DAR reorients farmers on agribusiness venture arrangement rules, rights

piaTACURONG  CITY,  Sultan  Kudarat,  June 22 (PIA)  --    Agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) need to be re-equipped with the latest rules and guidelines governing agribusiness venture arrangements (AVA), an official of the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) provincial office  said.

Rodolfo Alburo, provincial agrarian reform program officer II of DAR-Sultan Kudarat said that since both local and national agribusiness industries eye the province as potential expansion area, it is imperative that ARBs have sufficient knowledge on AVAs to avoid being victimized by contracts which are disadvantageous to them.  

Alburo explained that knowing their basic rights as farmers and understanding the guidelines governing AVAs could improve their bargaining skills on their negotiations with investors.

It can be remembered that DAR provincial office conducted a Program Beneficiaries Development (PBD) Lawyering to reorient ARBs on the implementing rules and guidelines on AVA and on strengthening their ability to manage their organizations and mitigate financial risks on their respective business operations.

Some 12 farmer-beneficiaries (FBs) coming from six ARB organizations participated in the PBD Lawyering held in Lebak, Sultan Kudarat for the towns of Kalamansig and Lebak on June 9.

About the same number of FBs also participated in the another lawyering activity conducted earlier in Tacurong City for the towns of Isulan, President Quirino, Bagumbayan, Esperanza and Columbio.

According to Rahyll Saga, Legal Division staff of DAR-SK, most of the issues raised during the open forum focused on clarifications about their rights as farmers and on knowing the possible legal implications of their actions on their dealings with investors.
