Britanico said DAR would also implement a coconut farming and processing system in Guinobatan.

“Preparations for these projects are being undertaken by DAR-Albay following the signing of a memorandum of agreement with municipal mayors last Sept. 10,” he said, adding the projects will benefit 10,400 farmers, 527 of them are agrarian reform beneficiaries.

The GPB was adopted to identify programs and projects that would help the country’s poorest cities and municipalities.
