DAR, Korean assess agrarian reform communities

sunstarlogoDEPARTMENT of Agrarian Reform (DAR) Regional Director Julita Ragandang has advised the farmers to organize among themselves into a cooperative to have an easy access to the support services from DAR.

Ragandang’s advice came after DAR in partnership with the Korean Rural Community Corporation (KRCC) held an assessment survey on Agrarian Reform Communities in the region.

The ARCP2-KRCC Assessment Survey of Potential Agri-Enterprise Public-Private Partnership (PPP) was held with the Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Organizations (ARBOs) in Zamboanga del Norte Resettlement Agrarian Reform Communities (ARC) Cluster.

Ragandang said the assessment is just an initial step towards the realization of the implementation of agri-enterprise development of the project.

Ragandang said they have already accomplished the land acquisition, distribution and agrarian justice delivery and “is now focusing on the agri-enterprise development component of the project.”

She said the assessment serves as an opportunity for KRCC to see the real condition of the farmers in the ARC cluster for appropriate intervention to enhance their production capability and to develop product competitiveness with the other countries.

Among the ARCs they conducted assessment survey were located in the municipalities of Leon Postigo and Salug, Zamboanga del Norte.

ARCP Consultant Luz Ani pointed out that the forum is just an assessment and aimed to get first hand information from the farmer-beneficiaries on the support they need to make them more productive.

Among the support services needed by the farmers in the ARC cluster include the farm-to-market roads, farm inputs, modern farming technologies and post harvest facilities. – Bong Garcia
