After discovering to be more lucrative butt less physically tough, famers of Lanao Del Norte found a new alternative with seaweed growing.

Farmers of Lanao Del Norte decided to shift to seaweed growing after the full support given by their provincial government and also the technical assistance from the Department of Science and Technology (DoST).

According to Gov. Khalid Q. Dimaporo of Lanao del Norte, with the help of DOST, they were able to provide a Comprehensive Livelihood Emergency and Employment Program (CLEEP) for seaweed farming in the coastal towns of Kolambugan, Tubod, Maranding, Bacolod, Lala, and Karomatan.

Initially, the Provincial Agriculture Office (PAO) in this capital town already distributed seedlings along the area of Manga alone, wherein 75 families served as the first beneficiaries.

And with the positive impact of the said distribution, other families from the province also secure their own seedlings as similar to what has been distributed in Manga.

At present, Gov. Dimaparo said the PAO had extended the distribution of seaweed seedlings and DOST has allocated close to P1-M for the expansion of local seaweed farming project to serve more families in the province. [via mb.com.ph]
