DAR opposes subleasing of agrarian reform lands

panaynewsBACOLOD City – The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) and Sugar Regulatory Administration (SRA) are bent on combating the subleasing activities among agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs).


Through “block farming strategy”, said DAR regional director Stephen Leonidas, the department is confident that subleasing of lands will be minimized if not eradicated.

Subleasing happens primarily because of lack of capital and equipment by individual ARBs, said Leonidas.

“DAR initiates new strategies and partnerships like that with the Social Action Center not just for institutional development but also for spiritual transformation of our beneficiaries,” Leonidas said.

Negros Occidental has the biggest share of block farms in the country with 35 out of 99 nationwide.

DAR-North has 19 block farms while DAR South has 16 block farms involving 12 ARB organizations. Each block farm has an average size of 35 hectares.

Meanwhile, Leonidas disclosed that as of September 2015, DAR North distributed 4,500 hectares out of its 10,000 hectares target for distribution.

“We are looking at 5,500 more to be accomplished the 10,000 target and these are already in the pipeline,” he said.

The claim folders are being reviewed by Land Bank of the Philippines. (PIA-Negros Occidental/PN)
