DAR assists Davao farmers in market chain

sunstarlogoTHE Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) Davao, in partnership with the Catholic Relief Service, will help local farmers to market goods, as part of its poverty reduction program in the region.

DAR regional director John Maruhom said, "the project's goal is to assist agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) and small farmers to access to greater value in the market chain."

For instance, Maruhom said that farmers in Davao del Norte are already selling durian by-products, Davao del Sur will prioritize rice production, while Davao Oriental focusses on coconut and chili production.

This is through the collective production and marketing of their products and strengthening of business support services. Marketing of these goods has been made possible through the Baba's Foundation. The products are sold both in the national and international market.

DAR has allocated P700,000 for this program.
