DAR aid to Sultan Kudarat farmers at nearly P13M

businessworldFarm machinery worth P12.797 million was turned over to seven agrarian reform beneficiary oganizations (ARBOs) in Sultan Kudarat since the start of 2015, the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) said.

 In a statement yesterday, provincial agrarian reform program officer II Rodolfo T. Alburo said the continuing distribution of farm machinery is part of the Agrarian Reform Community Connectivity and Economic Support Services (ARCCESS) program.

ARCCESS was established to help beneficiaries retain their land by expanding their production and engagement in agricultural enterprise.

The interventions provide common service facilities (CSFs), agri-technology and agri-extension services, business development services, credit facilitation, and land tenure improvement.

“This year, it is possible that [the] same ARBOs will again receive another set of CSFs,” said Mr. Alburo, adding that ARCCESS, by improving mechanization of the farm industry, will increase farmer incomes by “increasing productivity and lowering costs.”

Meanwhile, an ARCCESS official, Ildefonso A. Buenacosa, Jr., said ARBOs are selected based on the “maturity level of the organization.”

“Once beneficiary organizations are selected, respective ARBO leaders will then choose the type of CSFs they would want to receive according to their needs,” he noted.

Mr. Buenacosa added that workshops and orientations are conducted before turning over CSFs. This is to ensure that recipient organizations are prepared to handle the project and have understood the program’s terms and conditions.

On Jan. 14, three dump trucks were delivered to the DAR provincial office which will be turned over to the beneficiary ARBOs soon, he said.
