provincial agrarian reform officer said set agricultural production equipment given to agrarian reform organizations include a 4-wheel tractor, combined harvester and thresher, power tiller, and planter. The amount of a set of equipment runs to millions of pesos.

San Luis stressed that DAR does not stop in providing agricultural equipment, but likewise extend trainings to members of AR organizations. He added that they are even hiring experts to train and educate AR organizations.

He reported that two of the 15 ARCs in the province had already benefited from the program.
Organizations Dinalupihan Multi-Purpose Cooperative and Bicol-Binukawan Cooperative were already given each a set of equipment currently servicing Dinalupihan and Bagac ARCs, respectively.

He said other agrarian reform organizations in the province will also get a set of agricultural equipment from DAR soon. Agrarian reform organizations charge reasonable fees for the equipment to availing farmers. “Mechanized farming is more productive and efficient”, pointed out San Luis.• Butch Gunio
