sunstarlogoTHE Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) announced that this year's distribution of land to Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries (ARBs) in Zamboanga Peninsula will be higher by 3,385 hectares compared to that distributed in 2014.

DAR-Zamboanga Peninsula Director Julita Ragandang said they have set a target of 5,940 hectares of land to be distributed to ARBs in the region this year.

Ragandang said they distributed last year 2,555 hectares of land to 2,416 ARBs, and so far, they have identified 4,212 ARBs this year.

Ragandang said the largest area of land they will distribute this year is in Zamboanga del Norte, citing 2,741 of the 5,940 hectares will be distributed to the ARBs in the province.
