MetadataShow full item record
Seaweed growers in Guimaras Island are increasing production through a counterpart-funding scheme with the World-Bank supported Philippine Rural Development Project (PRDP), the Department of Agriculture (DA) said yesterday. More than 400 seaweed growers from the towns of Sibunag, Nueva Valencia, San Lorenzo and Jordan are participating in an P18.5-million initiative called the Guimaras Seaweed Production and Marketing Project under the enterprise component of the PRDP. The Bureau of Fisheries and Aquatic Resources (BFAR) would provide seaweed growers with new varieties of planting materials that are resistant to pest and diseases.
