The Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) has awarded Certificates of Land Ownership Award (CLOA) to 299 farmers in Agusan del Sur.
DAR-Caraga (Region 13) Regional Director Leomides Villareal said a total of 342 CLOAs, covering 393 hectares of farmlands were distributed to the farmer-beneficiaries.
He said that more distribution activities will be forthcoming in compliance with the directive of President Rodrigo Duterte.
Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II Jamil P. Amatonding Jr. assisted Villareal in the distribution of CLOAs. Amatonding urged the ARBs to be mindful of their obligations especially in maximizing the productivity of their newly-awarded farm lots.
He added that the department is doing its best to help the agrarian reform beneficiaries according to their individual needs in the farm as directed by the President who prioritizes the provision of support services along with the distribution of farm lots.
