'This modified technology enhances the cow’s milk production as well'

Mahbub Uddin Ahmed Chowdhury, a farmer based in Dhaka’s Kallyanpur area, cultivates soil-less grass for feeding his 22 cows.

"Soil-less grass is free from pesticides and insects which ensures safe food for the cattle in my cattle farm. 

“This modified technology enhances the cow’s milk production as well," said Mahbub

Terming the process to be profitable over buying grass from the local markets, he said: "Around 8kg to 9kg of soilless grass is produced in my farm in a total of 32 trays on a bamboo-made loft everyday."

“I learned this type of farming after receiving training from Bangladesh Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (BCSIR),” he added.

According to experts, not only innovations but modifications of the different processes related to production can enhance the growth of anything.

This is why it is necessary to ensure that the modified equipment provided by BCSIR is being utilized by the country’s root-level entrepreneurs, they said during a seminar titled "Transfer adaptive research and technology of BCSIR; current government's role and vision 2041." 

The event was held at the auditorium of the Institute of Technology Transfer and Innovation (ITTI) inside BCSIR’s facility in Dhaka on Wednesday. 

While presenting the keynote paper, Rezaul Karim, project director of ITTI, said that indoor grass production, recirculating aquaculture fish cultivation systems are the new dimensions of modified technological innovations of the government's industrial and research council.

“Microalgae production – a good source of protein and heat pump dryer – which is the most energy-efficient method of drying products while ensuring its quality – both being modified production processes introduced by BCSIR – needs to reach the root-level people of Bangladesh,” Rezaul added.

Echoing the same, Prof Aftab Ali Sheikh, chairman of BCSIR said: "Bangladesh can be seen as an example in the world by promoting technology transfer [modification]."

"Fish cultivation without ponds while keeping necessary neutrinos unchanged is the future of fish production [aquaculture]," he added.

"By transferring technology, innovations will have their proper utilization. And these modified forms [technology transfer] should reach the grass-root level entrepreneurs."

Md Shawkat Ali, a member of BCSIR, and Md Saimum Hossain, a teacher at Dhaka University, also spoke at the seminar. 

ITTI is a newly formed institute under BCSIR. It has been formed as an institute after the successful completion of a development project under the Ministry of Science and Technology named "Establishment of physical facilities in BCSIR for Technology Transfer and Innovation."
