Biological Pest Control / Controle biológico de pragas

Biological Pest Control

The technology aims at biological pest control through reducing the use of common agrochemicals by supporting preferred habitats of biological pest control agents like amphibians and by using alternative self-made organic pesticides. Increasing habitat heterogeneity stimulates the diversity of amphibians and so a greater number of pest types will be controlled.

 

 

Controle biológico de pragas

A tecnologia descrita neste vídeo tem como objetivo o controle biológico de pragas. Duas linhas de ações são apresentadas que permitem a redução ou a completa abstinência de usar agroquímicos comuns. Recomenda-se a manutenção e o estabelecimento de habitats necessários para inimigos naturais tais como anfíbios. A crescente heterogeneidade do habitat dentro ou pelo menos ao redor do cultivo ou da plantação estimula a diversidade de anfíbios e assim um maior número de tipos de pragas será controlado. Se as pragas não têm inimigos naturais é indicado de usar pesticidas orgânicos ou caseiros que são menos nocivos para a saúde do meio ambiente e da gente do que os agroquímicos comuns.

Rapid method of hay transportation

This video is linked to the technology T_TAJ662en / T_TAJ662ru “Rapid method of hay transportation from highlands haymaking place by using hay carrying mechanism”.

It was produced in the frame of the project FLERMONECA (Forest and Biodiversity Governance, including Environmental Monitoring), financed by the European Union and implemented by the regional programme for Sustainable Use of Natural Resources in Central Asia of the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH.

Energy efficiency measures to increase the application of organic fertilizer

By building a new and more efficient stove, a lot of energy can be saved. Less dung cakes are needed for cooking and boiling water. This leads to a higher amount of organic fertilizer that can be applied on the fields.

Reduced pressure on forest resources by improved thermal insulation

Thermal insulation of private houses with energy efficient products helps to reduce the fuel-wood demand and pressures on the natural environment. With the new oven, it is possible to bake bread, boil water and cook food at the same time. The isolated windows, ceilings and doors keep the room warm even during the cold winter. Additionally, less manure is burnt in the stoves and can therefore be used as fertilizer on the arable land.
