Trinidad Domingo, PKKK spokesperson, said the petitions were filed in the Department of Agrarian Reform (DAR) on Thursday.
PKKK raced against the June 30 deadline when the authority of the DAR to issue NOC expires.
PKKK has demanded De los Reyes' resignation for the "snailpaced distribution" of a DAR backlog of 1.5 million hectares, said Domingo.
Anthony Parungao, agrarian reform undersecretary for legal affairs, said the PKKK petitions would be endorsed to regional directors and "shall be treated as agrarian law implementation (ALI) cases."
Sponsored by the Pambansang Koalisyon ng mga Kababaihan sa Kanayunan (PKKK), women farmers and fishers from various regions of Luzon have come together this week to call for support and awareness of women's role in global, national and local food security.
"It is high time the government strengthened its programs for women farmers by finding a market for their products and increasing their incomes," PKKK president Mary delos Santos said.
According to PKKK, over half of the world's food is produced by women, and yet less than 30 percent of small women farmers have access to extension services and only 9 percent have access to government capital support.
