DAR-XI successfully installs 34 farmers in DavSur town

pia

JOSE ABAD SANTOS, Davao Occidental, May 30 (PIA) – Some 34 agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) were successfully installed on a 95-hectare estate in Barangay Butuan, municipality of Jose Abad Santos, Davao Occidental.



Each of the ARBs received an individual Certificate of Land Ownership Award (CLOA) with areas ranging from half-a-hectare to a maximum of 3.000 hectares. The land was formerly owned by Maria and Alfredo Medel.

The CLOAs were distributed by the Department of Agrarian Reform Region XI represented by Assistant Regional Director for Operations Venchito Mandap and Davao del Sur Provincial Agrarian Reform Officer Atty. Juancho P. Calud.

During the installation and distribution of the titles, the DAR officials took turns in thoroughly discussing the profile of the covered area for ARB installation, emphasizing the intent and the provisions of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP).

As the officials emphasized the obligations of the ARBs, the prohibitions and the necessity of installing the ARBs, they also enjoined the ARBs to make the land productive in order to pay the Land Bank of the Philippines (LBP).

The newly-installed ARBs have organized themselves and named their group as Don Manuel Medel Small Farmers Association in honor of the estate patriarch who submitted the land under CARP’s voluntary offer to sell scheme.

The ARBs were thankful to the former estate patriarch whom the farmers described as a good and kind person.

The officers of the newly-formed ARB organization took oath after the CLOA distribution.

All the ARBs were then instructed to proceed to their respected lots for the physical take-over of the land and the physical assumption and cultivation of their area.

They were oriented to provide landmarks in their areas to avoid encroachments. They were also urged to make the land productive through intercropping banana, cacao, coffee and other high value crops.  

The week-long installation procedure also included the conduct of perimeter/ relocation and subdivision survey that went on smoothly despite an earlier threat from some of the heirs who have opposed to the CARP coverage of their land.

DAR provincial office chief of operations Engr. Leonilo D. Casauran and Municipal Agrarian Reform Program Officer Julio Lupas also headed the installation with the assistance from the Philippine National Police (PNP) and the Philippine Army (PA).

The group travelled 200 kilometers south of Digos City, the capital of Davao del Sur, to implement the subdivision survey, ARB organization, CLOA distribution and ARB installation. (DAR-DavSur/Yadz Geyrozaga)
