- Launch of the second project phase: construction of two new ponds in order to meet the project’s targets: a 600 m2 area to produce 900 kg of spirulina
- Pursuit of partnership development with local NGOs: “Building your Future Today” in 2 villages for 80 children, Anjali House for a hundred children and Smiling Heart Org.
2nd semester of 2014
The rainy season has started and this has strongly affected the productivity of the ponds in July. This problem is mostly due to the wind, which brings the rain in a lateral manner over the ponds.
1st semester of 2014
The ponds under construction have now been completed. Sowing can start once the spirulina blankets have arrived from France. Currently 400 m2 are operational and have produced 353 kg of spirulina over the first semester, i.e. an average productivity of 4.9g/ m2/ day. 248 kg have been given to Antenna Cambodia, which is in charge of socially distributing the produced spirulina in Siem Reap.
The rainy season started particularly late this year and it is most likely that the rainfalls will be much stronger this September and October than in previous years. This is why the team has chosen to anticipate this period and thus push the ponds’ productivity in order to build up stocks.
