He said  the recipients of the facilities are ARBOs in Canlaon City, Manjuyod, Mabinay, Tanjay City, Bais City, Sta. Catalina, and Bayawan City, and ARBOs in Medellin and Bogo in Cebu City.

Present at  the delivery and initial turnover from the supplier to the DAR were Naranjo, PARPO I Elvira Bation, district officer Fernando Sauro Jr. of  the SRA, and DAR and ARBO representatives.*RG
