Soria said the distribution of lands to the identified ARBs will continue throughout the year to meet DAR's targeted land distribution of 2,556 hectares this year.

Soria said DAR has a total of 29,723 ARBs comprising of 17,960 Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries' Organizations (ARBOs) in 280 Agrarian Reform Communities (ARCs) throughout the province.

Meanwhile, Soria said they are conducting this month a subdivision survey in Mahayag, Zamboanga del Sur covering a land area of 166 hectares.

He said the land will be distributed to 145 ARBs once the survey will be completed and with the approval from DAR regional office.
