Chief Agrarian Reform Program Officer Engr. Nestor I. Villanueva, said that the 259-strong farmers cooperative would benefit from the tractor.

“This brand new 90-horsepowered tractor including the farm implements—trailing harrow, disc plow and trailer, would greatly improve and make farming a lot easier, reduce their expenses and improve farm yield,” said Villanueva.

Cooperative Manager Aurelio D. Solon who formally received the tractor said “this tractor is such a big help. It will speed up our plowing and other preparatory activities before actual planting. This tractor would now be one of our services to our members.”

Farm equipments like tractors, are being provided to agrarian reform beneficiaries under the DAR’s Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCCESS) Project. (Kathleen Sespeñe)
