Seaweeds brought to the shore by strong waves can be fermented to produce organic fertilizer. Note the seaweeds scattered behind Rodel Tumbaga whose work is to gather the strewn seaweeds near a resort where he works in Bolinao, Pangasinan.

1.Gather seaweeds and wash to remove dirt and sand. Finally wash with tap water, rinse.
2.Prepare the following materials: 10 kilos of seaweeds; 1 kilo of enzyme (Novatech Bio-enzyme); 1 kg high-grade molasses or 1.5 raw sugar (brown or muscovado sugar); clean water; glass or plastic container (about 20 liters capacity); and clean cloth.

3.Fermentation proper:
a) Grind or mash clean seaweeds.
b) Add clean water to make 10 liters in volume. Put in glass or plastic container that can contain 20 liters.
c) Cover with clean cloth and set aside in cool dry place with no direct sunlight.
d) Allow to ferment for 30-45 days or until solids are totally liquefied.

FINAL PROCESSING
a) Filter liquefied seaweeds through fine mesh or “katsa”.
b) Dispense in 1-liter plastic or glass bottles, cover tightly.
c) Store in cool place and out of reach of children and pets.

  1. This is great info!
    Just to confirm, the by-product is foliar fertilizer, right? Just use it in a typical knapsack sprayer?

  2. Dear Sir Zac,

    Saan tayo maka bili nag novatech enzyme? Marami kasi yung ganun klasi na seaweeds dito lalo na pag habagat. dinadala dito sa area ko.

    Yung pag grind or mash sa seaweeds kailangan ba pinong pino? Tpos basta nalang paghaloin ang mga sangkap parang mag halo nag cemento?

    Maraming salamat po. magkaroon ako nag maraming stock nag liquid fertilizer .
