LON: The Action Man

Lon (that’s the only name he gave) sent a comment on our post about Cirila Cuyacot, the lady farmer scientist from Bohol who found out that watering her peanut plants with sea water resulted in more robust plant growth and higher pod yield.

In that post, we expressed our hunch that watering coconut trees with sea water could work wonders, too. We also suggested that some government researchers should undertake a research on the matter so that aย science-based protocol could be made.

Now, Lon who lives about 500 meters away from the shore in Bohol, had taken upon himself to do the experimenting. He is now watering their coconut trees with sea water. He will be closely observing what will be the result. Lon, if you ask us, is a real action man. When he reads something he thinks doable, he does something concrete right away.

  1. We do know the sea water helps the coconuts, as I saw it first-hand more than a year ago. We have now begun to duplicate the process about 1 month ago, and we will report our findings in due time! Starting about 2 years ago we began piling cut weeds, leaves and small sticks around the base of the trees, roughly 1 meter high and 1 meter horizontally, and have almost tripled the outcome. This sea water experiment is truly an exciting prospect. Thanks for the compliment, I am not so much an action man, but I am someone that wants to see improvements!
