10 CamSur cooperatives get P6.3-M farm machines, equipment from DAR

NAGA CITY -- To improve the quality of crops, prevent post-harvest losses and increase the production of rice and vegetables in Camarines Sur, the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) has turned over  farm machines and equipment to various agrarian reform beneficiaries organizations (ARBOs) in this province.

DAR Secretary Brother John Castriciones turned over a total of P6.3 million worth of farm machines and equipment to ten (10) ARBOs here.

“We want to uplift their economic lives by increasing their agricultural production and household income. That’s why these farm inputs are being provided to enhance the support systems of our agrarian reform beneficiaries,” Brother John said.

The ARBOs include the Magsaysay Planters Assoc., Sta. Cruz Farmers & Farmworkers Assoc., Balaton Farmers & Fisherfolks Org., Dominanao Silverio Estate Irrigators Assoc., Hibago Farmers Irrigators Assn., Pagiriba kan mga Paraoma asin Parasira kan Haponan, Bagong Sirang Farmers’ Cooperative, Siembre ARBs Assoc., Vegetable Growers Association of Tigaon, and Pag-asa Farmers and Farmworkers Association.

These organizations will be operating and maintaining the common service facilities which include five (5) solar-powered irrigation systems, a hauling truck, tractor with rotavator, a hand tractor, a corn sheller, a rice thresher, and two (2) tilling machines.

Ruth Bermillo, President of the Pag-asa Farmers and Farmworkers Association could not contain her happiness after receiving so much help from DAR.

“Salamat President Duterte, salamat DAR sa suporta sa aming mga magsasaka. Ramdam namin ang mga pagtulong ninyo sa amin para makamit ang tunay na pagbabago,” Bermillo said.  (DAR)
