Sarangani farmers given land

business mirrorThe Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) has installed 142 agrarian-reform beneficiaries (ARBs) at a 95-hectare banana plantation in Maribulan, Alabel in Sarangani province.

The plantation is previously owned by the Sarangani Agricultural Co. Inc. (Saci), which was placed under coverage of the Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program (CARP).  As its new owners, and with their installation, the farmers can now start to cultivate the land as its owners.

As ARBs, the farmers will be provided basic rural infrastructures to enhance farm productivity, and get livelihood skills/training programs to help them put up their own business enterprises, Municipal Agrarian Reform Officer Salvador D. Solaña Jr. said.

“To guarantee the farm’s sustainability is our goal, and the DAR, in collaboration with other Comprehensive Agrarian Reform Program Extension with Reforms [CARPer] implementing agencies, will see to it that your basic needs are taken care of,” Solaña said.

He also reminded ARBs of their obligations to the government—payment of their yearly land amortization through the Land Bank of the Philippines.

Saci representative Engr. Jonathan Germino expressed the company’s continued support to CARP even as he urged the new landowners to take care of the banana plantation and make it more productive.

The company was established in 1962 and pioneered the large-scale propagation of America Purebred Brahmans, a superior breed of cattle acclimatized to extreme tropical conditions and highly resistant to disease.

Combined with several affiliates, Saci manages approximately 10,000 hectares devoted to cattle ranching. Saci devotes over 300 hectares to the raising of sweet pomelos for the local market and Cavendish bananas for export.
