Coco farmers to get more support from DAR, PCA

piaCAGAYAN DE ORO CITY, October 28 (PIA) – Potential coconut based agrarian reform communities (ARCs) will soon benefit from the Kaanib Enterprise Development Project (KEDP), an integrated resource-service convergence approach which seeks on increasing farm productivity and income of small coconut farming communities.

The Department of Agrarian Reform in Region 10 (DAR-10) and the Philippine Coconut Authority (PCA) initiated a joint consultative meeting recently with the coconut-based agrarian reform beneficiary organizations (ARBOs) to identify and prioritize potential areas for coconut plantation as well as other existing plantations to develop within its ARCs.

Similarly, the Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCCESS) will also provide strategic and sustainable support services to the beneficiaries.

“We have a lot of potential in our existing agrarian reform communities (ARCs) for coconut plantations. We just need to assist and provide them with the needed materials,” said DAR-10 Regional Director Engr. Felix B. Aguhob.

PCA Regional Manager Luis G. Cruz, meanwhile, stressed that proper organization could make the crop competitive in global markets.

“The coconut commodity is one of the most important crops that will create a strong institution. We have to shift and strengthen our cooperatives, and see to it that they can create their own company by bridging together, therefore becoming globally competitive.” Cruz added. (FAR, DAR 10/PIA)
