Agriculture Secretary Proceso J. Alcala (top photo, middle) appreciates a miniature model of the P500-million modern corn processing and bulk storage facility in Reina Mercedes, Isabela, a project of Mindanao Grains Processing Co. Inc. of La Filipina Uycongco Corp. When completed, the facility can process up to 200,000 metric tons (MT) of corn-on-cobs into dried quality grains, and store these in huge bulk silos (foreground) with a total capacity of 60,000 MT. President Benigno S. Aquino III has been invited to inaugurate the facility in early October. Alcala said the agriculture and fishery sector needs similar postharvest and processing facilities in major food producing regions to boost the productivity and incomes of farmers and fishers, and at the same time reduce the prices of basic food commodities. With Alcala are engineer Sammy Mamauag (left) and Jess Bioco, of Mindanao Grains Processing. (Jose Lucas, DA Info Service)
