DAR distributes land in Argao, Cebu

news reg 1 pix 1 sept. 28 2017The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) recently distributed a total of 4.2955 hectares of untitled private agricultural lands to 30 farmers of Argao, Cebu.

The distributed lands located in barangay Cansuje, Mandilikit, Tulang, Lapay, Balisong, Anajao, Lengigon, and Mompeller, all in the municipality of Argao were issued with certificates of land ownership Award (CLOA). 

Municipal Agrarian Reform Program Officer (MARPO) Liza Toroy said the land titles are just the first step towards more support from the governments because aside from providing lands to the agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) the DAR provides support services projects to the farmers and the communities.

“Support services include training programs, construction and rehabilitations of Infrastructure Facilities,  access to basic social services, and many more to ensure holistic support for the farmers,” Toroy said.

MARPO Toroy, Chief Agrarian Reform Program Officer Lilian Guanzon, Argao Mayor Dr. Stanley Caminero, and other public officials facilitated the formal awarding of  the CLOAs to the ARBs held at Barangay Butong Training Center, Argao, Cebu.

Mayor Caminero encouraged the farmers to work harder as he is very much willing to extend more support to hasten  socio-economic development in the town of Argao which is now classified as first class municipality.

On the other hand, the representatives from the DAR Cebu Legal Division gave inputs on farmers rights and obligations.  

They were further encouraged to actively participate in their farmers organization as the support services from the government are channelled through their organization.
