The equipment comprised of three rice threshers for Hagonoy and New Murcia, Davao del Sur; 11 floating tillers for the beneficiaries of Magsaysay and Matanao, Davao del Sur; two rice threshers respectively for Pagsabangan, Tagum City and New Corella, Davao del Norte; four rice threshers for Banaybanay, Boston and Cateel, respectively; one corn sheller for Cateel and floating threshers for Cateel, Boston and Banay-banay, respectively.

Arccess stands for Agrarian Reform Connectivity and Economic Support Services.

Maruhom said the Aquino administration intends to include the program under Daang Matuwid through its rural poverty reduction program particularly in the Agrarian Reform areas.

He explained that the program involves two components which include the involvement of professional service providers who are experts in agriculture and business development services and the common service facilities composed of farm equipment which is based on the demand of the communities as agricultural services in support to the agrarian reform beneficiaries.

He said the equipment can assist in the harvest of more or less two hundred hectares of rice farms.

Camacho said their organization composed of 161 beneficiaries also acquired lots from coconut and banana plantations in the area.  (PIA 11-Joey Sem G. Dalumpines)
