Sea water increases peanut yield
MetadataShow full item record
Did you know that you can increase the yield of your peanut by irrigating your plants with sea water? That’s what a lady farmer scientist from Ubay, Bohol had discovered in her own experiment. The farmer scientist is Cirila Cuyacot, a participant in the Farmer Scientist Training Program (FSTP) that was launched in 1994 by Dr. Romulo Davide, a professor emeritus at UP Los Baños. Under the program, ordinary farmers are taught the scientific ways of growing crops by experts from UP Los Baños and other agencies who conduct lectures and hands-on practice. They are called farmer-scientists and they are also encouraged to do their own experiments in their own farms.
