DAR enhances 30 Sorsogon ARBs’ farm management skills

news reg 1 pix 1 feb. 6 2018THIRTY agrarian reform beneficiaries from Castilla town in Sorsogon province recently graduated from the Farm Business School (FBS), a farm productivity program of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) aimed at improving the quality and volume of harvests.

Chief Agrarian Reform Program Officer for Program Beneficiaries’ Development Liza Repotente said the FBS is a 25-session tutorial lesson about business and market trends in their own local environment through the learning-by-doing approach.

“These farmers are members of the Mayon Farmers Association (MAFA). They learned the latest technical know-how on farming and marketing and we expect them to share this knowledge with their fellow farmers,” Repotente said.

MAFA Chairperson Nonito Mendez said the tutorial lessons were interactive. The farmers learned from each other and the facilitator was very accommodating to their queries.

“Their knowledge on the business side of agriculture is broadened. They can now negotiate better and understand business terms and practices in the markets,” he said.

Mendez added that now that new graduates are well-informed, they are looking forward to having “Bagsakan” (trading) Center, a drop point where farmers can trade on their own harvests with interested clientele.
