THE Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) announced on Wednesday a total of 61 agrarian beneficiaries of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) in the towns of Mabinay and Sibulan, Negros Oriental, have been installed recently.


In a statement on Wednesday, the DAR said that the land, formerly owned by Genaro Goni, is a 57-hectare property situated in Barangay Luyang in the municipality of Mabinay. A total of 57 farmers were installed in the said barangay.

Meanwhile, four other beneficiaries were installed at a 9.5-hectare land formerly owned by Cabrera Enterprise Properties in Barangay San Antonio in the town of Sibulan, the DAR said.

Municipal Agrarian Reform Program Officers Benjamin Empig and Eliseo Salvo of Mabinay and Sibulan, respectively, led the simple turn-over of the farm lots to the new owners, according to the DAR.

Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II Louie Naranjo and Chief of LTI Division Manuel Galon Jr. witnessed the turnover, the DAR statement said.

Naranjo was quoted in the statement as saying he briefed the beneficiaries of the “new” rights and obligations as landowner under CARP.

Naranjo was also quoted as saying he urged the farmers to make their CARP-awarded lands productive and pay their amortizations and taxes religiously.
