Over 173K hectares distributed to CARP beneficiaries in Sultan Kudarat

piaKORONADAL CITY, South Cotabato Jan 22 (PIA) – Some 173,212.96 hectares have been distributed to about 69,722 farmer-beneficiaries in Sultan Kudarat since the start of the agrarian reform program in 1988, a high ranking official of the province’s Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR)  confirmed Monday.


Rodolfo Alburo, provincial agrarian reform program officer II (PARPO II), said that DAR has already accomplished 94 percent of its total target with regard to land acquisition and distribution in Sultan Kudarat.

“We have a target of 184,995.9101 hectares which we need to accomplish by end of 2016. With the current trend, we are close to clearing this target,” he said.

Alburo added that their office continue to deliver services and perform its functions amid news that agrarian program in the Philippines will end by 2016. 

“There is no letting up with the performance of our mandate and in achieving our targets as an agency. DAR even intensified the giving of support services to the farmer-beneficiaries to improve productivity and effect a better change in the quality of life of the farmers,” he said.

Out of the 11 towns and 2 cities including Cotabato City, Columbio town has the highest number of lands distributed to the farmers with 50,207.9526 hectares, followed by Palimbang with 40,944.5138 hectares, then by Senator Ninoy Aquino with 26,919.9755 hectares.

“Based on records, Columbio has around 15,738 farmer-beneficiaries who divided the land given to them. Palimbang has 15,361 and Senator NInoy Aquino has 9,007 farmer-beneficiaries,” said Alburo.

He explained that these towns are among the resettlement areas declared by the government under the Kilusang Kabuhayan at Kaunlaran Land Resource Management program during the time of Pres. Ferdinand Marcos.

Last month, DAR distributed certificates of land titles covering some 3,381.60 hectares in Batang Bagras, Palimbang, hoping it would also boost the economic lives of the new landowners. (ACAgad-PIA 12/JJBDael-DAR-SK)
