CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGIES/INNOVATION

A highly active cementitious material, made from local clay and a good substitute for clinker which is used for Portland cement production, has been developed and transferred to an Entrepreneur for commercial production. Pozzolana has been tested and proven internationally to be very durable. It has the potential to replace Portland cement by 40% and save the country at least $30 million dollars per year on clinker imports.
Two new cowpea varieties, Nhyira and Tona, which are rich in Iron and Calcium have also been developed by the CSIR for release to farmers. It is expected that these new varieties of maize and cowpea will be used extensively to support the poultry industry in the country and the Public School Feeding Programme.
Developed vaccination schedules against the Gumboro (Infectious Bursal Disease-IBD) disease to protect both exotic and local poultry.

ANNOUNCEMENT

XIV World Forestry Congress
The XIV World Forestry Congress is now inviting applications for events.The XIV World Forestry Congress (WFC) is a major opportunity for the world’s foresters, forest supporters and intersectoral partners to gather, share expertise and experiences, and project a vision of the future role of forests in global sustainable development.
This will be the first WFC convened in Africa, and the organizers are encouraging broad participation – by the forest, agricultural, energy and water sectors, the public sector, civil society, and research and academic institutions, and especially by women, youth and the private sector.
