Funding worth P723,200.00 had recently been handed over to the members of the Tinuyop Rural Improvement Club (TRIC) in Zamboanga del Norte by the Department of Science and Technology Regional Office No. IX (DOST-IX), through the agency’s Grant-in-Aid (GIA) program for the upgrading of a corn mill facility.

The said funds will be used for enhancements that will improve product quality which means no more mixture of corn hulls in corn grits after milling, and increase milling capacity from 192-208 kg/hour to 250 kg/hour.

Prior to the establishment of the project, the community relied on bringing produce to a neighboring mill, chalking up additional costs for fuel and hauling.

Along with the mentioned advancements, members of the association also received training on equipment operation and maintenance from supplier Bongbong Mechanical Shop, in coordination with DOST IX, and the Municipal Agriculture Office (MAO).

Barangay Tinuyop is an assistance-priority community identified by the Provincial Task Force to End Local Communist Armed Conflict (PTF-ELCAC) for its vulnerability to militant struggle. Interventions by DOST and other agencies for the area are part of the “whole-of-nation” approach in ending insurgency as stipulated in Executive Order No. 70, series of 2018.   

Aside from Tinuyop, DOST-IX through its Provincial Science and Technology Center (PSTC), has also assisted a community in Sindangan, and is set to assist two more areas in the province this year.
