37 farmers attend DAR school

TheStandardKORONADAL CITY—The Department of Agrarian Reform announced that 37 farmers of Barangay Luhib Highland Agricultural Credit Cooperative (HACC) completed the 16-week Farm Business School (FBS) program to improve their farm production, profit and quality of life in Lake Sebu, South Cotabato. Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II H. Roldan Ali said the 37 farmers were the second batch of farmer-entrepreneurs in the FBS program that trained them to become entrepreneurs.

Ali said knowledge of market surveying, accounting, farm budget planning, bench marking and market matching were shared with the participants in the 25-session program.

“Now that you have the necessary knowledge to become entrepreneurs, be certain that you can establish the best prices for your produce to help improve your income and production,” Ali said.

Merlinda Go, the best participant in the FBS program, thanked the DAR for helping them become farmtrepreneurs.

Support Services Division Chief Lorna Garde commended the graduates for inspiring  other agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs).

The Farm Business School was first launched by the DAR in August 2015 in cooperation with the Department of Agriculture, local government units and the municipality of Tampakan, South Cotabato where 27 ARBs from the Pobusilla Agrarian Reform Community became farmer-entrepreneurs.
