Sultan Kudarat ARBs receive farm machineries and inputs

Isulan, Sultan Kudarat— The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) in Sultan Kudarat turned over farm machineries and farm inputs to agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) to help them increase their farm yields.

The ARB members from Green Multi-Purpose Cooperative (Green MPC) located in New Pangasinan, Isulan,  received a hand tractor with trailer, floating tiller, power tiller, traveling rice mill and 4WD tractor (40Hp), worth P1.5-million as part of the DAR-Climate Resilient Farm Productivity Support Project for Major Crop-Based Farming (CRFPSP-MCBF).

The DAR also supplied 50 sacks of complete fertilizer (14-14-14) worth P100,000.00, along with 50 pieces of shovel and 50 pieces of lagaraw (curved large heavy knife), valued at P75,000.00, under the Farm Field School for Rice.

Lobin Biñas, Chairman of Green MPC,  expressed his gratitude to the DAR for its support of their livelihood.

“Thank you to the DAR as this will help our organization and our families. Rest assured that we will help each other in ensuring the longevity of these farm machineries and farm inputs and that it will be put to good use,” Biñas said.
