A total of 174 agrarian
reform beneficiaries (ARBs) from the towns of San Jorge, Gandara and
Paranas became the first recipients of a starter kit for crop
production containing a shovel, a hoe, 10 kilos of complete
fertilizer, 10 kilos of vermicast, urea, organic pesticide, and two
varieties of seeds.
Director Ma. Fe Malinao, who led the distribution activities in
Barangay Bulao in San Jorge, explained that this farm productivity
assistance is the second component of the ARBold Move project which
is DARís immediate response to the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act.

expected to help you (ARBs) generate income from surplus production
and at the same time meet the nutritional requirements of your
households during this time of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)
pandemic, Malinao told the farmers.
