DAR urges farmers to organize coop

balita-phZAMBOANGA CITY, Nov. 7 — The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) has advised farmers to organize themselves into a cooperative to have an easy access to the agency's support services.

DAR Regional Director Julita Ragandang issued the advise after the department, 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 pointed out that the assessment is just an initial step towards the realization of the implementation of agri-enterprise development of the project.

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

The activity is 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.

The ARCs where 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 are the farm-to-market roads, farm inputs, modern farming technologies and post harvest facilities. (PNA)
