Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer Luisito A. Jacinto said the project was jointly implemented by DAR and the Municipality of San Jose under the Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Project (ARISP) III.

Barangay Captain Renato R. Oquindo said that tractors used to be the only vehicles farmers were relying on in transporting their produce and hauling costs was usually too high.

“With the projects, we can now easily bring our agricultural products to market with a shorter travel time and lesser hauling cost” he said.
