DAR distributes land titles to Misamis Oriental farmer-beneficiaries
52 agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) from the province of Misamis Oriental recently received their certificates of land ownership awards (CLOAs) from the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR).
The distribution, that covered a total of 65 hectares of agricultural lands, was led by DAR Secretary John Castriciones.
“We will intensify the CLOA distribution and the provision of support services to ARBs in the country to support the thrust of the administration of President Rodrigo Roa Duterte to emancipate farmers, especially those in the far-flung villages from poverty,” Castriciones said.
The DAR chief added that upon his assumption as agrarian reform Secretary, his marching order from the President was to “do what you ought to do. Distribute lands that are for the farmers to uplift their economic lives.”
He emphasized that the President has also mandated the DAR to boost the provision of support services to the ARBs to develop the lands awarded to them.
