DAR gives farm tractors to 10 farmers’ cooperatives

WEB 20150901R04B ORMIN001CALAPAN CITY—The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) recently turned over 13 farm tractors to 10 farmers’ cooperatives in Oriental Mindoro to increase the production of agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) here.
Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer Joselito Nathaniel Diaz, said the tractors are intended for organic rice farming of the 10 cooperatives. “With these tractors, farmers can now till their farms faster and more efficiently,” he said.
Diaz said the 35-horse powered tractors came with accompanying rotary tillers, trailers, disc plows and trailing harrows. “These [tractors] will service about 1,144 ARBs. Non-ARBs who are members of the 10 cooperatives can also use these tractors,” Diaz added.
Prior to the turn over, the DAR conducted an orientation for farmer-members of the 10 cooperatives for the proper use of the tractors. Tractor experts from Kubota oriented the farmers on proper operation, mounting of accessories, safety, care and maintenance of the tractors.

Farm machines are being provided to farm cooperatives under the DAR’s Agrarian Reform Communities Connectivity Economic Support Services (ARCCESS).
Diaz said through ARCCESS, the DAR would introduce new farm technologies to ARBs to develop their farm cooperatives and ultimately increase their farm yield.
“The ARCCESS project aims to strengthen farmer cooperatives whose members are mostly ARBs, by moulding them to become support hubs. We are hopeful that ARCCESS will contribute to increasing farmers’ income,” said Diaz.
