Sultan Kudarat hits 94% of DAR’s land redistribution target

businessworldThe Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) has turned over some 173,000 hectares in Sultan Kudarat, hitting 94% of the distribution target of 185,000 hectares in the province.

 “There is no letting up in pursuing our mandate of distributing farmland and providing support services to the farmer-beneficiaries to improve the quality of life of the farmers,” Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II Rodolfo Alburo said in a statement released yesterday.

Through the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform, landless farmers and farm workers are granted ownership to agricultural lands. The program is now in the CARP Extension with Reforms stage, signed into law in 2009, giving the government five more years to distribute land.

Among the 11 towns and two cities including Cotabato City, Columbio town is the top performer having distributed 50,207.95 hectares to 15,738 farmer-beneficiaries.

The town of Palimbang follows with 40,944.51 hectares distributed to 15,361 farmer- beneficiaries. Some 9,007 farmer-beneficiaries in Senator Ninoy Aquino were given 26,919.98 hectares.

Mr. Alburo added that these towns are among those reclassified as resettlement areas under the Kilusang Kabuhayan at Kaunlaran Land Resource Management.

Last month, DAR distributed certificates of land titles covering 3,381.60 hectares in Batang Bagras, a special Agrarian Reform Community (ARC) in Palimbang town.

A barangay or cluster of barangays declared as an ARC means farmers and farmworkers in the ARC are potential beneficiaries from the full implementation of agrarian reform.
