DAR assists Davao farmers

sunstarlogoTHE regional office of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) in Davao had acquired 57 farming machineries that will assist farmers in the region to improve competitiveness and productivity.


The machineries, funded through the Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services (Arccess) project of DAR Davao, will be turned over to various farmers' groups in the region.

For a start, 24 machineries were distributed to the farmers at the DAR Regional Office in Catalunan Pequeño in Davao City on Friday.

The project is centered on increasing production and engagement in agri-based and related enterprises. It has five major components, including provision of common service facilities (CSFs) for production and processing, agri-technology and agri-extension services, business development services, credit facilitation, and land tenure improvement.

Arccess also aims to strengthen the ARB organizations by building them as hubs of support services in the community which are expected to contribute to increasing ARB household incomes and improve resiliency of ARB households.

Sixteen Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Organization (Arbo) from Davao del Sur, Davao del Norte, and Davao Oriental received the 14 floating tillers, nine rice treshers, and one corn sheller. The total cost of the units that were given amounted to P2,767,404.

"This is the first help that came from DAR since the Typhoon Pablo in December 2012. We realy made efforts to come here in Davao so they would see how happy they made us," said Edwardo Batulan, president of Uswag Carmen Irrigators Association (Ucia).

He said the new rice thresher that was given to them will be shared with the 30 members of UCIA, covering 28 hectares of rice fields.

"This is in line with the overall goal of DAR to attain rural poverty reduction," DAR Davao director John M. Maruhom said.

The other 33 equipment will be given to another set of Arbo as they (DAR) are still processing the insurance for the equipment with the Philippine Crop Insurance Corporation which will run for about three months.
