piaNEGROS OCCIDENTAL, September 30 (PIA6) - - Eight Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Organizations (ARBOs) get one unit each of brand new farm tractors amounting to a total of P41-million from the Department of Agrarian Reform.

The tractors are complete with farm implements and accessories like backhoe, front-end loader, 20 disc trailing arrow, 5-tonner dumping trailer and four-disc plough which will benefit directly some 314 ARBs serving at least 500 hectares in northern Negros.

These are given to ARBOs under the ARCESS program or Agrarian Reform Cooperative Connectivity Economic Support Services which include the areas of Calatrava, Escalante, Cadiz, Silay, and Talisay.

Undersecretary for Support Services Rosalina Bistoyong told the beneficiaries to take care of the tractors as she had shed tears to be able get the tractors pass the standards and finally get the budget approved.
