Otikal commented on From wastage to hunger in 97 days

Sure! Awareness creation is low. Communities understand the value of food only in the face of hunger. There is also a dire need to introduce cash crops to replace food crops in the market to avoid selling food at give away process for non productive assets and commodities.


Otikal commented on Growing special tree to avoid mosquitoes

Great idea, i thought about this too much. It is the best, cheapest, easy to implement in a shorter period of time. besides the plants are readily available. However, like in Africa here where i leave,, mosquitoes have kind of gained resistance to this plants especially lemon grass that is readily available in local communities. What about thinking of cloning or combining this plant species to create one that will effectively repel or kill mosquitoes?
