The DARAB has a total caseload of 1,367 for mediation, and resolved a total of 1,757 cases, which exceeded a total of 390 cases.

The cases handled by DAR adjudicators, included farmer’s ejectment from the land, pre-emption and redemption cases, fixing and collection of lease rentals, farmer’s reinstatement to or recovery of possession of the land, and cancellation of the emancipation patents under Presidential Decree 27 and certificate of land ownership awards under the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP), among others.
