“I am counting on their signed commitment that they would fulfill them to better serve our farmers and improve their economic lives,” said Mariano.

The performance contract was the final output of the just concluded “Harmonization and Unification for a Common Strategic Direction,” which was conducted to respond to changes in the DAR’s direction in the implementation of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP) and the introduction of the genuine agrarian reform program (GAR).
