Rodolfo Alburo, Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II, said the water system amounting to P5.86 million and the post-harvest facilities, which include 450 square meter solar dryer and 36 square meter warehouse, with a total cost of P2.05 million, will improve the agricultural activities and living conditions of the farmers in the countryside.

The infrastructure projects are implemented under the Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Project III funded by the Japan Banking International Cooperation, Alburo said.

He said the Sitio Lagon Farmers Multi- Purpose Cooperative vowed to take care of the projects because its beneficiaries are majority of their members.

President Quirino Mayor Azel Mangundadatu, on the other hand, thanked the government for its support to the farmers and assured the DAR that the local government of President Quirino will help keep the projects in its optimum condition.

DAR backs North Cotabato reforestation project

inquirer netMANILA, Philippines—The government’s national greening program has reached North Cotabato, with agrarian reform and local officials leading the planting of mahogany seedlings in six villages in the province, officials said Wednesday.
 
The Department of Agrarian Reform collaborated with local leaders recently in the planting of some 1,200 mahogany seedlings in the agrarian reform communities (ARCs) of Tumbras, Tugal, Nabalawag, Kapinpilan and Sambulawan in Midsayap, and Rajah Buayan in M’lang.
 
The activity is in support of the government’s National Greening Program, whose goal is to plant some 1.5-billion trees on 1.5-million hectares of land nationwide in the name of climate change mitigation and adaptation, and poverty reduction.
 
“We are hopeful that this program will also strengthen the cooperation and camaraderie of Muslim and Christian ARBs (agrarian reform beneficiaries) to attain peace and development in their respective communities,” provincial agrarian reform program officer Marion Abella said.
 
Abella added the DAR encourages other ARBs to sustain the program because in the coming years “the trees will grow to boost the natural resources in their areas.”
 
ARBs who participated in the tree-growing program were given the privilege to name a tree after themselves, the DAR said.
 
Municipal agrarian reform program officer Felerma Gimenez said this gave the agrarian beneficiaries “a sense of pride and responsibility” in the trees they planted.
 
“We are hoping that the collective efforts of ARBs planting tree will also be radiated to other ARCs in the province in the next months to come,” Gimenez said.
 
The Department of Agriculture and the Department of Environment and Natural Resources also provided support in the implementation of this program.
