DAR to distribute 5,000-hectare of land until 2016

sunstarlogoA TOP official of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) is targeting to complete the agency's land distribution program in Zamboanga Peninsula before the end of President Benigno Aquino III's term.

DAR Regional Director Felix Aguhob said 5,000 hectares of land are still to be distributed to agrarian reform beneficiaries in the region.

These hectares of land are located in the following provinces: 2,600 hectares in Zamboanga del Norte; 1,800 hectares, Zamboanga del Sur; and 600 hectares, Zamboanga Sibugay.

Aguhob said the 5,000 hectares are targeted to be distributed to 2,500 farmer-beneficiaries.

He said they are targeting to distribute around 44 percent or a little over 2,000 of the 5,000 hectares of land to the identified farmer beneficiaries by the end of this year.

He also said that they have requested Congress, through DAR's central office, to enact a law for the extension of notice of coverage since 1,000 of the 5,000 hectares do not have coverage notice.

The notice of coverage is needed to be able to distribute the lands to the farmer-beneficiaries, he added. (Bong Garcia)
