DAR-XI distributes P22M-worth of farm equipment to farmer-organizations

piaDAVAO CITY, Dec. 15 (PIA) – The Department of Agrarian Reform Region XI has turned over on Monday P22-million worth of farm machineries and equipment 29 agrarian reform beneficiaries’ organizations (ARBOs) from across the region.


Regional Director John M. Maruhom said the ARBOs are from Davao City, and from the provinces of Davao del Sur, Davao del Norte, Compostela Valley Province and Davao Oriental.

The farm machineries and equipment were procured under the Agrarian Reform Communities Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCCESS) project thru the Department Of Budget and Management-Procurement Service (PS-DBM).

The equipment include: 22 light-duty shredders, two cultivators/power tillers and eight units four-wheel drive power tractors (one unit 120 HP, two units 90 HP and five units 35 HP).

Thorough inspection and test runs were conducted by government inspectors upon the delivery of these farm machineries and equipment to ensure that they conform to specifications and in good working condition.

The suppliers were likewise required to conduct orientation and training on proper operation and maintenance of this equipment for the recipient ARBOs.

The ARBOs’ actual need of these farm machineries and equipment were pre-determined and validated by a third-party state university which was commissioned for the purpose.

The ARCCESS project is DAR’s strategic intervention to retain the awarded lands of agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) through increased production and engagement in agri-based and related enterprises.

It 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 improving resiliency of ARB households.

It has five major components, namely: 1) provision of common service facilities (CSFs) for production and processing, 2) agri-technology and agri-extension services, 3) business development services, 4) credit facilitation, and 5) land tenure improvement.

The formal turnover ceremony of the machineries and equipment was held on December 14, 2015 at the DAR Regional Office XI Compound in Catalunan Pequeño, Davao City, and was attended by DAR XI officials and officers of the ARBO recipients. (DAR-XI/Divino C. Dalanon)
