Since 2016, nearly 3000 kilometers of FMR have been constructed.

The Department of Agriculture’s Bureau of Agricultural and Fisheries Engineering’s (DA-BAFE) plans to improve and support both sectors have always included connecting farmlands to markets.

The DA-BAFE announced on Tuesday that since 2016, the agency has built 2,897 kilometers (km) of farm-to-market road (FMR) projects at a cost of PHP29.32 billion.

According to data obtained by the Philippine News Agency, a total of 49,042 kilometers worth PHP146 billion have been built in the last 20 years (PNA).

The Agriculture and Fishery Modernization Act of 1997, or Republic Act No. 8435, governs the implementation of FMR projects.

According to Section 52, the DA must work with local government units (LGUs) and resident farmers and fisherfolk to identify priority FMR locations, taking into account the number of farmers and fisherfolk who will benefit, as well as the type and importance of agricultural and fisheries products in the area.

LGUs must make FMR construction a priority investment and provide a counterpart of at least 10% of the project cost, depending on their internal revenue allotment level.
