Genetic improvement to boost seaweed production
MetadataShow full item record
The seaweed industry in the Philippines now faces certain challenges which include the decrease in biomass of harvested crops from farms mainly due to poor seed stocks quality, and outbreaks of various diseases. According to the researchers, the increase in seaweed production can no longer be achieved through the use of improved cultivation techniques alone. They said that there is a need to develop a technology for genetic improvement of commonly cultured species in order to boost productivity.
