Northern Negros Arbos to get P4.7M worth of farm facilities

sunstarFour agrarian reform beneficiaries organizations (Arbos) in northern Negros Occidental are recipients of common service facilities (CSF) worth P4.7 million from the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) through its Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services (Arccess) Project.


The agency will distribute the said farm facilities at DAR Negros Occidental North grounds in San Sebastian Street, Dawis, Bacolod City on December 16.

The recipients are Codcod Agrarian Reform Community Cooperative in Sagay City; Mulawin-Lanatan Farmer Multi-Purpose Cooperative (MPC) in Sagay City; Kapitan Ramon Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries MPC in Silay City, and Mabinay Agrarian Reform Cooperative in Cadiz City.

The farm facilities include two units of farm tractors worth P2.281 million; four units of hand tractors worth P726, 544; four units of threshers amounting to P680,193; and four units of shredders worth P1.073 million.

Mila Flores, provincial agrarian reform program officer I of DAR Negros Occidental –North, said this is the last batch of CSFs given by DAR Central Office for Arbos in northern Negros this year.

Flores said the Arccess Project is a support service delivery mechanism of DAR created to contribute to the increase of farm productivity, improve household income, and provide sustainable livelihood to farmer-beneficiaries.

Aside from increasing farm production, the project is a strategic intervention to retain the awarded lands of agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) through helping them in easing farming activities, lessen expenses, and providing engagement in agri-based and related enterprises, she added.
