Agri-Food and Mixed-Farming in Semi-Arid Zones in Africa
Toll free: 16049419022
Using the model farming approaches for the Philippines Department of Agric.(DA) and Department of Science and Tech. (DOST) we turn to sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) or what we also call the sub-Saharan Semi-Arid (SSA) Zonal area aiming to create a climate conducive to mixed farming to improve farming techniques, job creation in rural areas, increase food security and proper nutrition and income or quality of life for subsistence or the small farmer of semi-arid Africa near the Sahel.
Proposed are seagrass vertical farming with insider agri-retailers for dairy farmers for fodders in fodder-poor areas around the Sahel due to semi-arid conditions.
Also, in specially irrigated zones or areas using large commercial reverse osmosis plants and piping of the H2O supply from nearby lakes, rivers or even the far-off Ocean shore with use of paddy culture (rice paddies in Egypt, north Africa, is one example), using water hyacinth and duckweed or even azolla as botanicals as fodders with ruminant livestock like cows, steers, sheep and goats and even buffalo, monogastric swine, poultry and both marine fisheries and other freshwater species.
In the far picture there is the opportunity of farming salmon in open net fisheries in lakes, rivers and streams using eco-friendly techniques using either saline or fresh water spp. Projects like these in semi-arid saline agriculture are unfolding in Arabia as we speak.
"SkyeBlue" would like to address aquatic resources around rice paddy farming and the engineering/ hydrology of such smart farming. "SkyeBlue" starts small by extension farming institutionally and then work up the technology/engineering, in future. On duckweed, (re: Australia is a source of more info for the region of SE Asia) is also a v. promising resource for fodder, human protein (cf. tofu, mushrooms) and energy and E-Z to grow in horticultural green housing a boon in the tropics without need for heating, just solar energy. Future human resources (HR) and their subspecialties will require skills like: Agric./Mech. engineering; Smart Farming (eco-farming included in future); Renewable or "green" energy; Hydrologist and Land Use Change Modelers given, according to the DA, the coming El Nino threat and with a project Small Scale Irrigation Project (SSIP) touted by DA which we should look into also. And there is also a matter of environmental engineering for fertilizer and pesticide authority or control including a pet subject of mine out of Pakistan, with water hyacinth (WH) for (PO4)2- recycling on-farm and farm waste or byproduct remanufacturing for mulching and composting from landfill use. I think the DOST is already inline with our desired project goal for mixed, smart farming amongst rice farmers in the Philippine home country.
In North America including B. C. Canada, I am promoting a local institute of technology, the Brit. Columbia Institute of Technology, BCIT, in Burnaby BC Canada for the pilot from federal and provincial funding (e. g. IAFBC) (we now have a sizable political "Green" Party opposition in BC) for a facility for open pond WH farming for organic recycling of (PO4)2-, fodder(s) and SSF-generated energy with haylage or ensilage and for duckweed with intensive green housing year round for food primarily from duckweed- if it catches on in this market. Apparently it has already in Australia (and elsewhere, e. g. SE Asia). Finally I would like to address fish farming and anti-zoonotic non-sourced from animal-based feeds from SCP yeasts, duckweed and azolla for FAAs (functional).
