  • New Agriculture in Kedah: A Move Towards MD2 Pineapple

    By Jenny Hoo

    Published Sep 30, 2019 

    Kedah is a state in northern Malaysia and is well known for its agriculture industry, especially in paddy planting. In Malaysia, according to 2016 statistics, about 700,000 hectare land is provided for paddy planting and average annual growth is projected at 0. 03 percent[1]. Compared to other south east Asian countries, Malaysia is positioned as the net rice importer and least rice production compared to Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines. Malaysia imported 33 percent of their rice from Thailand, Vietnam and Pakistan while producing 67 percent of them locally, primarily in Kedah, Northern Perak and Selangor...

    Electricity production potential and Social Benefits from Rice Husk, a case study in Pakistan

    Authors: Obaidullah Mohiuddin, Abdullah Mohiuddin, Madina Obaidullah, Humayun Ahmed, Samuel Asumadu-Sarkodie

    Pakistan has been experiencing energy crisis owing to its sole dependence on fossil fuels. Reduction in local fossil fuel reserves has led to an increase in their prices, thereby increasing the cost of electricity. Since the tariff remains the same, Pakistan is over-burdened with circular debts and observes a daily power shortfall of about 12–14 h. Being an Agra-economic country, many major and minor crops are produced and exported in large quantities. This results in a bulk of the agricultural waste which are not utilized. The waste can be utilized to meet the country’s energy demand while mitigating climate change and its impact. The study examines the electricity production potential and social benefits of rice husk in Pakistan. It is estimated in this study that if 70% of rice husk residues are utilized, there will be annual electricity production of 1,328 GWh and the cost of per unit electricity by rice husk is found at 47.36 cents/kWh as compared to 55.22 cents/kWh of electricity generated by coal. Importantly, the study will increase the awareness of the benefits of utilizing agricultural waste for useful products such as silica, with several social and environmental benefits such as a reduction of 36,042 tCO2e/yr of methane, reducing carbon dioxide emissions, improving the air quality, and providing 4.5 k new jobs. The paper concludes with the policy recommendations based on this study.

    Social enterprise Ricult uses digital tools to empower rural farmers in developing countries

    For the last two years, the social enterprise Ricult has been empowering these farmers with an accessible platform that gives them the tools and insights they need to improve their lives.

    Farmers can use Ricult’s platform to secure credit, attain inputs such as seeds and fertilizers, monitor weather forecasts, and connect directly with buyers to sell their crops. Further, the platform helps farmers maximize their yields by providing personalized advice for growing crops based on soil tests.

    Photo: Ricult's founders say their mobile platform has helped smallholder farmers in Pakistan and Thailand increase their crop yield by 50 percent, on average. (credit: Ricult)

    Bioethanol Production from Waste Potatoes as a Sustainable Waste-to-energy Resource via Enzymatic Hydrolysis

    Authors: A A Memon, F A Shah and N Kumar

    Published under licence by IOP Publishing Ltd

    IOP Conference Series: Earth and Environmental Science, Volume 73, conference 1

    Ever increasing demand of energy and corresponding looming depletion of fossil fuels have transpired into a burning need of time to vie for alternative energy resources before the traditional energy sources are completely exhausted. Scientists are continuously working on sustainable energy production as an alternate source of energy to meet the present and future requirements. This research deals with conversion of the starch to fermentable carbon source (sugars) by fermentation through liquefaction by using yeast and alpha- amylase. The results show that the significant bioethanol production was achieved while using the parameters like temperature (30 °C) pH (6) and incubation time of 84 hrs. About 90 ml of bioethanol was produced from potato intake of 800 g. Pakistan being an agricultural country is rich in potato crop and this research bodes well to open new vistas to arrest the energy shortage in this part of the world
