DAR conducts natural farming system training in Zambo Norte

Dipolog City (21 June) -- A total of 134 farmer-beneficiaries from the different Agrarian Reform Communities (ARCs) in Zamboanga del Norte have benefited a series of natural farming system (NFS) training recently.

The NFS training has been conducted by the DAR Beneficiaries Development and Coordination Division (BDCD) under the Agrarian Reform Community Project Phase II (ARCP2), a foreign-assisted project by the Asian Development Bank (ADB).

Participating in said training were 16 indigenous people. 56 agrarian reform beneficiaries (ARBs) and 78 non-ARBs.

This farming system encourages the use of natural resources and adopts a low cost and environment-friendly method of cultivating the farms aimed at addressing the problem on poverty and sustaining high productivity among farmers.

ARCP2 also focuses on the development of rural communities with the help of the local government units (LGUs).

It can be noted that the DAR continues to deliver support services to agrarian reform beneficiaries and other farmers through the implementation of foreign-assisted projects.

Under DAR?s Agrarian Reform Communities Development Framework, these foreign-assisted projects provide a package of interventions to ensure productivity of awarded lands resulting in increased household incomes and improved socio-economic standing of the ARBs. It also seeks to promote active participation in governance by indigenous people.

The long term goal of ARCP2 is poverty reduction in all ARCs in the area. (MO/PIA-ZN) [top]
