DAR receives P17.4 M worth of tractors, threshers for Arbos

sunstarlogoTHE Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) Negros Occidental-North received Friday farm equipment worth P17.4 million for distribution to qualified Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Organizations (Arbos) this month.

These include three units of Massey Ferguson 120 horsepower farm tractors worth P5.5 million each with implements like harrow, disc plow, and cane loader, and five threshers worth P900,000 as common service facilities (CSFs) under the Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services program.

Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer I Mila Flores said the facilities were requested by DAR Negros Occidental-North and they have already identified the recipient Arbos.

“But we are still conducting validation on the requirements and qualifications set by DAR which include cultivating the land by themselves,” Flores said.

She added that the certificate of land ownership award (Cloa) should be named to the cooperative, and for the individual Cloa holders, the land should still be collectively managed.

The DAR official said that beneficiaries should observe the trust agreement.

Arbos have to manage and safe keep the facilities for their organization use and development but these can be subjected to revocation when agreement provisions are violated, Flores warned.

“We really encourage farmer organizations to make use of the facilities for their production growth and profitability,” she said.

Moreover, the DAR Negros Occidental-North will also receive an additional four units of 120 horsepower farm tractors this year.

Recently, the local DAR office also got six sets of 90 horsepower John Deere farm tractors worth P2.9 million each, now temporarily parked at the Sugar Regulatory Administration—Bacolod grounds.
