Farmers learn all about contracts

MlaStandardNewDAVAO—More than 50 farmers from 24 Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries Organizations (ARBOs) in Davao City joined a two-day program beneficiaries development (PBD) Lawyering Activity on contract review and negotiation at the Eagle Ridge Resort here.

Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II Ernesto B. Tan said the PBD activity is an intervention of the Department of Agrarian Reform Legal Team and the Program Beneficiaries Development Division. 

It aims to provide the Agrarian Reform Beneficiaries (ARBs) and ARBOs the basic skills on agribusiness ventures agreements and contracts with their investor-partners to give them a higher income and opportunities to increase their standard of living. 

Tan said the training would benefit those who have existing contracts and provide information to the ARBs and ARBOs who are planning to venture into agreements and contracts with investors. 

Atty. Glenn Pobre of the DAR Legal Division, one of the resource speakers, explained the obligation and contracts based on the Civil Code of the Philippines, specifically the three stages of entering into contracts: preparation, perfection and consummation of a contract, principles of a contract, the cause of the contract and the requisites of a good contract.

Pobre also discussed certain topics on the art on negotiation, for first timers in contract negotiations and renegotiation tips for those have already existing contracts.  He cautioned the ARBOs that engaging in commercial agreements “signifies adherence to its terms and conditions.”

Ruel Larosa, Chief Agrarian Reform program officer for PBD, challenged the participants to give ample time understanding the stipulations of their contracts before signing.

“It is expected that after the training, the ARBOs are more careful to the   provisions in the contract,” Larosa added.
