MANILA, Philippines -The Department of Agrarian Reform has recently turned over P7.9 million worth of post harvest facilities and potable water system to the municipality of President Quirino, Sultan Kudarat.

Rodolfo Alburo, Provincial Agrarian Reform Program Officer II, said the water system amounting to P5.86 million and the post-harvest facilities, which include 450 square meter solar dryer and 36 square meter warehouse, with a total cost of P2.05 million, will improve the agricultural activities and living conditions of the farmers in the countryside.

The infrastructure projects are implemented under the Agrarian Reform Infrastructure Support Project III funded by the Japan Banking International Cooperation, Alburo said.

He said the Sitio Lagon Farmers Multi- Purpose Cooperative vowed to take care of the projects because its beneficiaries are majority of their members.
