DAR-9 targets to complete land distribution program in June 2016

zamboanga today onlineThe Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) is targeting to complete its land distribution program here in Region 9 before President Benigno Aquino III steps down from office in June 2016.

Eng’r. Felix Aguhob, DAR regional director, told the Philippines News Agency that there are still 5,000 hectares of land to be distributed to agrarian reform beneficiaries here in the region.

Aguhob said the 5,000 hectares are located in the following provinces: 2,600 hectares, Zamboanga del Norte; 1,800 hectares, Zamboanga del Sur; and, 600 hectares, Zamboanga Sibugay.

Aguhob said the 5,000 hectares of land 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.

Meanwhile, he said they have requested Congress through DAR 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.

He said a notice of coverage is needed to be able to distribute the lands to the farmer-beneficiaries.
He said DAR has around 128,000 farmer-beneficiaries here in Region 9. The beneficiaries are members of the different Agrarian Reform Communities. (R.G. GO)
